Well, even if your dog was safe, I have to be the odd man out on this one. I think even if it's a false alarm, I'm glad people in general are becoming more aware of this problem. There are still so many people who put their dogs AND children at severe risk by leaving them in cars when the car's temperature can increase to deadly levels and the oxygen levels decrease significantly. It really doesn't take an incredibly hot, sunny day to heat the car up too much. And rolling windows down just an inch or two can actually create a pressure situation where the outside air is kept out. Even over cast days or even when it's not very hot, it can actually heat a car up fast.

So, I'm in the better safe than sorry camp. And even though it was annoying to have this person call the cops, it could be looked at like....some day she may call the cops on someone whose dog is really in trouble and might save that dog's life.
