Hot dogs are a ubiquitous part of summer, as common on the grill as burgers and steaks. But hot dogs of the true canine variety are absolutely, unequivocally a bad idea.
So many of us are busy or tired and hot this summer, and we may be tempted: "I'll just be a minute," "I'll crack the window, there's a breeze." DON'T do it!
Already in our area several dogs have had to be rescued from locked cars. One even died. How have we not absorbed this message yet?!! In the summer, temperatures in a car, regardless of a slightly open window, quickly rise to broiling. No animal should be left to bake.
Tell friends, neighbours, co-workers. Just say "NO!" to hot dogs!
