A good reminder about dogs, cars, and summertime heat

Sorry for the lack of posting action going on lately. I don't have a whole lot of news, but I'll share what I do have later this evening.

In the meantime, here is an excellent reminder about how lethal it can be to leave your dog in a hot car. Complete with unforgettable descriptions of how the heat turns their organs to mush.

Here's a rundown of the important facts:

* Even 75 degrees can be too hot
* Cracking the windows doesn't help as much as you think it does
* Even if you get back "in time," the heat can permanently damage their organs
* Saving a dog that's been left in a hot car too long can cost you thousands in vet bills

If you know anyone who has a habit of leaving their dogs in the car, please forward the article to them.
