I wonder if Mr. Baker was taking care of his wife after her surgery...and his absence caused her to miss meds, food and drink, or something....causing her unresponsive condition. Where are you Mr. Baker, and where is your dog?

Very strange. It has to be hot there. Hopefully the dog has been taken in by a kindly person with air conditioning.
