Hey Barkingdog, I realized after that yes that's what I said, and I guess it's not really accurate. She loved the adventure, new smells and all, but none of us really enjoyed the heat. We'll go back there again when it's cooler and "really enjoy" the walk. Being black she does suffer some from the heat, but no more than any of us do I don't think. She's smart enough to move to the shade when she gets too warm. On this day we did stick to the shade due to the heat, and really kept the walk very short by my choice on account of not wanting to overdo the dog. No offence was taken, I know we all share equal concern of the pets here.
