Don't Leave Your Dog in a Freezing Vehicle

Didn't think we would have to tell you this but...

Leaving your dog in a freezing car can be just as dangerous as leaving them in a hot car. Just like your car can act as an oven in the hot sun, it can act as a fridge in the winter. Please leave your fluffy bud at home

This is a Montgomery County, Maryland announcement.

Oh my! You'd expect people to have some common sense. Our little girl hates going out when it is raining or when it is cold. We put a tarp down before it snowed so she'd have a place to go. She is 16 and I feel like she looks at me with an expression that says, "Really? You're going to make me go out there"?

We had a dog growing up, and he loved borrowing in fresh snow creating tunnels, and he also could not wait to get back in...A

Extreme cold is as bad as extreme heat when it comes to animals being left outside or in a car.

I wouldn't leave children either.

Hi Roy= Whether it's hot summer heat or freezing cold temperatures, animals and children should not be left in the car.

It seems like a good pet owner would make sure their pets are in a good place whether it is hot or cold outside.

This is such a sad occurrence Roy, yet every year we hear about too many of these unfortunate situations.

We don't have to worry about that where I live but in the summer months, it definitely gets too hot to leave a dog in the car.

Great reminder, Roy. Just a shame that reminders like this are even needed! Wishing you a lovely Monday.

No living being should be left in a car in the heat or cold. Unfortunately, this warning IS necessary.
