I'm paranoid about leaving my dog in the car for too long, mostly because of Dog Nazi's like you described. If I had my dog with me on vacation, I wouldn't have done anything that caused it to be locked in the car for two hours. The dog probably would have been fine during those two hours (as evident by the fact you didn't start a thread about another dead dog) and if I saw someone else doing it, I probably wouldn't have given it a second thought.
The sad fact is that there are people who would do that exact same thing on a 90 degree day, so it's not the worst thing in the world that there are people worried about the welfare of an innocent animal. Some just take it too far because they don't know what the eff they are talking about.
Your dog is fine, don't let it ruin the rest of your vacation.
edit: just reread it and saw that it was an SUV. That's even less bad than what I originally thought.

A real dog Nazi would have shot a mixed breed on sight.
Or maybe I could have taken her and dropped her off at a movie.
Amazingly, she survived, and is not showing signs of PTSD.
wait, is that wrong?
If you've spent any time this spring in the Mid-Atlantic, you'd realize that 55 degrees would actually be quite nice. The weather has been atrocious. It's all relative.
Im ready for aa 5th of vodica to end my feels.
I see no problem with this. I couldn't do it without at least one check back to make sure everything was ok, especially in bumfuck VA, but temp and boredom wise, this is a nonissue.
Not an option as she can be people aggressive towards strangers who approach her.
I don't see a problem. I would think that most of the negative replies are from people who either don't have a dog or think their dogs are more than just a dog. I bet your dog was loving life sleeping in the back of your car with the cool fresh air blowing through. Remember folks, dogs have no sense of time.
Random, but as I was walking my dog this morning, some guy about 50 yards away kind of bellowed to me "Did you pick it up??"
I barely heard him, and thoguht maybe he was talkign to someone else, so just ignored him. So then he like yells "HEY- PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG" .
At this point I'm pissed off because I pick up after my dog 100% of the time, and fuck him for yelling at strangers anyway. So I yell back "ARE YOU TALKING TO ME? HE HASNT EVEN GONE YET ASSHOLE, and I ALWAYS PICK UP (pull baggie out of jacket pocket and wave it at him).
At this point his tone changed "Thanks man! " like almost cheery. I couldnt tell what the deal was, he may have been an employee of Einstein HS (where I walk my dog), or just a passerby but his preachiness and emre assumption that I would be the kind of prick not to pick up after my dog really pissed me off this morning.
the world would be a better place if there were fewer people who felt like they needed to teach other people a lesson.
Phatboy if you had any balls I'd meet you at the AFA Boxing gym and have Coach Weichers put some gloves on us.
RIght, dogs have immediate needs, if they are met they are happy. If the dog didn't have to relief itself, was fed recently, and been allowed to drink, it probably slept the entire time, or occasionally woke up and barked at nearby strangers - in other words, exactly what it would have been doing any other time. When you got back, the dog was probably very happy to see you, but the reaction would be the same if you had been gone five minutes or 120.
Here's a pic of the abused canine.

It appears you are the one being abused.... by owning a bubble tv with a/v cables run to the front.
this is an amusing trend on this board. I couldn't believe when someone ragged on someone's CARPET the other day. Epic posting.
Blue is the color of sadness. You should replace that blue beanbag chair/bed with something that will make him more cheery.
Or at least buy him a good David McCullough book so he can get the revolutionary war era history fix he desperately needs
Or maybe I should just send her to the kennel where all dogs are happy all of the time.
nice looking dog. i had one just like it growing up. he was the best. huge. 100 lbs in his prime. huge head.
Wouldn't YOU actually be considered the Dog Nazi in this case (by the note writer) given your "abuse" of said animal?
Yeah, I pointed this out a week or two ago. Always amusing. I remember during the Suque Olympics being terrified that there'd be something in the background of my (GOLD MEDAL WINNING!) dog trick video.

This could all be settled quickly if we just get Mark Wahlberg to ask the dog what she thinks.
