June 28, 2011 was seasonably warm in Saco, with the temperature hitting 84 degrees. Unfortunately for pets left in vehicles, however, what seems pleasant outside vehicles results in oven-like temperatures inside vehicles. When Officer Mike Tremblay responded to Funtown for a report of a 'dog in distress' he recognized the danger and took steps to remove the dog from the Quebec-registered vehicle. Unfortunately, 'Big Mike's' arms couldn't fit through the crack at the top of the window and it appeared that he would have to cause substantial damage to the vehicle to get the dog out. That's where Amanda, of Litchfield, Maine comes in. Amanda offered to help, and her diminutive stature proved an asset, as she easily unlocked the door for Officer Tremblay, who awarded her a challenge coin for stepping forward. Thankfully the dog was fine, and it was taken to the police station so the owners could be educated about the dangers of leaving animals in cars, even when the windows are cracked open.
