I have a dog and I love it to death. However sometimes you can literally love your pet to death in the hot Summer months.

We don't hear a lot about this in the news, but each year pets die by the hundreds when left in a vehicle on a hot Summer day while their owners run a quick errand. It only takes a few minutes for a pet to be overcome by heat. Some days you just need to go take care of the errands by yourself and leave Fido home with a big bowl of water, the fan or AC running and let him be safe. Your pets will be happy to see you when you get home.
