Here’s a quick tip from Canine and Company, your local pro in dog care. Never leave your pet in the car on a warm sunny day!  It only takes 10 minutes for your car to reach over one hundred degrees, even with the windows cracked. Parking in the shade offers little to no protection, as the sun is constantly shifting through ought the day. The young, elderly, and obese are at highest risk, as are those   with thick dark coats and short muzzles.
