An Oven On Wheels

It’s simple physics: a car with its windows rolled up on a hot day can quickly become an oven. Sunlight — and therefore heat — can get in, but they can’t get out. Even if it seems cool out, that car can get really hot very quickly. At 72° F (22° C), it only takes an hour for a car to hit 116° F (47° C). Raise the outside temperature to just 80° F (27° C) and it can hit 100° F (38° C) in just ten minutes. Put a dog in that car and not only will it contribute

Spring Ahead, Fall Bark: Daylight Saving Time And Your Dog

Daylight saving time begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November at 2 a.m. We turn our clocks forward one hour near the beginning of spring, then turn them back near the end of autumn, giving us both the shortest and longest weekends of the year. What does this mean, other than causing confusion? For most of us, it usually gives us an extra hour in bed at the end of the year while depriving us of one near the beginning. One way or another, we know something’s up with the clock and
