I am all for helping an animal in distress but we need to be careful how we determine distress and how long a dog is kept waiting. I dropped a friend off at a doctor office appt. I was told what time to come back. I sat in the parking lot for awhile wondering where she was, Chauncey was in the back seat and I had the windows partly up and the sun roof partly open as I ran into the office to see how long she would be. I wasn't in the reception room 1 minute when I could see from the window someone standing next to my car and I was nervous as I am always afraid someone will try to steal him, though he is extremely protective in the car and does a bark and growl when someone comes up to it. Anyway my friend was sitting there, she says she didn't see us, since I was in the first space right outside the door, I think she forgot she was in my car and looking for a different car. I did get the questioning when I went out and I was gone from my car and never out of sight of it for maybe 1 min. maximum. I told the lady, I have everything under control and he wasn't in the car alone more then 1 min. She was snippy and mumbling under her breath as she walked away. I assure you all NO WAY would I have left Chauncey and not been out of view of him. I had no intention to even get out of the car, I was simply giving someone a ride. If I am going somewhere where I am shopping or getting out of the car he is left home or with his Poppa in the car. He is my most cherished love and I plan on many years together. I would be confident to bet it wasn't even a full minute. I was up the stairs in the door and there was my friend and I told her were right outside, and back out we went.
