Amen to that Dawg! I have a relative who wouldn't wait for the cops and broke out a car window with a crowbar when he couldn't find a stupid dog owner in the deadly heat. Instead of getting in trouble with the law he was written up as a hero in the small town Arizona news paper.
Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.

good advice, dawg. thanks.

and one more thing: dogs shouldn't have free run inside a car when it is in motion. theyshould be on a leash and tethered in some way to prevent them from jumping out a window, or worse, jumping into the driver's lap which could distract the driver, or even cause the driver to lose control of the vehicle.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose. The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder where the fair wind blows.

Only slightly off topic--I hate, hate, hate to see people driving with a dog in their lap. Aside from the dog being in the way of the driver, the dog will DIE if the airbag goes off. A little fender-bender (probably caused by the dog getting in the way of the steering wheel), airbag deploys, dead dog.

Fortunately, most people don't drive with babies on their laps any more.
I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.

I could never imagine leaving my kids in a car during the summer months. I do take them with me but I take my spare key with me so I can leave my car running with the air on for them. I lock up my car so no one steals them or my car. I don't do it often but sometimes they really need to get away and go out with me.

This is very important, I agree. Not to be taken lightly!

Love my dog. He loves taking rides with me but I would never leave him in the car if it's hot, at all.
Order's Up!

One of my friends routinely left her yorkies in a little kennel in her car, sometimes all day. She said they cry if they're left at home. And I routinely chewed her butt for doing that, explaining how hot a 70 day is in the car. She's promised she won't do that anymore.

It is such a horrible thing to do.

In our little town people are very aware of this problem and watch all the time - even in the winter months when it is so cold. It is not at all uncommon for them to have the police come out and take care of the problem.

Yes, a lot more people should stick by this!

Leaving them in a hot car is one of the worst things ever!

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt
