Welcome to a series of posts I’ll do whenever I have an entire day to devote to creating an infographic. (Seriously, it’s my first one and I worked on it for like 9 hours, so please, be kind.)
There are two things going on here: (1) I’ve been looking for an excuse to practice design and illustration and (2) It’s summer and a lot of dogs get hurt when we take them out and about.
“Hey, Bowzer, wanna go for a car ride?”
Though it’s a question asked out of enthusiasm to be near a beloved pet, it often leads to dangerous and even fatal situations.
I scoured the web for a source that could tell me how many dogs die from heat stroke in hot cars every year, but sadly, no one keeps track. Every source I found simply said thousands. The stories are tragic and 100% preventable.
As the weather warms up, raise awareness of doggy heat stroke by sharing this neat-o graphic! (Click to see a bigger image.)
