Give Pets Some Air
There's a letter to the editor of the Times- Standard today where the writer reminds us not to leave pets inside cars with the windows closed. The letter doesn't seem to available online yet.
This is certainly good advice, especially around here where some might think our relatively cool weather makes the temperature inside cars a non- issue. But it has been fairly warm as of late, so give your dog some air if you have to leave it in the car.
Some people who you think would know better often forget about their pets, and some maybe just don't care.
Back when the old group home was operating across the street one of the gals that worked there would often leave her dog locked in her car. The lady who lived across the alley from the group home was returning home after walking her dog and the group home gal was leaving her car to go into the house.
I could hear the neighbor lady telling the group home gal, "You really shouldn't leave your dog in the car with the windows rolled up like that.". The group home gal responds, "Don't tell me how to take care of my fucking dog.!".
Another lovely day in the neighborhood.
