A hot car is not the place for your dog to wait for you

Summer is in full swing and the hot weather is here.  Please remember that a hot car is not the place for your dog to wait for you.  Save that errand for later or leave your dog at home.   Even leaving the car windows open will not keep your dog from dangerously overheating in just a few minutes.

Don't believe me?  I challenge you to sit in your car in the full sun for just 10 minutes and tell me how you feel.  Your dog feels worse in his fur suit. 

Hot Car Statistics: 

Let's talk about what to do if you see a dog in danger in a parked car outside a store.  Breaking the car window and/or confronting the owner should be your last choices.  An angry, defensive owner can be a danger to you.  Laws vary from State to State, and unfortunately Michigan doesn't have anything passed yet (but they are working on it).  Call 911 if you sense that a dog (or child) left unattended in a vehicle is in grave danger. Don’t hesitate. Don’t go in search of the car owner. Dial 911 and let authorities handle the situation.

Be safe, enjoy the warm's Michigan and we'll all be cold again sooner than we would like!
