If I saw a dog in a car that was parked in the shade with a sun screen and the windows notably rolled down, it'd be a different reaction to a dog in a regular car in the middle of a lot with the windows cracked an inch.

Uuuuuuuurgh I HATE seeing dogs left in cars on hot days.

How the hell am I supposed to know you'll only be a few minutes??

How do I know you haven't been gone 30 already?????

I will report every dog I see if the owner doesn't appear to be near by, or at LEAST leave a note in the car with an eta or something.

It eats me up inside thinking that dog could have been there for ages, and might still be there for ages.

The advice given here is to ring 999 every time.

I saw a dog left in a car the other weekend, hottest weekend of the friggin YEAR. Black car, in the sun. In a forest park!!!

I had no phone signal, so told staff in the near by cafe, and workman working in the car park. I could see a collie in the back in a crate. Window was cracked about 2cm on one side!!!

Drives me batty. It's ok you all knowing how long you're going to be, but when you see a car with a dog on a hot day, how are you meant it judge whether that dog is ok, and how soon it's owners will be back??!

I won't leave mine more than a couple of mins if I HAVE to get out the car. And we hardly get hot days here. My car gets hot sooooo quickly, I won't risk it. And I just think its a HORRID way to die!!!

I don't even remember how or why my friend got a puppy, but we had it in the car with us when we had to stop at a bar to speak to a friend that works there. We had a bowl of water from when we picked it up, it was like 10pm, and it was probably 75 degrees. Came back 10 minutes later to an angry woman and a cop that was threatening to write a citation and was very unhappy with me. I don't even get it. I've never found the temperature in my car distressing at night, ever.

Hot car/I'm going to be gone more than 20 minutes = dogs don't get to go on as many exciting car rides. Honestly, I worry more in the winter because Harlow gets cold. I always feel like I need to leave the heat on for her.

The dogs are left in the car during the summer, car is in the shade and the windows are down. If we have any doubts about how hot it will get in the car (aka, it would be even remotely uncomfortable for a person to sit in the car under the same conditions), someone stays in the car with them.

Yesterday it was a lovely, breezy, sunny day, probably around 75*F. We left the dogs crated in the car with the windows all of the way down when we popped in to Walmart. It was no warmer in the car than it was outside the car, and the dogs routinely spend hours outside, so...they were just fine.

And on that note, Cynder has already been outside for an hour this morning on her tether. Bad us.

I've always left a note on the window.. saying something like "Hey! I see you looking at me! My driver had to run into the store real quick, but I am fine in here alone. I'm not scared, I promise, I'm a big girl! However, if I do look sad, please let my driver know! She seems to respond to "Jess", and she can be reached at (cellphone number). Thank you for caring! Tail wags and kisses!"

Never had an issue, and I have gotten one phone call which was actually helpful (Rosey decided to play in her water and then was upset when she had none to drink...)

I leave him in the passenger seat. . . with the top down. Anyone who wants to try to remove him can suck it.

I actually will defriend people if they post those posters, it's a sign of ignorance.

Ones like this always irk me:



and



No, it's not like touching your hand or foot to the pavement. Human skin is NOTHING like a dog's paw pad. Dogs have thick, calloused pads that are meant for protection.

Additionally I can stomach much hotter pavement than others. I walk barefoot a lot and just moved after 10 years in Las Vegas. Plus I'm a badass like my dogs, don't judge us on your wimpy standards.
