Stuffie Abuse!

Now, everyone knows or SHOULD, not to leave our dearly beloved Canine friends in cars, during the Summer, even with the windows down, as the sweltering heat can be fatal & all too frequently is.
Only last month, two Nottinghamshire Police dogs, tragically died that way, due to their handlers neglect!
That incident shocked Mother & I to the core - see HERE for more details!

But, I ask - what about car Stuffies???
Today, Mother showed me this worrying photograph taken yesterday, of these poor guys sitting in bright sunshine in a hot, air-tight vehicle...
I am very concerned for their well being!
They will suffocate!
Their coloured coats will fade, their stuffing disintegrate in the car furnace.

Alright, Mothers last car did have a Stuffie mascot.
He, given to her by Miss Shy, when she first acquired shiny red VW 'Scarlet'
But, Poodle Snowy, lived, like he does now indoors except, when his @ map reading skills were required, as seen here on their very last adventure together...
In my old bear eyes, all pet abuse, real or of the stuffed variety should not be allowed!
Maybe, I should start my own road side campaign...Any fellow supporters???
Hugs,

They wer reverse navigaytors. They sit thare in cayse the driver gets lost- then they can gide him bak home.

I sit up frunt an navigayte but I hav notist that my noze is faydin in the sunshine so Mummy sez she is goin to start puttin sunblok on it!!!

She duzz mayke me a hat owt ov a hanky to keep the sun off sumtimes.

I don't offen stay in the car I travel wiv Mummy in her bag or daddy in his pokkit. Dilly stays behind an gards the car.

She is kwite good at it. Sumtimes we come bak an neerly all the uther cars hav gon but ours is still thare.

The heet issent too mutch for her, bein a reptilian. But sumtimes she spends sum time in the fridge wen we get bak. She rekkons that the lite STAYS ON wen yu shut the dor.

Monday Greetings Woodstock,
I passed this post along to a human I know that drives with a backseat bear. I had notification this morning that he'd passed it on to another backseat bear's driver.

In addition to the roadside campaign, perhaps an email appeal would help save fellow stuffies.
