Merry Christmas to the Dog Locked the Car

Animals always find me. As my family likes to say, the S in Shubin stands for sucker. And it does.

I was in the TJ Maxx parking lot getting some last minute gifts and I noticed an adorable puppy in the car next to me. I called it, thoughtnt was adorable and went into the store. As I shopped I thought about the dog and how it was cold outside. As I walked back to my car I saw that the dog was still there. I wasn't going to leave and go home and not feel guilty that the dog was locked in the car. I called my mom and she said you can wait but I don't know what you can do.

Thank goodness for my smart iPhone! I googled what to do if you saw a fog locked in the car. It mostly showed me answers for dogs in cars during the summer. I decided to search for the non emergency police. I calle and they dispatched an officer who showed up right away.

He watched the puppy, who we seemed to have woken up from a nap. He felt the engine and said it did still feel warm. But since it wasn't hot out and the dog didn't seem to be in distress, there wasn't really anything he could do but check back later. I felt defeated, but kindly thanked the officer and shook his hand. I wanted to see animal justice served, but I guess you don't always get what you want!
