Dogs in hot sun

Can people please please remember its not just in cars that dogs overheat. If you must take them out in the heat of the day and plan to foolishly leave them outside supermarkets etc. for more than a few moments make sure they are secured in the shade out of the sun or can at least reach shade if they wish to otherwise they very quickly get uncomfortable and distressed. Today a friend witnessed a terrier tethered outside Tesco's for at least 30 minutes and goodness knows how long it had been there before this. It was tied to the iron fence in the direct sun with absolutely nowhere to shade and despite two tannoy attempts by Tesco staff to locate the very stupid irresponsible owner he was in no hurry to move his dog. Apparantly the dog progressed from panting & barking intermittantly to laying down exhausted - why are some dog owners so thoughtless and irresponsible?

Terriers ALWAYS appear 'distressed' when tied-up anywhere regardless of the weather.

Any person harming a dog (or any other animal for that matter), should be hung drawn and quartered, and that includes idiot policemen who leave their dogs to die in closed vans.

Invisible man - your first post was just stupid, the second was a weird response to the topic. Yes, I'm sure you are big and brave on this forum 'invisible man'.
Dogs attack people in response to cruelty. I pity you that you are so scared of them because you are really missing out.
I pity your grandchildren even more though.

not from around here - I would hope normal responsible people can recognise if a dog is tethered in direct sun with no shelter irrespective of why it is barking!
Invisible man - Your comment was stupid and irrelevant, nobody would condone a child getting bitten least of all a dog owner. As a parent or grandparent you have a massive responsility to the child in your care to never put them in danger, by teaching children to properly understand and respect the needs of all animals they may potentially encounter from a very early age and by being vigilant yourself most such accidents can be avoided. I dont think I would feel confident to leave my child or dog in your care with your atttude.
