Oh heart hurts for Maru and his family. He must have been SO scared and suffered a lot. The dear old soul.

While the people who stole the van deserve punishment extreme- the family that left a dog in running vehicle are also guilty! They made it so easy for someone to steal the van and harm the dog. Would you leave a kid in a running car these days?!?!?

I'm heart broken that Maru is gone. I was so hoping 4 the safe return of this senior sweetie. Tho it's not the time to preach but the owners should have never left the car unlocked with the keys in the ignition either. I hope these morons are found. RIP sweetie. Thx Kelly
