Don’t Leave Your Dogs in The Car…Or the Truck

Hard to believe that people still don’t know not to leave a dog inside a parked car, but it has happened again. 

Forty-year-old Robert Dufresne was released on his own recognizance after pleading not guilty on Monday to two counts of animal cruelty.  He apparently left his yellow Lab and his Chihuahua-Corgi mix in the back of his pickup truck, which is capped.   The truck was parked for at least two  hours at the mall.  The small dog survived, but the Lab died from the excessive heat.

OK, so I guess not everyone realizes that the back of a pick-up would get as hot as the inside of the car, but it stands to reason it wouldn’t make much of a difference.  You still have an enclosed space with windows that let in all the heat of the sun.

I’m wondering what was so important at the mall that the dogs had to be left there for more than two hours.  Tragic!

Until next time,

Good day, and good dog!

  1. I agree with the let him spend 2 hours in the back of his truck. Also, I have left notes on people’s windshields if I see a dog left in a car. I can’t imagine why people seem to think they have to take a dog along to the store. Do you think the dog enjoys sitting in the car, hot or not?

  2. Maybe for punishment the owner of the dogs could spend 2 hours in the back of the same truck,in the heat of the day,just to see how HE likes it!!!
