As I often do, I write about things I see or experience as a way of not only sharing with you the reader, but also to heighten your awareness of things going on around you.

90 degrees. That’s how hot it was today when I left my office for lunch. I parked in the lot of my favorite eatery and as I walked in, I saw a group of people staring at a full size pick up truck with a camper shell on the bed. Then I heard it. Bark, bark, bark. Yep, some fool left his dog in the truck while he went inside.
I quickly checked with everyone in the crowd and someone (actually a few) had already alerted the police and they were on their way. So, I became one of the observers as the police arrived and the man walked out of the store, seemingly amazed about all the ruckus around his vehicle. What amazed me the most was that no one in the group was willing to leave until that dog was safe. You go pet lovers!
