|Never leave home with my boys...they are always with me.|
No matter the season no life dog or child should ever be left alone in a vehicle. As the weather heats up we must remind loving people not to leave his or her loved ones in a running or not running vehicle. I am always amazed how many people lose their dogs because of leaving the animals in a unattended vehicles. The sad part when the dogs die, they suffer great pain and torment.
Huffington Post reports a lady that went into a local Walmart in West Virginia to shop left two small dogs in her car with the AC running. In some strange manner, the dogs were able to put the car into gear and slowly run into the Walmart.
The report said people found the situation strange. I wonder how these dogs got the car in gear. Every since I was able to drive, some thirty years ago, a person had to hold the brake in to place the car into gear. I suspect this lady left the car in drive by mistake or in haste.
No matter the reason the car was in gear and moving , the dogs being left alone in a vehicle is dangerous. This lady is a funny, yet good example why we do not leave our animals unattended in a vehicle in warm, hot, or extreme cold.
Lots of things can go wrong when a vehicle is unsupervised, such as AC stops working or a desperate person can steal the vehicle.At least no dog had to suffer for this lady to learn a lesson. Let's hope this lady has learned to never leave her animals unattended in a vehicle regardless if the AC is on or not.
