Hot Dog!

We don't have any pictures to go with this post because Mom didn't have her camera with her this morning. We just wanted to share with you what happened at her office building this morning. She was taking her break and she and a friend were walking around the office building and they came across a parked car with a little dog locked inside. Two of the windows were barely down and it was already getting very hot outside! After finishing their walk (about 20 minutes later) they noted the dog was still locked in the car. They notified the local police dept. and they came over and broke into the car and freed the dog! Had it not been for our mom and her friend this poor pooch probably wouldn't have made it. The person who owned the car did not come back to their car for well over an hour! We know none of you guys would ever be put in this situation by your owners but we just wanted you to all be aware! The weather is so hot right now and it doesn't take long for a car to turn into an oven! Just yesterday an 18 month old child was left in a car in a town just down the road from us and sadly he didn't make it! What are people thinking when they do these things???
Stay cool and be careful!

Hi, Ozzie and Rocky!
Glad your mom saw him!
I guess the problem is that people DON'T THINK when they do those things!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

here in AZ there is a special line to call just for stuff like this because it is obviously VERY hot here a lot of the year. Your Mom did a good thing for sure, give her some hugs and kisses from us.

Oh no...I'm so glad your mom and friend made that call. I don't understand how anyone can do that. I went to the grocery store today and the car next to me, it's engine was running and I saw a little dog in the back window. I guess the engine was running to keep the air conditioner on. But still, I don't think it's a good idea to leave little ones in the car in this heat at all ... even with the air running.

Bless your mom for rescuing the doggie! But how horrible for the child. It's such a tragedy!

Love ya lots

Good for your mom for letting the authorities know! I am so tired of hearing stories where people see stuff like that and do nothing! Good work!
