Does anyone leave their dog tied up outside whilst they pop into the shops/supermarket? I've only ever left Bailey outside alone twice, once when i was quickly popping into the doctors to collect something and then outside the pharmacy when picking up a prescription. but i really dont like doing it. i am scared someone will take a fancy and be off with him. i'v heard so many stories of dogs being stolen in this way. also last week when i was at the supermarket, there was a little poodle tied up outside. it was a really hot sunny day and he didnt have any shade. poor little dog. so do you ever leave your dog?
