Weird story, and a reminder, out of Atlanta
I was watching the news here just a few minutes ago and WSBTV ran a story about a dog being stolen out of a Wal Mart parking lot. It's not on the web site yet, but if I find it, I will post it.
Evidently, a woman ran into a Cobb Co. Wal Mart for "just a couple things" and had her car broken in to and her "prize winning Shorkie" (is there such a thing?) stolen. She said she left the window cracked and that her sister was parked 2 stalls down.
Now, I totally understand this woman being upset that her dog is missing. But WHY would you leave your dog unintended in nearly 100 degree weather? And why would your sister not notice someone breaking in to your car?
BTW, the woman is upset because while the police are reviewing security footage, the spokesman said if a police officer had seen the dog in the car she would have been charged with animal cruelty. She kept saying "that's ridiculous!"
I just don't get some people.
Don't get your knickers in a knot. Nothing is solved and it just makes you walk funny.

No, there got to be more to the story she is not saying...like you said why didn't the sister see someone braking into her car.
Shorkie is a mix dog I think it's a s**t-zu (?spell) and yorkie. She said prize winning?
I wonder if the person that took the doggie felt they were rescuing the dog from an irresponsible owner.

i think that the people who leave thear pet in the car should have thear car broken into and the pet stolen its just wrong to leave a pet alone
and my money is on the sister as the culprit
Don't say I love you unless you mean it, but if you do say it a lot. People forget.

It was probably a dog lover trying to save the dog for leaving him there? Now THAT'S a story!
Uhhh Prize winning?

For one if she was just popping in for a few things why bring the dog with her knowing she was just going to leave him in a hot car? why not just leave him at home where it is more comfertable for him?
Also like other's have mentioned how come her sister or anyone else for that matter didn't see this happening and try to stop the theif?
I find it hard to believe that the carpark was completley empty.
To be honest if she thinks its ok to leave a dog in a red hot car then she didn't deserve him anyway and I hope he is now with a more responsible owner.

Yep, I saw this on the news too yesterday. I also live in GA. When I heard about it - my comment too was she left the dog in the car on the hottest day of the year!!! If she really cared about it, she would have had her sister in the car with the dog and have the AC on! Period! Some people can be so dumb.
There was someone last year that had their dog in the car at Ingles. I went in right away and contacted the store manager. They made an announcement over the intercom and called the cops. She was in so much trouble, but when she was confronted with all this she did nothing but complain. She stated she was only going in for a minute, yet she had her three kids with her in the store. One child was about 14-15 years old.

I saw this on the news today also, I was shocked that someone would leave their dog in a car, in 100 degree weather.
I agree with the poster who said it was probably someone worried about the well being of the dogs in the heat.
I just got back from vacation driving from Georgia to Michigan and Sophie Kate went along with us. We NEVER left her in the car when we stopped for gas, or food. One of us went in while the other walked her or stayed in the car with the A/C on.
I don't even like to take her outside when its really hot, I carry her over the pavement to the grass because I am afraid her little feet will get burnt (I know it's ridicules, she is a little pampered).
