Dogs In Hot Cars

Post by Hexenbeest » Tue Jun 25, 2019 11:28 pm

My annual reminder -

When you’re out and about please look out for any dogs that may be locked in a car with little or no ventilation. If you do happen to come across one please don’t ignore it and walk on, even if the dog doesn’t look distressed - it can take only 20 minutes for a dog to become distressed and die in these temperatures.

Thank you.

When I die, I want to die like my grandfather who died peacefully in his sleep. Not screaming like all the passengers in his car.

Too easy to forget when you have air con. I got out the car and deadlocked it from habit leaving Sally and No 1 petit fils trapped in the car outside the old Mr Bricolage in Limoges. Luckily I realised I was being called to the customer services desk in time to open the car before any real harm was done and before someone, probably Sally, smashed a window.
It was a 607 and it DID lock the passengers in.
No 1 grandson actually asked Sally, very calmly, "Are we going to die?"
Never in the history o' calming doon has a Scottish person being telt tae calm doon, ever calmed doon.
