    Funnily enough I read this and thought of my Mums staffy pup years ago and then saw the post about someone elses. My Mums pup in 10 minutes chewed every object that protruded... Gearstick, brake lever, four window winders, cigarette lighter etc etc... Brand new car.

    I leave my dog in the car all the time, but I'm VERY careful about the heat. If it's much over 20 degrees I won't leave my dog in the car for more than a few short minutes(over 25 and I simply won't leave the dog there unless I have someone to stay with him who can turn on the aircon if needed). I never leave food or water. The longest i've ever left my dog in the car was during winter I got caught up shopping for a new fishing rod(Gancraft melt was the purchase for Sean's interest) and left him there for probably close to 1 1/2 hours. Most times though I wouldn't leave him in the car for more than 10 or 20 minutes

    I once left a previous dog tied to a post outside a shop for a few minutes....all the kids were petting her and she was lapping it up. As I came out of the shop I heard a lady in a car say, "oh look, isn't she friendly"....and opens her car door to let her own dog out to say hello......whereupon my dog bares her teeth and lunges at this little fluffy thing, which turns tail and runs for it's life! I left Tara in the car this morning when I stopped at a roadhouse for a snack, windows down about 8 inches, and it was quite cold. I was only gone a few minutes......I never leave her any longer than that if I can help it.....she looks out the window the whole time, waiting for me to come back, and it feel bad.

    Dogs die in cars only because of heat exhaustion. I can't see any other situation where your dog would be at risk by being left in the car?
