What might be considered a quick trip into a store can inadvertently turn into 15 minutes, long enough for an animal to suffer. Darker colored and flat faced dogs, such a Pekingese, are more susceptible to heat stroke or dehydration, both of which can be fatal. Do your pet a favor — instead of bringing them with you on an errand, leave them at home and bring them back a special treat!
