Don't leave dogs in cars for long

To most people Haines may seem breezy and cool, but to dogs left in cars it is not. It only takes intermittent sun to cause a car to get to an unlivable temperature, even with the windows cracked open. I only bring this up because I have seen dogs here left in hot cars for long periods of time with no water or relief. I know you love your dogs. Please love them enough to leave them in a cool place with lots of water when you go places, and if your dog is in the car, please make sure you limit his time parked there alone to about 10 minutes. Thank you.
