Yeah, I agree... although it seemed like most of the people who dressed their dogs up had extra precautions with them (water bottles, ice packs, etc.), so for the most part I think they did okay... but yes, it was HOT!! At least there was a breeze, but still... The one I felt the worst for was that pony, though. We actually saw it on the track and the way it was walking looked REALLY uncomfortable. Sure, the tennis shoes were cute, but I really don't think they were doing that poor fella's legs any favors. He was walking bowlegged in the back, as if he was afraid to bend his knees! Despite those few things, though, it was still a lot of fun. Morgan had a good time. He made it the whole way around without a single complaint, and he slept really well yesterday afternoon.
