All Meat Wieners are fine in cars. Overheated Huskies or Chihuahuas not so much.
P E T C A R E — My dear friend Bette in Seattle, THE dog care champion of the world, has written another great column with tips and reminders about carrying your pets in cars during the summer. Please read if you have pets. Please read even if you don't. I had to report a car to the courtesy desk at my grocery store last week because a VERY hairy mutt was barking his little head off in a hot car with the windows lowered just two inches. To my delight, the clerk got on the loudspeaker immediately, and after giving the car's description and licence tags ID, gave the person ONE minute to get outside and take their dog out of the car or she would call the police and have the windows broken to get the dog out—I think it must not have been the first time someone had complained about a pet in a hot car. Are people really that stupid? It worked, and the woman got in her car and drove away without finishing her shopping, but I would have liked to have had her arrested anyway.
Check out Bette's column here. And you can always find a link for "Walking The Dog" in my blog roll at the right.
