Photo by Betty Walter of Long Drive Dog and Cat Hospital in Houston. Here’s the caption from Betty’s facebook page: To these amazing guys that help me and some of my neighbors dogs that I rescued. I was worried there was too many dogs on the boat and it would tipped over. I told them I would stay behind and for them to make 2 trips. They said NO we are taking all and you. We had 21 dogs on this boat. No place for any humans on this boat. We had to walk in water over my head to get out.
Please I am going to need help if you can donate. paypal.me/betty23
So many people and animals in need. I’m so glad Betty was able to find help to get her dogs out.
I don’t understand how this is a hard concept. You don’t leave dogs in parked cars. Never. Or at least not in the summertime. I know I rant about this every summer, but apparently people still don’t realize that hot cars can kill a dog very quickly. On an 80-degree day, especially if it’s humid, your car interior can heat up to over 100 degrees in a matter of minutes. Continue reading How Many Dogs Have to Die?→
The good folks at Orvis have put together a handy infographic, spelling out the current laws in each state concerning how you can transport your dog. Some states like New Jersey and Rhode Island require a harness or crate, while others do not. In some states, there are laws proposed, while others have had their proposals fail in the legislature. Finally, some states have other laws such as those governing distracted driving, that can be used to cite you if you have your dog loose in the car. Do you know what your state requires?
The graphic is too interactive to post it easily here, but you can check it out over on the Orvis site.
For those of you who are still suffering under a heat wave or are expecting a hot summer. It has happened again. Police in New Jersey had to rescue a dog (and a two-legger!) who had been accidentally locked in a hot car. WPVI, 6-Action News, the ABC affiliate in Philadelphia reports on the scary incident.

From NBC4 in Washington, DC: Maryland firefighters had an interesting rescue run over the weekend when an 85-pound Border Collie named Siri fell into a 8-foot sinkhole near Annapolis.
Although it was deep, the sinkhole only measured about 2-feet by 2-feet, making it tricky for the firefighter to be lowered into the hole to get the dog. But, 90-minutes later, they were able to get the dog to the surface.
Siri was very much in need of a bath, but was otherwise fine.
Kudos to all the firefighters who took the time to care.
Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
