Please protect dog paws from hot pavement

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?
