    I feel so passionate about animal rights....I would probably end up with a black eye but I don't care as long as I said how I felt.
    I do the same thing. Why do they feel the need to take their pets out and leave them in the first place? Leave them home in the cool house or in the bathroom on the cool tile.

    My dog loves the tiled foyer of my house. She also loves the bathtub She'll lay in there when it gets a little too warm for her liking. Especially if we haven't turned the air on yet She's so cute!

    A former neighbour had a completely out of control dog that used to destroy the house if it was left there alone, even for a few minutes. The owner was a useless wimp who didn't apply any kind of discipline to her 'precious baby' so she used to take the dog in the car so it could destroy that instead. The inside of that (expensive) car looked like Freddy Kruger had gone on a slashing frenzy in there, not a stupid yappy Yorkshire Terrier called Binky Boo or whatever.

    I use to think it was so cruel to leave a dog in the house in those crates until I read an article that said when they are left alone they get frightened and don't know what to do. Time for them is not the same for us. So if they are kept in a crate they feel more secure and safe. Who knows?

    I've gone into stores with the license plate number and asked the manager to make an announcement about a dog left in a car. I've also waited by a car until the person came out and told them that what they were doing was wrong. I really don't care what people that stupid think of me. I care about the animal.

    Perfect example of appropriate use of a crate.

    My sister owns a former show dog that has always lived in a crate because of all the travelling it did with it's former owner. The dog loves her crate and goes there when she wants to sleep or get a break from the kids who know not to disturb her when she's in there. Of course the dog was trained from birth to stay in a crate so it's easy - I'd guess it would be much harder getting an older dog into the habit.

    Yes, my yorkie was crate trained. She chooses to nap in it & we just leave it open for her.

    At our Crown Casino (as big, maybe bigger than a Vegas casino) they have special patrols in the carparks specifically looking for kids and animals locked in cars. It happens all the time apparently. Assholes.

    I almost got beaten up once by a redneck, who then threatened to sic his dog on me. The poor dog looked half dead, so I wasn't too worried.
