Jennifer has sent an statement to the media after being criticised for leaving her dog inside an allegedly hot car with the windows cracked opened for a few minutes while picking up some laundry Wednesday morning in Vancouver. A reporter who happened to be in the area and a passerby raised their concerns to Jennifer about the incident.
On Thursday, Jennifer told Global News in a statement: “I have loved dogs my whole life. They’ve been in my life since the day I was born. Every dog I’ve had has been a rescue. I would never ever jeopardize an animal’s safety. Ever.
I’ve worked with dogs in obedience, agility and shepherding training. I am not only a loving dog owner but a discerning one.
The morning was a cool 73 degrees. I, and others, were wearing jackets. I rolled all four windows down and left the car for five minutes to pick up laundry, my car visible to me the entire time.
I wondered why two people were congregated by my car taking pictures of my girl. Proud mama thought it was because she’s so gorgeous. While I appreciate their vigilance and what must have felt like courage on their part, they were barking up the wrong tree.”
