Dogs in Hot Cars


The warm weather has arrived and I know some people like taking their dogs out for a ride on a warm day and leave them in the car with the window cracked while you go shopping. This is Huge “No No”! Please leave your pet at home!

Do you know it just takes a minute on a 78-degree day, the temperature inside a parked car can soar to between 100  to 120 degrees in just minutes, and on a 90-degree day, the interior temperature can reach as high as 160 degrees in less than 10 minutes. 

Your pet can suffer brain damage or a heat stroke and die within 15 minutes or less.

Leaving a dog in a parked car with the windows cracked is a death trap for a dog because they overheat, sweat, excessive thirst, pant heavily, etc. Here is more information at this link http://www.peta.org/issues/companion-animals/dog-hot-car.aspx

Children with paws don’t deserve to die because the pet parent is stupid and cruel.

I take this matter very seriously and when I am out and about do shopping I am always on the look out for animals left in cars. I do not hesitate to call the police and report this very serious crime and yes this is a “Crime”. Pet owners can be charged with cruelty and receive a hefty fine.  The police will come without hesitating because they take it very seriously too. In the event you do make a call to the police, you have to stay on the scene until the matter has been resolved.

We all need to take action to protect the animals, so please do your part in helping to protect and prevent dogs being left in hot cars. Be pro active make the call if you need to and save a life! Here is a link for a flyer you can print out and keep in your car to hand out when necessary. http://www.aspca.org/Blog/~/media/files/pet-care/pets-in-hot-cars.pdf

I have flyers in my car and I am ready to start handing them out.

Be responsible, Be the voice for the animals, Be protective and Be pro active!

The Fear Factor


This is story is not about some t.v. reality show its about life and living with fear.

So many of people live in fear everyday but some maybe ashamed to say so…and where does the fear come from. It comes directly from the person and your subconscious creates it. Sometimes it wreaks havoc on a person’s life from the individual’s mind.  For example you are in an elevator and you start feeling sick for whatever the reason is, you may feel faint and the feeling of being alone kicks in an anxiety attack which you may have never felt before. So next time your going to take the elevator you might opt for the stairs, this is your subconscious reminding you that last time you had a problem and you might feel all weird and stuff but hate to tell you this is Anxiety! This is just another word for FEAR! So don’t let your subconscious take you for a ride. You be in control of YOU!

I just learned last week that the a.m. news shows and the news in general plays a huge role in the fear factor. Why you ask? Because the news networks over exaggerate what’s really going on in the world and they just want their listeners sitting on the edge of their seats. It’s almost like a horror film and sometimes it is because of the graphic content and pictures they use and topics that media discusses on the news cast. I think the news should have a rating such as a movie rating.  Then at least people can make a choice whether to listen or not! We all listen to the news whether it be on t.v. or on the radio and all the news we listen to is all bad news. The media never reports good news except when it someone reaches their 100th birthday. Why is that? These news journalists get paid an awful lot of money to put Americans in a state of panic. This is just another way to feed the fear. We need to keep our minds in check with reality. Why can’t we have a news network that provides Happy News?

I went on a search on the internet and there are 313,000 topics related to Fear and the News. There have been plenty of studies done on this very topic by sociologists and from what I have read the media bases its content on culture.

Every person has a fear and we should all face our fears with challenge. Challenge yourself and win.

Take Control of YOU!
