I came across a picture on Facebook. It's a note that someone left on their car window while parked at a retail business in Yakima. The car was RUNNING, AC was on, and the dog was in the car.  It seems like it SHOULD be illegal. What if the dog somehow took the vehicle out of "park" or worse, the vehicle caught fire? What if someone decides that fido isn't aggressive and decides to steal the car?

There are just so many bad scenarios that outweigh the good with leaving the car running with your pet alone inside.  If it were me, I'd just leave the dog at home next time.
