My dog (actually my wife had her first, but she loves me more now) is a big fan of walks. Even in the DFW summer heat, she has to have her daily walk. After seeing FaceBook posts about the hot ground and potential damage to dog feet, I decided to take some measurements myself. These were taken on a 100 degree day. The pics are of my front porch in full shade, the sidewalk in front of our house, and the road in front of our house. It definitely makes me pay more attention to where my dog spends her time while out walking.
