It has been hot this summer. The wife and I are planning to
move to Texas. During the move we will have to do a lot of driving with my two
Beagles in the back seat of my van. There will be times when we will have to
leave the dogs in the car for perhaps 30 minutes at a time. But, how do I keep
them cool, when the car is baking in the sun?
Using a wireless thermometer, I discovered that the inside of my van
can reach dangerous temperatures. The highest temperature I saw was 147
degrees F, which took only 45 minutes to reach from a cool 72 degree condition. That
kind of heat would kill my two dogs in short order.
