I've encountered some sad stories that are very recent. These stories are about dogs being left in hot cars and it causing their deaths. It's not to be blamed on bad owners, but bad partners. By partners, I mean their partners in fighting crime. Police officers have been leaving their dogs in their cars. In the past month there have been 3 cases reported of K-9 dogs being left in a hot police car and dying. There have been reports in Mississippi, Oklahoma, and most recently in Ohio.
