It is awful. But am surprised she had been left in the truck. It was so hot there on Friday, it could have been a fatallity instead   neither outcome is good.  Let's hope she gets home.  I have to say, there was plenty of water and pools about for the dogs, but it still upsets me not seeing people providing it for their own. To assume the venue will provide is not good enough.  Also at £2.50 a bottle, don't think many people brought it.  Sorry for rant.
You're always there when I need you. Devoted, loving and true.
No one could wish for anything more, Than a faithful friend like you

I agree with you and obviously many others also.  The details have been updated to clarify that the vehicle was air conditioned for the dogs.

I wish I lived in an environment where I felt comfortable to leave the dogs in my car whilst paying for fuel, even 30 metres away in full view, but I donít. Iíve got friends who live in remote villages in Scotland who leave their dog in the car whilst doing a weekly shop, they were shocked when I said I wouldnít do that.
I canít imagine what having a dog stolen must feel like. Ivy still hasnít been found, I hope all the stolen dogs get home: I donít have suitable vocabulary for dog thieves.

I feel just as you do John but I also worry when I am out with them, particularly with my little boy who is just 16 weeks old. When he was about 9 weeks old and I was still carrying him everywhere, I was approached by two teenagers, one on a bike.  They just wanted to know about him but I was terrified they would snatch him.  It is a sad reflection on our society that I should feel like that.  I also worry if I see people in vans watching me as I take the dogs home.  When i do leave them home alone,  I am anxious all the time until I am home.  I can honestly say my dogs are the most valuable Ďthingsí in my home, everything else can be replaced.

This is so sad, I hope they get her home soon! I read here that he just left her for 20mins to drop off a trophy he'd won last year in a working test. He also left her in a boot crate with his other cocker, Junior, who didn't get taken but must have been absolutely terrified by it.

Stories like this really worry me and like John, I don't even feel comfortable leaving my Ivy for 5 mins whilst I pay for fuel.

Vixen - I would have been cautious about that too, even though it was probably completely harmless. I had a teen girl ask to take a photo of Ivy when she was 14wks and I said no. Felt like a right grumpy you know what at the time, but you just don't know these days.

What a sad time we're living in.

Praying for her safe return!!

Morning!
I feel exactly the same, I used to leave Peanut & Elsa at home alone for an hour a week whilst I did a food shop. Iíd be anxious all the time resulting in speeding and whizzing around food aisles like a nutter! Iím very aware of vans whilst walking too, I cross roads to avoid ones that I donít know.
I live in a rural village and used to always walk locally but I donít feel comfy having a set routine now so drive to different fields and parks.
Iíve trained an emergency recall and they are both good at it BUT it wouldnít work if either was grabbed/lifted up. This is the problem with smaller dogs, theyíre easy to lift. I totally understand you feeling more vulnerable with a pup Vixen. Sophie, I wouldnít have allowed the photo either and would have felt like a grump too!

I check Ivyís page every time Iím online hoping to see that sheís found. I hope she gets home soon.

I read something which brought me to tears last week regarding a cocker spaniel - I felt it was to distressing to post, so deleted the link.

There are some truly wicked people out there - animals are more decent than them.

I hope she is found soon. 

I have been very diligent with Ollie - he loved going shopping with me and has always loved the car, this time of year he just can't go out...but my late cousin had her dog go missing many years ago - there was a spate of dog thefts in Cheshire and it has always stayed with me.
Cocker kisses and cuddles just make my day!
