every responsible dog owner knows not to leave their dog locked in a hot car, but that's not the only summer time danger to your furry best friend. did you know what when it's 77 degrees out, the asphalt, in the sun, is 125 degrees? wouldn't be so fun to walk on that with no shoes, huh? so don't make your dog do it.
just remember this - hold the back of your hand against the asphalt for 10 seconds and see if it hurts. if it's too hot for you, it's too hot for you dog and his sensitive paws. talk him for a walk on the grass instead.
