That's so sad. It's one of those things that people think would never happen to them. So stupid.

Its pretty sad to see and hear this constantly... considering when its been pretty much widespread accross the media on not to do this to the animal and the consequences of doing this. So pretty much its just arrogance on the owners part and should not be allowed to have animals.... they need to be B'tchd out and be fined big time!!!! Eiksaa did you call security or animal services or the police on these people????

No I didn't. To be honest I wasn't sure if I can. Can I? It wasn't hot out there and I'm not sure what the laws are around this. Great idea, I'm going to get informed about laws in California around this so I'm better equipped to take action next time. I did make a big fuss about it around the car. The brunch place has huge glass windows so I know the family saw me. I couldn't tell who they were because a couple of families were staring at me pointing at the car and saying, "poor doggie" over and over.

So let me ask you guys a question about something I struggle with often. Bailey and I live alone in North Carolina and we often make the 7 hour drive back home to Virginia to visit our family. Of course, it's just Bailey and I in the car during these road trips. Since it's such a long drive, usually I need to stop at least once to get gas, food and use the rest room. If I'm at a fast food place and need to run in and use the rest room I always struggle with what to do with Bailey. He is 12+ pounds so he's not easy to sneak in inside a bag. I've tried to do this once and got called out on it. A couple of times, I've had to leave him in the car while I quickly run inside to the rest room and run back out as fast as I can - of course NOT in hot weather and I always make sure I put blankets and stuff around the windows so him and his car seat are not easily seen from outside the car. But this SCARES me to death and I absolutely hate doing it but don't see any other option. What do you guys think of this? Any ideas??? Hopefully you don't think that I'm a horrible cruel mom for doing this

There was one time when I realized after getting gas that I needed to pay inside. I asked the person getting gas next to me if he could watch my dog for a minute (and then I made sure he saw me glancing at his license plate, rude but better safe than sorry).

I mean, sometimes you just need to do it. It's not the same as leaving a dog in the car while you eat leisurely brunch. You're not cruel at all.

I agree... there is a difference! as long as you still have a view of your dog and you are not long....

You shouldn't feel bad! This is totally different! I do have an idea though, you could probably get away with sneaking him into a rest stop bathroom since they aren't typically monitored! That way you can also take Bailey to go potty and a nice little walk to stretch both your legs!
