    My dog leads the life of a king. Suckers in the AC more than me.

    Same here. We would have sold the RV years ago if not for them needing their rolling kennel.

    Yep,mine are in a cool 68 degress.I just remembered the pavement being outrageously hot,and what it does to their feet.
    Then I remembered the white lab locked in a f-250 last summer.The guy came back,but I wondered how long the poor guy had been roasting.
    The old folks bother me the most with pets.They think because its a comfortable 99 degrees to them that fluffy likes it while they go to the drs.

  6. My dog spends less time in the heat than me. F&ck I even put a fan in the garage for her for when she follows me outside. My dogs a bit spoiled but she’s a great dog.

    When i take mine out in the car, he always has a bowl of water and if i have to go in store real quick, i remote start car and leave him in it with air on and his water. Other than that , he is laying on couch chilling in a cool 72 degree house

    Yup, 68 and comfy for my pups. We go out to play when I get home, just for less time when it gets hot.

    Check your local laws about out door tethering . In ga they have passed a law against leaving dogs tied up outside,
    I hope it prevents dogs from freezing,or dieing from heat.
    If you see a dog suffering,please report it,and make sure its followed up on.
    Last summer I reported 2 strays,and one that was already ran over.Hall county never responded,and one of the strays got ran over,
    They never removed either body,despite me giving details on where the dogs were located.:mad:
    They have the resources,but acted like I was a bother.

    They have options. But having grown up in a house with no AC they're just fine. There are thousands of homeless who choose to live here in Vegas where it's been over a hundred for the last week or more and they're just fine with the heat.
