During hot days, if you are a dog owner, the most important thing you can do is not leave your dog in a car.
If you absolutely have to, the least you can do is leave the air con on, and crack open the window. If you don't do this, there's a certain word to describe you: dickhead.
A dog was recently left with no water and no air in an overheated car in Spain. Police spotted the distressed dog and decided to use a tool to smash the car's window to free the canine from the sweat box.
Once the window is smashed, the dog is eager to get out of the car. Panting heavily, gasping for air, he walks straight to the shade.
Still panting, eventually police bring him some water. He quickly laps up the much-needed water, before looking around in shock.
This is awful to see.
