To the Editor:
When loading my car on a recent sweltering, hot day at a store in Georgetown, I noticed two little dogs left alone in the car next to mine. Two windows were cracked a bit, but that surely had little effect on their distress. Another patron saw this, too. Both of us went back into the store to report the problem and ask the management to call the police. They refused. When we pressed them, they shoved a phone at us and told us to call if we wished. We did.
