The poor dog. I get annoyed at the ignorance of people who think it's OK to leave their dog (or kids) in cars, but I'm pretty damned sure this person knew not to ever do that. Absolutely unbelievable is all I can say.
RICHMOND, Virginia - An executive for an anti-animal cruelty group says her 16-year-old blind and deaf dog died after she accidentally left him in her hot car for four hours.
Robin Starr, the CEO of the Richmond Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, says she didn't realize "Louie" was in the car until noon. Starr's husband, Ed, told the Richmond Times-Dispatch he put the dog in her car as she got ready for work Aug. 19. She often took the dog to work with her.
Robin Starr took the dog to two clinics, but he died of kidney failure.
This infuriates me...I read the story on the spca of virginia's website and they are blaming the news for giving the story a negative light and totally backing up the CEO. One question...does she not check to make sure her dog has fresh water and is okay before she leaves for work? I never leave the house without not only checking these things out, but I have to give my baby a big kiss and tell her that I love her. I really hope the spca does the right thing with this...they are going to lose a lot of donations if they don't force her to resign.
