That's one thing I definitely do not like about summer - seeing dogs left in cars with the windows cracked open. When will people get brains? Probably not in my lifetime....

I totally agree. I live in FL and I would think people would know better since it is hot most of the year here. I don't even leave my dogs in the car in Jan and Feb. here. It drives me crazy to see people do this.

I agree, MZ. I honestly don't think about this with Max because he is in the house with A/C all the time, but this is definitely an issue for many cats.

I have had heat exsaution twice in my life before and heatsroke once before it's not fun at all I didn't end up in the hospital but I did have to be rushed back home once and rushed back to my grandma's one time when I was staying there. When I got heat stroke though there was no one around except my step dad and step sisters we stopped in the shade every few minutes we were on a walk and then we would start up again when we got home I layed down on the couch and my step dad brought me a glass of water I drank it and then I fell asleep and when I woke up later on in the day my mom was home but I did not remember anything at all about before I fell asleep and they had to tell me what had happened. I always keep close watch on Skitters, Teddy and Shorty in all seasons. One time I was watching animal cops and some stupid person left all four of there dogs on the roof of their calaforina apartment building during the summer. Three of the dogs had died and their bodies from how hot out it was had melted into the roof. It was the worst animal cruelty I had ever seen. They where able to save the 4th dog though a black lab mix one that was horribly dyhydrated and very young. The other dogs had melted into the roof so much that you couldn't even tell what breeds of dogs they were all they knew was that the other dogs were black too and they were bigger than the younger dog that they were able to save. The dog that did get saved found a new home he was so cute black labs I love them so much my grandma use to have one and any other labs as well. I use to have a lab puppy named Kirby that we were unable to keep. My grandma's lab named Kacy got hit by a car. every time I volunteer at the humane socitey there is one lab that touches my heart. first there was Nicky a yellow lab very sweet then there was sammy and then there was another yellow lab named Nicky who loved to take her humans for walks. Then last but not least my favriote lab of all time was a black lab that I named at the humane socitey I named her Julie. She was beautiful and so sweet and she was so attached to me that I never wanted to leave her and she did not want to go back in her kennel. That was before my dad had a dog I begged him to adopt Julie so he came to look at her but he said she was too big of a dog for him she did get adopted but I wish she would have came home with me. Then the other animals I have seen a group of small dogs in a car that the next day when I was at the humane socitey those dogs were there.

I can't even imagine how those poor dogs suffered. People can be so cruel.
