    Good call re the rawhide chew.
    I used to keep a pigs ear in the glovebox for emergency use.

    This car was in an office carpark, hardly a farm. The dog was obviously trained to stay on the ute but was clearly uncomfortable in the sun. If you leave your dog unattended in the sun for 6 hours in the carpark of the department that employs ranger and Domestic Animal Services customer service staff amongst others, you are going to have to expect people complaining. And if they want to treat their dog like a farm dog, they should move to a farm! I am a bit allergic to lazy or negligent dog owners in the city referring to how farm dogs are treated to justify themselves. I hear it all the time.

    As for feeding the dog, no I would not be impressed if some stranger fed my dog. However if I was forced to leave my dog on a ute in a carpark for 6 hours straight without being able to check up on her, I would be very grateful for any distraction and interaction she got, even if it meant people feeding her crap.

    I was responding to Di's post. Posted at the same time as you.

    And didn't mean to sound so defensive, Di. But I really have heard the farm dog excuse way too often here. The dog was ok, it wasn't a case of serious abuse or anything, but it was a sad way to treat a dog nevertheless.

    The point I was making was the dog had choices. The farm dog thing is not an excuse. How do you KNOW that the dog was trained to stay there?
    Here They can choose to stay on the back or under the ute for shade if the ute could not be parked under a convenient tree. I have seen them want to be in the back of the ute even when parked at the house and not going to shade or the sheds. It is if their whole life is wanting to be where the ute is and not wanting to miss the chance of going off with it.

    AND yep, have seen them choosing to lie in the sun on a very hot day. Also seen them asleep in the frost and sleeping in the rain when there is oodles of shelter.

    The other day it was 43 degrees here. I looked out my window to see Pretty lying in the full sun. I thought she was mad as one of the others was in one of the clam shell pools, one in a hole dug in the shade and the other just on the grass in the shade.

    Which is why a caring owner should make sure they park the ute in the shade at least!

    And the farm dog thing is not an excuse if you have a farm dog. You know, that lives on a farm and gets to do the things that farm dogs do, like work or run around on the farm. This is the suburbs. Where some dogs get to put up with the boring bits of the farm dog life but never get the good bits. That's what I mean by "an excuse". I have no beef with how farmers treat their dogs at all. But there is usually some balance there. Too many dogs in the suburbs are so bored out of their minds all the time...

    I do agree though that I would not personally do what this person did.

    My last blue heeler (RIP) was mostly a pet but was taken in the ute to sometimes help move the cattle.
    Every morning and anytime my husband was home during the day then go off resulted in Shadow crying and whimpering that he was left behind.
    You only had to say the word ute to him and he would be twisting himself inside out with joy as he knew then he would be going.

    It could very well have been the same with this dog. Who knows?
