Default OMG. Warning about walking on hot streets!

It's been really summery here. HOT weather and lots of sun. We've been taking Brody on walks every day around the neighborhood. He LOVES to go and rushes ahead on his flexi and then runs back and then rushes ahead, guess we are too slow.

Anyway, tonight I noticed it looked like he was limping. I looked at his pads, thinking maybe he stepped on a sticker, and he has a little blister on each of his pads on his front toes! OMG. Terrible!

I'm sure he got it from the hot streets. I never thought about him being 'barefoot' when we are out walking when it's hot and sunny out and how the streets would heat up. He never gave any indication at all when we were out at all.

I feel TERRIBLE!!! Like the worst mom in the world!!!

I called his vet and he said not to worry, that they would subside in a day or so and to call him if they get worse or look infected. Right now they are just like 2 little bumps on the pad on each foot. He said I could give 1/4 of a baby aspirin every 12 hours for pain/inflammation so I just gave him the first dose. Poor baby!

Anyway.... please be CAREFUL when you are out walking your pups on a hot summer day. Those streets heat up and they can burn their little feet!!!

Here's what it looks like .....

Awww you're not a bad mama. LOL his expression in those pictures look more devastating than those blisters! I've never thought about a dog being "barefoot" either but that is really good advice.

Awww, poor Brody!! I'm always paranoid about pavement in the sun. They JUST paved our road yesterday too so it's nice & dark. Not going to be easy to walk the pups this summer...unless I go early or later at night.

I hope little Brody's paws get feeling better. They look so painful! I'm sure you feel bad but I'm sure he'll forgive you like yesterday.

WoW, poor Brody. I'm sure he will feel better in a few days. He's so patient with you taking pics of his feet. He's a little tropper.

Aw poor Brody! But don't feel bad, you couldn't have known. I know from reading your posts you're the bestest Mummy, Brody knows it too.

I hope his feetsies feel better soon!

Poor little guy!! He's worn out and wanted to go to bed. He puts himself to be at 9pm every night so I had to go dig him out of his sleeping bag and have David hold him up so I could take a pic and show you guys his owie. I hope it's better tomorrow!!
