I do, too. The only way my dog would be "left in the car" would be if I was pumping gas, paying at the pump, and standing right next to the car the entire time with my concealed handgun. This guy was a fool, trusting his dog to "the kindness of criminals".
And even if the crooks had "done the right thing", his dog would quite possibly be lost or killed in traffic. Either way the owner was an idiot.
