Is Walking a Dog on Hot Pavement "Animal Abuse"?

This is a serious question and I genuinely don't know the answer...

In the video below, youtuber "Bud Slayer" seems to engage a man walking his dog and is infuriated that the dog owner is abusing his dog by letting it walk on a sidewalk on a hot day.

What makes this even more interesting is the fact that the dog-walker has a gun, prepares to defend himself against what may be a pet's rights activist, or may be a dangerous threat, and the man who may have started with noble concern about the dog proceeds to threaten the life of the dog owner.

The current climate in local news is to laud citizens who are shown breaking windows to 'save' pets left in cars and dozens of  YouTube videos hint at the fact that perhaps some of these rescuers want to be seen for their actions.

Take a look at the video below and decide for yourself:

The Truth about Ice Cubes and Dogs Dying from "Bloat"

15 years ago my yellow lab was found to have the bloat around sunset and we made it to the vet just in time to first put in a giant syringe (sans plunger) which let some of the air come whistling out while she was put under and prepped for surgery to turn her stomach around and save her from the bloat.

More recently, a ton of internet nonsense has been circulating about how water, specifically ice-water or water with ice cubes, can give a dog the bloat and be fatal...

It's not true.

We can thank the news-business tactic of "news jacking" for getting the word out as just about every broadcaster in america is leading with a story debunking the "ice water bloat" rumors - Here is just one example from Memphis:
