If I read one more story about dogs or children dying in hot cars I think I will SCREAM!!
Please folks, have a little bit of common sense. If you're uncomfortable in the car, imagine how your pets are going to feel. Leave them at home in this weather. Our dogs are happier napping in front of the air conditioner with a big bowl of ice cubes than they would be out traipsing around with us.
I wrote this post last summer and would like to encourage you to read it again.
Take the OSPCA's "No Hot Pets" Pledge this summer. They will even send you a nifty sticker for your car which has the OSPCA emergency number. If you see hot pets in parking lots, take action, please, and help save a life!!
