|I have no qualms about leaving my dogs in the car as long as it's not too hot for them. I don't like it when people talk to them, but it happens.. Whether I roll down the windows enough to where anyone could stick their fingers in depends entirely on where we've gone--if we're on the wrong side of town I wont even roll down the windows. If we're in a place where I feel more comfortable, and we're only going to be in the store for a few minutes, I'll roll down the windows enough for the dogs to poke their noses out (but not their whole heads).
Fortunately I've never caught anyone trying to pet them, because if I did I'd have a few choice words for them, but we've come back to a few people talking to them through the glass... then when they realize I'm the owner and I'd like to get to my car, they ask stupid questions like "They're cute! Are they Springer Spaniels? You know, Springers are the only dogs with the white markings on the face like that, so they must be Springer mixes." (yes. Really.) To which I just smile and say "nope. Thanks though."
You could say I'm far too trusting, but I feel like I've got a good sense of where it's safe to leave the dogs in the car for a few minutes, vs. where it's not.
