Baking Day

Next time you think about leaving your dog in the car on a hot day consider this:

While baking cookies in your car on a hat day may be cool in a weirdly nerdy sort of way, doing the same thing to your dog is not.

"Is she done yet?"

    A twenty year old autistic man died in New York city today after he was left in a van at one o’clock in the afternoon. The coroner said that he was dead within an hour.

    What makes me so angry about dog death by hot car is that, unlike the baby death by hot car tragedies we inevitably hear on the news in summer, the dog is usually left in there *intentionally* – with the windows cracked, natch.

    Last week when it was oppressively hot in Ohio, I had to stop at a gas station with the dog in the car. I made sure to go to a pump in the shade and put the back windows down as far as they would go (she knows better than to jump out!).

    I still felt bad leaving her for ONE MINUTE while I went inside to pre-pay, and half-expected someone to harangue me on leaving my dog in the car on a hot day when I came back out.

    Maybe it’s just me, but I have no idea how they can just waltz off for any length of time without a second thought.

    […] dog in the car in the scorching summer sun. If these words don’t carry enough weight, maybe a video of cookies baking in a hot car will. Jump over to Smartdogs’ Weblog to check it […]

    I think that people need to stop being in such a rush now days and to use a little common sense. Everybody knows how hot a vehicle can get on the inside during hot weather yet this continues to happen. People just need to think a bit. Thanks for driving the point home.
