I always go to supermarket like you do. However, sometimes I would encounter something strange and funny.I still remember that, Once I saw a dog waiting outside the supermarket and holding her own dog belt on her mouth. It is fun at the beginning when you see things like that.But when it comes to a hot summer and you just feel sorry for the dog that she's still needs to waiting outside the supermarket on a red hot summer. By looking at her tongues comes out and the way she breathe, you know that she'e having a hard time. I wonder why there are so many dog owner would treat their dogs like that.What do you think?

How I wish I have a dog like that, well trained. It is really amazing to see dogs follow what their master can tell them. Dogs are fun to tame as it is easy to do so. It might be that the master wont stay long inside the supermarket so that he left his dog outside to bear the scorching heat of the sun. hahaha But poor thing to do too! I would rather leave my dog home if I wont let him in the supermarket.

Irene, dogs are actually good freinds of human and it is nice to treat a dog well. However, there are just some people in this world who will always giving ahard time for the dogs. You know something ,in mainland China, you can alwyas see people eating dogs with all kinds of cooking skills and I find it disgusting. Howcan people do that to a loyal freinds of human and aet the pets while they don't have to.I never have adog but I once played with dogs and walk with the dogs on the street. Most of the times, I feel they are so freindly and truely a good friends for human. I think we shopuld treat the dogs or other pets well sinc ethey are just good friends to be with.Have a nice day.

Come to think of it, I don't think that there is a time in my life that I can think of where there has been a dog tied up outside a supermarket. However, there are a lot of times that our family will go to the grocery store to do our shopping and we will be barked at by dogs that people have left locked in their cars while they run into the store to do their shopping. Most of the time this doesn't bother me, but during the heat of the summer it is something that really bothers me.

I think its good people to avoid leaving their dogs outside the supermarkets when they go shopping at this time. Especially when the temperatures are extremly high-it just isnt fair for the poor animal.

In a way I sort of admire it because I think the owner is trusting their dog to stay outside and not do anything. An obedient dog. I sort of think it's better than tying the dog up around a post as I've seen some people do. Yet, I don't care how well trained an animal is, it is still an animal. For example, if the dog was mistreated by somebody in the past and you leave it in front of the store, and someone comes by who "looks" like the person that mistreated the dog in the past, then the dog might attack. I don't think that happens too often though.

i have seen people do that and the dog is waiting patiently for their owner but i don't know why they would do that in extreme temperatures, its not really fair to the dog.

I can't stand to see people leave dogs tied up outside of stores. they could be stolen from there or get away and be gone forever. it is done a lot where I am at and it should be banned. when I lived in Florida you would never see stuff like this going on..
