Honestly, I shouldn’t even need to write this blog. And frankly, you blog readers, don’t need the message. But as dog lovers – we have to keep getting the word out: DO NOT LEAVE YOUR DOG IN THE CAR IN THESE SUMMER MONTHS.
It is inconceivable to me hope this can still happen. In a town not too far from here, a woman has made it her mission to regularly patrol the parking lot of a local shopping center, looking for dogs in cars. And she has found (and saved) some!
I also read a very sad story about a family who had a dog in the car and left him in his crate, with the air conditioner left on. Sadly, the crate was located in a sunny spot in the vehicle, and although the air conditioner WAS running, the poor dog suffered heat stroke. And died.
The moral of the story- in hot weather, it is probably best to leave us at home. Certainly if someone is staying in the vehicle with Fido, that’s one thing. But don’t leave us alone. PLEASE!!!!!!!
And speaking of sun dogs – the FG is a funny guy. Outdoors he heads for a shady spot on the deck. Inside, he looks for the sunny spot. He is just SO interesting…
It was around this time three years ago that my human was making plans to pick him up. At that point, Einstein and I had no idea how our lives were about to change. As you may recall, I was not all that enamored with him when he first arrived. But now, we are good buds. Mind you, I don’t allow him to trim my feet like Einstein does. But we do hang out together. He is very respectful of both me and Einstein. We all get along super – which some might find surprising- because, how shall I word this…all of us have “all of our parts.” People sometimes think that “intact” dogs can’t live together. Well. We do just great. Now- there are no girls to impress – and I don’t necessarily think our sunshine and happiness household would be so bright if a girl was thrown in the mix. But without a girl – we’re all good. OK – we DO have her highness but she doesn’t count. She’s probably the one to keep things in line here too. Or she THINKS she is. We’ll just let her keep thinking that.
Have a good one. Peace and paws up.
