Could be Hubby doesn't like the dog?


Please don't ever leave an animal unattended in your car! This isn't the first time I've read about something like this happening. If you love your animals, leave them home if you can't be with them at all times. This is a tragedy that could have been avoided.


The dog is smarter than the owners. Who the heck leaves their keys in a truck in Hartford? I wouldn't leave the keys in my vehicle if I was filling up at self serve in Hartford.
