Common sense??? I'll make it easy to understand. LEAVE THE DOG HOME!!!!!!! Enough said!!!
morlamweb July 12, 2014 at 03:04 pm
I agree, Stephanie! "Common" sense should be to leave your dog at home. What Cai andRead More Michael don't seem to get is that temperatures in a parked car get very hot very quickly, particularly in the hot summer sun. Even four minutes in the shade with the windows open can make it uncomfortably hot in the car. Believe me, if I see a dog trapped in a hot car, I WILL report it. Responsible dog owners do NOT leave their "beloved" dogs in the car!
Samantha Marley August July 14, 2014 at 01:01 pm
My car doesn't have AC. If I can drive around for hours without getting too hot, or sit in theRead More direct sunlight with the windows open and not overheat, I think a dog can survive three minutes with ice water and windows down.

Unless they enforce the law it doesn't matter what the penalty is!

Honestly, in 1989 I was caught in Portsmouth throwing a soda can out of my car, coming around theRead More bend at the overlook near Kaiser Aluminum. I had to go to court and paid a $50.00 fine and it is still on my record. On the very rare occasion I have some interaction with law enforcement it is VERY embarrassing, now that I am older and know better. EVERY police officer WILL enforce that law IF the offence is observed. BELIEVE IT......

Honestly, in 1989 I was caught in Portsmouth throwing a soda can out of my friends car, comingRead More around the bend at the overlook near Kaiser Aluminum. I had to go to court and paid a $50.00 fine and it is still on my record. On the very rare occasion I have some interaction with law enforcement it is always brought up and it is VERY embarrassing, now that I am older and know better.

It's now illegal in Rhode Island to leave a dog in a sweltering vehicle. File photo.

There are a fair number of people who are genuinely unaware of the danger, there are people who doRead More not like to be told how to run their lives and that extends to the creature in the car. I have on 4 occasions nicely and politely informed a person that it would be harmful to their dog to leave it in the car, as the dog had been. I have never had anyone say thank you I did not realize. I have been threatened with violence and basically run off. So what does that say. That is why it needs to be a law..so there is no "discussion". awful.
Samantha Marley August July 14, 2014 at 12:35 pm
If it's illegal to leave pets outside, we should be able to take them into the stores with us. MyRead More dog is an adorable long-haired Chihuahua. Everyone on earth wants to pet him and hug him, and for that reason I can't leave him outside a car -- he's very nervous and I wouldn't put it past him to nip or bite someone who tries to pet him. He's safer in the car. I also leave all the windows open, leave him loosely tied to the seat to leave him enough room to move around, and leave water with ice in it for him. This is all for a two second run into the store, literally never more than three minutes. I just think it all comes down to common sense. Don't leave anything in the car with all the windows up. Roll them down or put on the AC. However, I don't think any random person should be able to smash in my windows that are already mostly rolled down to get to a dog who is perfectly fine hah. This just seems sorta ridiculous. Obviously, don't hurt animals. I am actually huge on animal rights. This just seems excessive.
Kellie Jackson July 21, 2014 at 02:38 pm
Samantha, no. Just no. You shouldn't be allowed to bring your pets into stores. If you have to goRead More shopping, leave your pets at HOME. They don't belong in stores, making messes that most customers leave for the associates to clean up. If it's a service animal, that's fine. No other exceptions...

see makes it much more harder for people who actually need help because of people like this

Why did less than 2 years of RIte Care cost $23k. The full cost of a premium family plan with 2Read More adults plus kids is around $12k per year.
Kendall Pelletier July 8, 2014 at 10:42 am
yeah unless she did it way more then 1 year but still not right for people who actually need helpRead More when scum like this abuse the system and take away from a family that actually needs the help

DEM teaches hunting education, has an archery range for proficiency testing, has Women's archeryRead More field day, etc. Hunting is essentially the only tool that DEM has to manage populations of game animals, and, due to population density, there are few places to hunt with a firearm.

how much are they willing to buy them back for?

Im sure if they posted that the bows were stolen, then people would have set up the seller and theRead More police. Seeing that they kept it quiet until now, its going to be harder to find them. Secrecy is not good.

Total BS. I live in Woosocket. We are right next to the border of Massachusetts. We have gunshotsRead More every day. Accidents 5/8 times a day. I walk over the border and everything is much cheaper. Let alone I have never been ripped of in MA. Of course Ri has the 2nd in "Fatal Occupational Injuries per Total Employees" as their is no work... As for sec offenders. We have 6(six) on our block alone and they allow children to live on this block knowing 2 of them wewre convicted pedophiles. These statistics are falsified. I would like to know the source of data for this. To me it appears that someone paid for these rankings to help drive more people to RI. Shame

I had my home insurance policy with Union Mutual Fire Insurance Company of Vermont, policy purchasedRead More from AAA. Last September the area of Sowams Road was hit by a wind driven hail storm that caused damage to most roofs in the area. Make sure you check your roof, if your roof is damaged you can file a claim to replace the roofing shingles unless if you have Union Mutual fire Insurance company of Vermont which would deny any claims for hail damage to roofing shingles. Lesson learned......I switched to AMICA.... very professional and best service....... Stay away from Micky Mouse insurance companies

Hey there. No worries, sir. I'm still working on my first cup of coffee this morning and I just wentRead More through a few comments before yours that and it started to feel like I was getting beaten over the head with a nerf bat. Thanks for the reply. I hear ya, in terms of the past. You're right - this was shared with Tiverton/LC Patch and I obviously should have been clearer in the story. Thanks again and kudos for the reply. It's good to know we're both human, right!? Hope you have a good weekend.

No worries here, either ... I know what you're dealing with; I was the Internet editor for a largeRead More Florida daily for a while and had to deal with the same old grumbling in the morning. I should know better <g>. You have a good weekend as well ...

I find this info and article disturbing. On the one hand, I have a right to know who is in the areaRead More and what they have done. On the other hand, now I feel less safe in my neighborhood. What chance does an offender have for reformation? Does that rate an article?
