Why do people think it’s ok to leave their dog inside their vehicle while they go run errands on 100+ degree days?
This dog was spotted panting inside the hot vehicle, all by itself at about 3pm on Wednesday afternoon.
The picture-taker said the windows were down a little, and the dog did have food & water, but it’s still probably at least 115-degrees inside the vehicle, and most people forget that dogs are wearing coats, and they also can’t sweat. As you can tell, the dog in the picture is hot, and probably very miserable.
At least one dog already died this week after its owner, Angela Kleinfeld, left it in the burning hot vehicle in Pleasant Hill.
Remember, if you wouldn’t leave your groceries in your car when it’s hot, then don’t leave your dog!
