Does anybody remember, a few years ago, there was a huge outcry over people leaving dogs in their cars, sometimes for hours, with the windows closed, or just barely cracked open, and with no water?
Does anybody know somebody that tends to latch onto one little shred of information and decides to base a religion around it?
Yup, so anyway, we stopped for lunch after Mom finished at the doctor and Windy, my dog, and I did some shopping at Petco. All four windows in the car were open wide, and with the slight breeze, it was actually a few degrees cooler in the car than outside, but somebody HAD to call the Police.
Apparently, however, the officer just walked up, saw Windy happily looking around and with both regular and ice water available to her and just walked away. He was still sitting there when I came out (yes, I did check on her previously) with her leftovers and didn't even bother confronting me, just drove away.
I suppose I shouldn't complain about people who try to be concerned with something other than themselves, but really, I can't consider a knee-jerk "call the Cops" in a situation like that anything but an attempt at self-glorification.
