Victoria Davidson, 43, left Monty and Scrappers in her car on a cloudy day for what she thought would be a ten-minute business meeting.
But the meeting lasted more than half an hour and by the time she got back, her dogs were suffering from heat exhaustion.But fear not! Victoria had a great idea as a result of this!
No, no! Not to never be so bloody stupid again! Perish the thought!
No, the great idea was....to make some money out of gullible idiots as dim as her:
Mrs Davidson, a former equestrian eventer, launched her AnimAlarm device two months ago and is selling it from her home in Maisemore, Gloucestershire.
The gizmo, which costs £108, looks like a TV remote control and is the size of a mobile phone.
The user sets the maximum temperature to be reached before an alarm is triggered and places the device in a shaded part of the car.
It sends the user a text message if the temperature reaches the present threshold.The police will probably order thousands of units.
