Please, please, please, PLEASE don’t leave your dog alone in the car – not even for a minute. It is freakin’ hot outside and so it is even hotter inside your car. I know you love your dog and you want to take him with you. But you don’t want him to die, right? Can you imagine going into the store for just a few minutes only to find your dog having a heat stroke when you come out? That would be beyond terrible!!!
I know you think it is only just for a moment. But what if you get stuck in line? What if you’re going inside a fast food place just for a second only to find it’s lunch rush-hour and getting your food is taking longer than you thought? Was it really worth it to bring your dog with you? I don’t think so.
Death isn’t the only danger of leaving your dog in the car. Your dog could suffer brain damage too. Or your dog could be stolen. Someone noticing your dog left in the car could be taking your dog to help save him from your stupidity or just for the sake of stealing your dog and trying to get you to pay money for him later.
Check out PETA’s article on the subject by clicking HERE. They also have a video on the subject which we featured a week or so ago. PETA says that even on a 78-degree day, the temperature inside your car can get to over 100-degrees in just a few minutes. Please don’t subject your beloved pet to this torture.
