Her advice for escaping the Texas heat is actually for your DOGS:
When you take your dog out for a walk, put your bare hand on the pavement – if you can’t hold it for 15 seconds, then they can’t walk on it either.
If it’s too hot for your bare feet, it’s too hot for your dog’s paws. Don’t stand on hot surfaces; keep your dog moving. Walk in grass when you can.

Klein’s favorite summer activities are to play golf but especially loves to hang out with his red lab, Shabba.
