    Dogs must be able to open their mouths to regulate their temperature and respirations.It causes great emotional distress also since the dog has no idea how to deal with this.Muzzles should be removed every 30 minutes.Such a cruel act shows a huge lack of compassion and judgement.Posting it shows pride in her actions.Come on! If you can’t do whats best for an animal or child don’t have them.
