Too many Mutts allowed in stores

Don't know if any of you have noticed, but seems last couple years way too many pets have been allowed in stores/shops/restaurants/wherever. Seems every time I go I see more and more.

Used to be a seeing eye dog was allowed and that's about it. Now I see all kinds of pets for "Emotional Support". Nowadays I understand the need for VETS and others who are truly diagnosed with PTSD are OK with me.

I for one don't wanna see so many mutts in stores and the reason they weren't allowed and were under strict control was health/sanitary concerns. Plus some stink and shed.

I think it has been abused like prescription drugs and anyone can just about get a letter from a quack doctor saying they 'Need' their pets with them at all times.

I'm sure they love their mutts to no end, but leave the darn creatures home if you really don't need them.

Cashier at Walmart said on guy had a pet lizard on his shoulder and a leter permit fer it...............Come On Man.............................. 

I say you wanna take them to a place they are appreciated go to a pet store like Petco.

     BC, maybe you just need to quit stinking and shedding so much.  B)

    I do agree, though, that the support pet thing is out of control.  I have yet to see a support dog misbehave, so that's good.

    Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    I don't get it either - saw an elderly lady with the ubiquitous poodle in her cart in Mall*Wart the other day. Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot?

    Maybe the mutts would like to sniff, lick and taste those do-it-yourself deli stands where you lift the lid and scoop up portions into a container to purchase that some grocery stores have......................or produce, donuts, candy or whatever.

    I wish they'd put up " No Midgets Allowed " signs.
    Then Clean couldn't spend so much time and money shopping!

    1) they don’t need an actual note.  They simply by a vest online with the knowledge that no store (or store employee) wants to end up on YouTube having been “rude” to someone who really did need one.  Thus, nobody is ever questioned.

    2) I am probably going to have get a legitimate one in the next 1-2 years for my son.  Legitimate ones are big, smart breeds like Labs. They cost a fortune to train.

    Illegitimate ones are little **** Zhu’s in the possession of Yoga Pants Lady in Whole Foods.

    unfortunately its the world we live in now.

    give someone an inch and they will take a mile.

    we have the same problem and even on our local buses.  All the driver can ask is "is that a service animal" and if the person lies nothing can be done.  

    Ive see people in stores with their dogs and where their dogs will take a leak on a corner shelf.  Same with dogs in restaurants and such.  

    Same with the person that took their dog and a flight and it bit the person in the next seat.  ITs unfortunate it happen, but something like that will need to happen for the laws to change.

    We have handicapped parking all over the city and those disabled passes are giving away like candy.  Got a sore foot, and you can get your doctor to get you one.   

    seattle has done away with them now and if you are handicapped and you are driving, you can get out of your car and feed the meter just like someone else.

    I wish PDX would do that.

    its the people that feel they are "entitled" to things that ruin it for those that truly need it.

    There is no ball licking allowed in this room boys lol. We have a guy who brings his dog into school to show the children, and I am ok with it. Some dogs are a bit smelly, but guys are as well, so gotta deal I suppose lol.

    As long as the dogs leave me alone, I'm fine. I dread the day one of those little 'ankle biter' mutts latch onto my ankle when I'm out and about in a store, though. About all l can say about that is that the dog will achieve low earth orbit, or go through the suspended ceiling tiles, whichever comes first. Love dogs, but won't tolerate an ankle biter gnawing on my shanks.

    Ha, they had a thing on the Gutfeld show last night about this. Some states are tightening their laws to stop some of the abuse many take with 'Emotional Support Companions'.
