Hi Everybody,

I knew about the dangers of hot asphalt and dogs’ paws, but I have never seen a visual that spelled it out so clearly. It is definitely an issue in San Antonio in the summer, and yet I see people walking their dogs in the heat of the day. Rick and I walk Roxie and Gypsy only in the morning when it is hot.

Happy Fourth of July to you and your pets!
