    I hear that Hun!! by god do i hear that.. Laalie was out on the balcony with the Mrs this afternoon, Mrs saw she was 'over heating' even with her water bowl, so Mrs went in got the clothes dryer out, and put a sheet over it on the balcony, and a blanket on the floor.. and laalie was quite happy..
    but i fear Not every one can see the effects the heat has on there pets, butthere is NO EXCUSES for keeping ya dog in a car!
    Our Van has a van system built in yo keep them cool, but in this heat, i REFUSE point blank to even consider taking them out!!
    I came home to night and the outside Temp at 6pm in Scotland was 22.5 degrees!! Thats to hot for me, n/m the dogs!!!

    Stupid question - but is there a law on this? Surely these idiot owners should be prosecuted?

    There have been some prosecutions for leaving dogs in hot cars but I expect it's only a small proportion. How many don't get reported?
