Reminder - Don't leave your pooch in the car

With summer in full swing and temperatures rising, we wanted to remind everyone not to leave a pooch or any animal in the car. Give them plenty of water and watch for overheating. Have you ever heard of giving a dog a frozen meatball to cool them off in the summer? I haven't tried that. At any rate, cars get hot very quickly in the heat. Here is a heartbreaking story about dogs who perished recently after being left in a car. There is no excuse for this...

ARNOLD, Mo. -- An investigation continues following the deaths of seven St. Louis-area show dogs. Jefferson County authorities were called Tuesday to a home in Arnold. Sheriff Glenn Boyer says the 24-year-old custodian of the dogs had returned home from a show in Iowa and planned to put the dogs in kennels in the garage.

But because of the heat, she decided to leave the dogs in portable kennels in a van. She says she placed six electric fans in the van, left a door open, and left windows partially open.

The custodian says she checked on the dogs at 4:05 a.m. and they appeared fine. But when she checked again at 6:30 a.m. they were in distress. She drove the dogs to a veterinarian.
The cause of death has not been determined. The dogs had different owners. An eighth dog survived.
