ALLENTOWN, Pa., July 14 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania woman who forgot her dog in her hot car after running an errand said the Labrador honked the car horn twice to draw her attention.
Donna Gardner of Upper Macungie Township said she forgot the 11-year-old dog, Max, was in the car when she returned home from running errands and went inside the house, WFMZ-TV, Allentown, Pa., reported.
"I came in and started cleaning and about an hour later I heard a horn blow," Gardner said.
Gardner said she did not see anyone in the car so she returned to the house then heard the horn sound a second time. She said the dog was sitting in the driver's seat when she came back outside.
Gardner said Max was checked out by a vet, who said the canine was weak but otherwise unharmed by his ordeal.
Please check twice before you leave your car, that you remember to take your children and your companion animals!!! ESPECIALLY in the hot summer weather were the temperature in a car can rise very fast, and can be fatal.
