That first guy is doing it wrong.  I have one of those tools and hitting the center of the window will just get you a rebounding tool.  Aim for about an inch in from the corner, and all you'll need to do is tap.

This woman looks like she escalates situations. She does something. Then she tells them. Then she argues, saying next time she'll call the cops, then argues with the manager, then gets fired, then goes to the press, then probably get five friends to picket the WalMart and eventually gets asked to leave, which turns into tasering and arrest, etc. etc.

mongbiohazard: Anastacya: Oh after RTFA, nevermind. She refused the instructions of her matter and flat-out told him that she would go over his head the next time that she saw a pet in a vehicle. Dumbass.

We should always be following orders, even when they are immoral or illegal. Everyone knows if you're just following orders you're exempt from responsibility for your actions or inaction, both morally and legally.


He told her to come to him with an issue. She said no, I am going to call the cops and not come to you. How is that exempting her? He never said to not say anything, he simply said to see him first. While I appreciate your lovely sarcastic attempt to say that we should all be drones, telling your boss that you aren't going to report things to him and instead go over his head is generally grounds for firing anywhere.

But hey, we should all be edgy and stand up to our bosses because fark authority, yea!

Because CPS already took away their (human) kids! Duh!!

I worked for a couple who was getting ready to divorce. To get back at her soon to be ex husband she locked his dog in her car on a hot day and killed it.

1. When I found out what she did I quit.
2. The dummy did it in her car and the dog did $2000.00 worth of damage to in inside trying to get out. Thanks to the insurance agent when he figured it out they didn't pay. In fact he reported her.

Terrible way to die. I can only hope she gets what's coming to her.

In AZ I see all the time and I'm shock to see it in the middle of summer here. So if you really love your dog LEAVE IT HOME. If not don't be surprised to find the windows broke out and your dog is now my dog and the police waiting for you.

I am owned by two rotten little ankle biters who aren't even technically mine.  I have a sunroof, so yeah it may be feasible if I leave that and the windows cracked, but I'd never take one or the both of them to Wal-Mart or anywhere else in my car where they do not have either constant airflow or AC, too darned hot.  One would probably croak due to age, the other one would probably get heatstroke at the least, even at 10-15 mins.  With temps close to 100 degrees and even with a white car, no way I'll do it.  Same thing when I had my Labs, they got to ride along in the breeze/AC and come out and sit on the sidewalk in the shade while I did my business or stayed home out of the monstrous heat.  Pity the ankle biters don't know the meaning of the word stay otherwise they'd get out a lot more in the summer for errand running. Gal shouldn't have lost her job, she did what was right.  Dogs do not have the capacity to sweat, so even a few minutes in extreme heat is bad news for them.  That, and wearing a fur coat year round.

Wall_of_Doodoo: Okay, as a dude who was raised in West Virginia, let me say this, 'the Walmart' is where things happen. Big city folk don't get this and to be honest, they don't get much.

I bet there's much more to this story. Was the dog there 5 minutes and some trifling' skank who recognized Cody's old lady's
Mazda and saw a chance to 'set shiat straight' cause Cody took her last monkey bar and Keystone before he went roofing for the day? Was the window actually closed or was it in a fixed position cause the knobs had been broken off and converted into a jury rigged on the go smoking pipe from which the dog got an equal share the whole time?

Don't over think what goes down at walmart, cause you either get it, or ya don't City boy.

If your boss is being a dumbass because he cares more for the corporation than the life of an innocent animal, hell yes, we should stand up to them.

"I was just following orders" or "I'm just doing my job" is never anything but a lame-ass excuse.

Besides, she wasn't even on the clock so she was outside the authority of the manager at that time.

Anastacya: If I am just running in to pick up a prescription or something I will roll the windows down and leave a small bowl of water for my dog. If it is insanely hot, I won't even bring her. She is getting old now and being blind she really enjoys sniffing out of the car window, so I like to bring her along before she is unable to get into the car anymore.

Leaving your dog while you go for an extended grocery trip, however, is just bad. Mmmkay? Kudos to the employee, but I see both sides of the issue.


A car (even with the windows rolled down) on a day which is only 70 degrees can quickly reach 100 degrees if parked in the sun. I'm talking less than 15 minutes. DO NOT leave your dog in a car if it's over 70 degrees outside. If you get delayed, and someone doesn't come along and get the dog out, you could come back to a dead or dying dog.

Your dog can't tell you if it's too hot for them. Take your dog to the McDonald's drive thru and taunt her with the smell of french fries. Or take her past a Krispy Kreme on a little sight-seeing drive. But please don't put your dog into cardiac arrest or heat stroke or whatever. Because someday you'll think it's just right and she'll think JEEZUS CHRIST IT'S HOTTER THAN HELL IN HERE!!1!

Sorry. I live in Arizona. I almost died hiking in the middle of Phoenix one day. And I've lived here all my life. You just slip up once in a while and it can kill you very quickly.

The worst story I heard of was a free-lance writer who was investigating  the story of someone who died of exposure pretty much in the middle of Phoenix. The writer ended up dying of exposure in the same spot.

Then there were the 4 Canadians (I think) who just knew where the Lost Dutchman's mine was. They found the last body in the Superstitions several months later.

Mike Chewbacca: Malacon: Mike Chewbacca: It was 95 outside, probably 120 in the car

A car can hit 120, in the sun, on an 80 degree day.

If it was 95, it was most likely substantially hotter.

No, the dog was only in the car for about 10 minutes. Using Snapper Carr's chart, that'd make it about 114. Still hot, and I would have definitely called the cops if the guy hadn't walked up, but not quite hot enough to break into the unit.


I wouldn't exactly call that chart super accurate, especially for short time frames.  It presumes that the interior starts at the same temperature as outside.  Maybe true, but if it's hot, there's a very good chance that the AC was running on the trip to the store, so interior temps are likely to start out much lower than ambient outdoor temps.  I'm also going to assume that the chart is based on a car sitting in the sun with the windows rolled up.  If it's cloudy outside and/or the car is parked in shade, that will make a significant difference in the short term.  And finally, if the windows happen to be open (even a little), excess heat can dissipate.

I'm not condoning leaving a dog or child in a car like this, and I'm not passing judgement as to whether the employee was right or wrong for her actions, but I'm pointing out that the chart could deviate pretty significantly from real world situations.

I know that one time I was on a road trip with my dog.  I had to make a stop at the store to run in for something and knew it was only going to be 5 to 10 minutes, tops.  I had the AC cranked up full blast for quite awhile before stopping, parked in the shade of a tree and cracked the window.  When I came out, there was commando Jane ready to lecture me about leaving my dog in a hot car.  Of course, I made sure to point out the blast of cool air coming from inside the car when I opened my door.  It was far cooler inside than out because I'd prepared for my quick sprint into the store.

Whatta f*cking coont. People suck, esp. those who leave their dogs in a hot car and asshole bosses who fire those who do the right thing. And if you defend these people, YOU suck too.

Good for this ex-Walmart worker. Hope she finds new employment soon.

I have a friend who has one of those cool valet features where he can leave the car running (AC and all) and the doggies just hang out in cool comfort.  If anyone tried to steal the car - it stalls the second you hit the brake to put it in gear.  Neat feature.

2013-07-10 10:27:23 PM  
In Ontario it is a crime to leave a dog in the vehicle with the windows up. The manager previously said there's nothing they could do which is a lie. The manager will be fired and the lady will have her job back in less than a week.

SlothB77: i am a dog owner.  I would trade a job at wal mart for saving the life of a pup left in a car, no doubt about it.

2013-07-10 10:33:39 PM  

GreenSun: I think the employee was wrong this time. The owner can't obviously bring the dog inside the store so he left an opening in the window for the dog. A truly bad owner who doesn't care about his dog wouldn't even think about rolling down the window. That employee is overly sensitive, most likely because she loves dogs a lot. It's not something you call the police for. There are far worse crimes happening around the city and a dog in a car with an open window isn't a reason to call them. No matter where you are, if it's hot in your city, then it's hot wherever you go, even if you leave that dog inside the house.


You know how I know you're either an idiot or a troll?

She said she told him her side of the story about the dog in the truck and that he told her to come to him with any problems in the future.

Cheney said she wouldn't do that.

Ok, I can see this in Miami, Los Angeles, San Diego, Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Austin, etc.  You've got to realize that this person is a dog lover and wanted to take the dog on an adventure.  And this adventure occurred in Canada.  That place is not similar to the heat index than somewhere like Las Vegas.
 
2013-07-10 10:39:54 PM  
It also depends on the type of dog as well.

I have a male 80lb Boxer and a female 120lb Neo Mastiff/Boxer Cross.  Come summer time and the Boxer grinds to a halt.  Because of his shorter face he can't breath as well, meaning he can't cool down as efficiently in the heat.  THe mastiff is fine with pretty much all temperatures.

That said I wouldn't leave them unattended in a car in the summer time.  That said, a week ago I had to stop off somewhere while I was driving them, I just left the car running with the AC cranked up, sure it doesn't make me Enviro-king of the year but at least they were safe for the 5 minutes I was gone.

And this winter when I was having battery problems with my car I would start it at home with battery charger, then drive to the store with them in it and then leave the motor running while I did my errands.*  I don't feel too too bad about it though because everyone around here leaves their car/truck running in the winter.  When the temperature reaches -40, plus the wind chill, you never know just how likely your car is to start again.

*/Don't even bother locking it because they're not really inclined to place nice with strangers.

THIS. And thank you for the PSA.  I don't take my tiny terrors out with me when it hits over around 65 or so (in car thermometer is awesome for external and internal temp, btw), but below about 45 and then they're shivering.  Ankle biting, short haired dogs.  But cute. Somehow, very cute. And no, I don't put them in sweaters in the winter, they just pee really, really fast and come back in quickly, have to check the pawpaws for frostbite in the super cold months, tho :)

Jokes about the holocaust aren't funny, my grandpa died at Auschwitz...... He fell out of the Guard tower.

FriarReb98:.. you can't just farking tell your manager you're going to go above their head for anything and expect to keep your job.

Above the managers head? The manager is not part of the chain of command between a citizen and law enforcement, even if that citizen is an employee.

So was she fired for doing that when she was off the clock? Or was she fired for being a total biatch to a manager?

IamKaiserSoze!!!: Hagbardr: Malacon: Mike Chewbacca: It was 95 outside, probably 120 in the car

A car can hit 120, in the sun, on an 80 degree day.

If it was 95, it was most likely substantially hotter.

I've used a station wagon parked in full sun on a hot day to sterilize bedding and clothes while fighting a bedbug infestation. It works well.

I''m not zactly sure that's the kind of story you share to impress people


I live in a townhouse. If the neighbors get bedbugs, I get them too. I was successful in killing them off but lost a lot of sleep for weeks. Those farkers just laugh at you if you use the pyrethrin sprays and bombs. I ended up using shiatloads of caulk, rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle, and Alpine Dust to get rid of them.

Yeah, that odd viewpoint jumped out at me too.

RealFarknMcCoy2: A car (even with the windows rolled down) on a day which is only 70 degrees can quickly reach 100 degrees if parked in the sun.


I'm gonna go ahead and call bullshiat on that.
