Is it illegal to leave your dog in the car for a short while (like while you run into a store)?
Just to clarify, I would never do so in particularly hot or cold conditions, in fact I never do it right now as it is... There are just some times when I know I just need to run into the gas station to pay or I just need to run into the pharmacy and pick up an Rx when I wish my pooch could come along for the ride because I miss her :-)
Another note: She LOVES riding in the car... I have trouble keeping her out of it if I open the door. She loves to just sit in the front seat and look out the window. I guess I just feel bad leaving her at home alone when I do have to run errands when I know she loves riding with me.
