Please, remind everyone about taking your animals in the car to the store or elsewhere and leaving them. It's against the law to leave your pet(s) in a car.
On April 10 I saw a lady drive into the parking lot at the new Winn Dixie on Manatee Avenue. She had a dog with her.
She rolled the windows down about four inches and the car was in the hot sun. It was very warm that day.
I watched her go in and I waited until she came out. The poor dog was barking and barking.
Never miss a local story.
She was in the store for about 10-15 minutes. When she came out, I said, "It's against the law to leave your animals in the car." She said, "I was only in the store for a few minutes."
I said that I saw her go in and just now coming out.
Please, please, tell them if they love their animals to please leave them at home!
Not too long ago there was a young man who left his little pug dog in the car and it died. So sad!
Animals can't speak for themselves, so we have to speak for them.
