Don't Let Pets Drive, It's Too Hot For Them In The Car

This is only transportation related because it involves vehicles, but a reminder that it's supposed to be in the 90's through the rest of the week so if you HAVE to take your dog with you in the car, don't leave them there while you shop, see a movie, etc. Even dogs with a cool haircut like Lily here can suffer dehydration, heat stroke, and sunburn (dogs with haircuts are especially prone to sunburn) within just a few minutes of being left in a hot car.

I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

Thanks Patricia! Or should I call you 'Mom?' Just kidding, My mom is usually the only person who reads what I write :) It's good to know there are other people out there reading too.
