What a sad and tragic story this is. With all of the stories on the news about kids being left in hot cars, the same care should be given to leaving pets in hot cars. While I am sure this was not done on purpose and the handler is heartbroken, I hope that lessons are learned from this tragic accident. Run free and play, Nyx, because your job on earth is done and was done well. Thank you for your service. God Bless and Godspeed sweet Nyx.
