If I had my dog with me and needed to get something, provided the weather was acceptable the dog would stay in the locked car. Depending on where I was of course.Joey said:
Wait a minute. You're not suggesting that people actually <gasp!> WALK to the store, are you?Joey said:
I have only done it to get coffee, newspaper, dry cleaning. In all of those places, I have a good view of him at all times. We live in a neighborhood that is busy and people walk places. I am not one to take risks with my dog, but people know Theo around here, and there is sort of a culture of people taking their dogs everywhere. More typically, I will be walking with SU or someone else, and one of us will go in the store and the other will wait outside with him. Our dry cleaner lets you bring dogs inside.Trickster said:I rarely ever do. I have done in the past but ONLY if I can see them clearly at all times and I know I will be literally less than a minute. But I haven't done it in a long, long time and I avoid it.
