he can't handle the heat

on saturday we went on a walk in marin. it was supposed to be a hike, but it turned into a glorified walk.
that was partially because of my awesome stomach and partially because of jack.
in preparation for our little saturday adventure, we purchased some hiking booties for jack.
i think he felt like a racing dog in them because he was all about sprinting.
he was really enjoying the open space and his booties, but not the heat.
at first he would just stop and sit and wait till i gave him his bowl of water.
then it turned into more of a protest that involved him laying in the dirt.
it was clear he was struggling so we turned around and headed back to the car.
this put jack into a running frenzy. he would just run from shady spot to shady spot, lay down and wait for us to catch up.
the poor pups hasn't experienced anything but the nice and cool san francisco weather.
he just couldn't handle the heat.
i've never seen his tongue hang that far out of his mouth.

  1. Dying over the booties. I looked at the pictures before I read the text and thought - is he wearing shoes?!?! By golly, he is. :)
