|I see how you are frustrated. I think all dogs ****who can behave ***should be allowed in. I was recently in Germany, and there were wonderfully behaved dogs lying at the foot of the table INSIDE restaurants. The watresses even brought over water bowls for them. they weren't crawling on tables, chairs and certainly weren't in the kitchen, so I think it was perfectly sanitary.
I must admit, I do often bring my dog into stores in a bag under my arm (in a mesh carrier). I am sure it's not allowed at all -and do it when I have to run in somewhere quickly. I figure by the time they tell me he's not allowed in, I'll be done with my errand. The thing is, I work during the day, and feel I should spend as much time as possible with the little guy, therefore sometimes take him on a few errands with me. Don't get me wrong, I won't bring him in a restaurant because I know he'd eventually weasel his way out of his carrier. At his young age, he's too much of a handful, and needs to be kept under my arm. And I wouldn't bring him into a supermarket, as there is fresh food on display and I understand that some would find it offensive that I bring an animal in there.
just my thoughts....
