    So if I see a car that has a pet inside when the weather is hot, does that mean I have to call 911?

    Is that Florida Man in the upper right? Despite the name, I never imagined him as so heroic.

    Also, I didn’t realize Castaño was trans, so that’s pretty cool to find out.

    Does that Florida law also work for a trapped, overheating young child? It had better!

    In California, if you break into a car to rescue a child or pet from overheating, you cannot be sued for damages to the vehicle. I have carried a pocket knife with a glass breaker spike on it ever since I worked at Starbucks for a year. Many times women would drive up with a minivan full of kids, and we would insist that they had to leave the main door open. We didn’t have a drive up, but we did have lots of windows for surveillance of said minivans.

    Upon Arriving Home, a husband was met at the door by his sobbing wife. Tearfully she explained, “It’s the pharmacist. He insulted me terribly this morning on the phone.”

    Immediately the husband drove downtown to confront the pharmacist and demand an apology. Before he could say more than a few words, the druggist told him,

    “Now, just a minute, please listen to my side of it. This morning my alarm failed to go off, so I was late getting up. I went without breakfast and hurried out to the car, just to realize that I locked the house with both house and car keys inside. I had to break a window to get my keys. Then, driving a little too fast, I got a speeding ticket. Later, about three blocks from the store, I had a flat tire.

    When I got to the store there was a bunch of people waiting for me to open up. I opened and started waiting on these people, and all the time the darn phone was ringing off the hook."

    He continued, "Then I had to break a roll of nickels against the cash register drawer to make change, and they spilled all over the floor. I got down on my hands and knees to pick up the nickels; the phone was still ringing. When I came up I cracked my head on the open cash drawer, which made me stagger back against a showcase with a bunch of perfume bottles on it…all of them hit the floor and broke.

    Meanwhile, the phone is still ringing with no let up, and I finally got to answer it.

    It was your wife. She wanted to know how to use a rectal thermometer…and, honest mister, all I did was tell her!

    Until next time.

    So… in order to fight prejudices, you can “borrow” a human??? An unfortunate choice of word…

    “But officer, I was saving his pet. Yes, that’s it, I needed to dismantle his dash board and remove the sound system so I could save the pet and stuff.”

    My new avatar is a painting that my very talented granddaughter and I painted together simultaneously on the same canvas! Kind of a painting duet.It was a very memorable experience! Back in Kentucky, she does animal portraits in watercolor and helps fund her college expenses!No, I’m not gonna show pictures of my grandkids! ;o)

    There should be a law where you can break into a car to stop a child from over eating. We have way too much obesity in the US

    It should be legal everywhere to break into a hot car to rescue a dog.

    On the Florida law, there always will be a Karen that abuses it. Our friends have a Springer Spaniel and a Toyota Sienna van. They were parked in the shade, all windows completely down, bowl of water on the floor. A Karen called the cops and they went into the restaurant located my friends and made them leave. PS the weather was sunny and 77 degrees. The policeman apologized to them explaining he was stuck by the law, and he realized the dog was in no danger.

    No matter where i was, if an animal looks like it is in need i would smash a window to save the animal,then if needed i would pa y for a new window. I once had a Toy Poodle and we went into a place to eat and it was hot I turned the A/C on in the car,locked it then used my wifes key to unlock the door when we got done.

    The only time I ever took any of my animals in the car was for trips to the vet. Only my last dog ever gave me any problems. She always wanted to drive and would climb into my lap, put her front paws on the wheel and her hind legs by the gas pedal. Trying to wrestle a 100lb dog off your lap is not fun, and she could get out of any restraint i ever put her in.

    I’m kind of thinking that legal, or not, I’d break into a car to rescue a pet, regardless of where I happened to be.
