It’s a holiday weekend and folks are going to be getting out and enjoying themselves. If you’re one of them and plan on taking your dog please remember that even though the temperatures are cooling down it can still get deadly hot inside your car. Leaving the windows cracked and a little water is not enough. If your dog can not accompany you wherever you go, plan on leaving him at home. If you do take him be sure he’s ready for a public outing. How is he with strangers, or in crowds or with strange dogs. As much as we love them sometimes our dogs are happier to just stay home than be in uncomfortable surroundings and the most uncomfortable and sometimes fatal surroundings is the family car in the sun.
