    Sad story for sure.

    That said, common sense was clearly lacking. 6 hours is an awfully long time not to check on your partner in a closed vehicle. It's beyond sad that the dog tried to escape his situation and suffered needlessly. While I feel for the handler-I feel more so for the dog.

    I am shocked at how often this happens with police dogs.

    I've been following this story most of the day.

    I think the officer forgot the dog was in his patrol vehicle. We have had near record high temps for weeks and this is a clear case of, "I forgot about the dog".

    We have had adults forget they had infants in baby cars seats in the backs seats and had the children die of heat stress.

    Pure stupid!

    I don't remember reading 6 hours locked in the car? The dog was 6 years old. It was still dumb and he should have known better.

    Years ago a MA police dog was left in the cruiser with the AC on while the officer attended court. The cruiser was running (to keep the AC going). This is normal practice for MA from what I am told. However, the AC unit failed and the dog died. The officer ran out of court ever 15 or 20 minutes to check the dog. But as we know it doesn't take long when it's hot.

    What I don't get is with all the nice dog boxes out there how come they have not purchased one? Why haven't dog boxes cought on with the law?
