It was hard to tell whether these were Cougar tracks, or from a Dog

I don't know if this is true but, old mountain man advice is that cat tracks don't show any claws marks but canine tracks will.

Yes, you are correct. We looked for claw marks but didn't see any. So, it could have been a cat, or, it was a dog and the sun had melted-away the claw marks.

Cat's pads have three lobes. If you can see the lobes it is the best way to tell.
