If you are walking your dog this summer, you could be hurting him/her and not even know it!

After walking to the beach today and burning the bottom of my feet (and I didn't realize it until I got home and saw the blister) I thought that this article was particularly appropriate:

If You Can’t Stand the Heat ... On Burnt Pad Denial in Dogs Read the entire article here... 

"And here’s the thing about dogs: They rarely let us know when things really hurt — in this case, on the hot walk or otherwise. When it comes to leash walks in particular, few energetic dogs are willing to let their humans down.So dog owners should keep it in mind: If it’s too hot for you to walk barefoot, it’s too hot for your dog, too!"
