Yup, not the first time the subject has been broached.
Browsing the forum is like reading the dictionary, you can learn something if'n you're not careful.

I've seen people leave a half dozen animals in an uninsulated skoolie with no ac.
Needs to be treated like leaving animals in ANY motor vehicle. If you've got no means of controlling the temps you have no business keeping animals in there.
Just my 2 cents.

I traveled the country for 6+ years in my first bus along with a cat and a Golden Retriever.

I had a nice Kubota diesel generator and two roof airs. BUT.... If it was warm enough that they may suffer if the genny or A/C quit I would not leave them alone for long.

Too many things to go wrong, IMO. Solar is not even a consideration. Generators could fail, run out of gas, or get stolen. Shore power lines could walk off on their own as well, if the source itself didn't fail.



Personally, I would never feel comfortable leaving a pet alone for any extended length of time in an RV / Skoolie where temperatures required AC to keep them alive.

Another lowlife has dumped their female pitbull out where we keep our buses.
Its a smoky gray color. Looks like it recently had a litter.

She was tired and panting from running down the middle of the road for who knows how long.
Got cussed out for leaving it in a friends' unused kennel next door but I'm getting the dog in the morning. Folks have NO empathy or compassion when it comes to animals. Yet these same people go and BUY animals.

Was a nice night until this. We went and had dinner with Sam and Gay, some really nice forum members.
We'd left Dixie at out bus and when we came back to get her this other dog had just been dumped.
She seems like a nice enough dog. Looks well fed and cared for. As long as she gets along with Dixie we may keep her.

If anyone wants a nice dog please let me know. I can't just leave em but I don't have the room or resources to start a dog rescue.
We NEED some sort of registry for pet owners! This **** is getting old!

That sucks like Electrolux!!!!!
While I try to be a decent person, and I know there us always room for personal self-improvement...
Inflamed rectums, such as would dump a momma dawg, after likely drowning her pups, inclines me to the classic Texas defense:
"Your Honor, he needed killing."
.

"Case dismissed."

The instantaneously lethal lead kind.
