Please protect dog paws from hot pavement

Published: Wednesday, July 10, 2013 1:15 a.m. CDT

If you are going to have your dog in the parade, please think about its health. Even standing on the hot pavement for just a few minutes can burn the pads on its paws. 

Put some booties (Muttluks) or something on its feet.

If not, how about next time, the owners of the dogs [should] be out there on the hot pavement walking in their bare feet?
