Service animals get a pass. Folks have gotten ridiculous with this. Everyone can get their mutt certified now as a support animal, even online, just so that they can take them everywhere and avoid the hassle that normally occurs when you bring your pet anywhere they aren't generally allowed. It's become a total farce. Dogs in outside areas? So what.

Are American dogs dirtyer or more dangerous than dogs in other countries. I've dined in 23 countries, mostly European, and can't think of one where dogs were not allowed in dinning areas. Not on leashes either. In every case the dog goes under the table, and the server brings them a bowl of water. I guess their dog owners are smarter or their dogs are better trained than ours. Stray dogs and dogs on leashes are rare in most European countries. We have concealed carry, they have big well trained dogs.

This is ridiculous. I am sick of people and their dogs. I don't want to go to any restaurant and have to eat around anybody's dog. Man this is so unsanitary. I hope Landrys, Vic and Anthonys, Eddie Vs, Gringos and other places that I frequent don't start this mess. Leave your dogs at home and eat with them there.

As a rule, most dogs are more sanitary, better behaved, and better company in general than many of the mean-spirited humans whose company one must endure in restaurants, cafe's and bars. I must presume from your comment that you fall into that mean-spirited category. That you for letting us know which places to avoid.

I agree.Who ant to eat around dogs?

Wait until the well trained doggie has an "accident" in the dining area.[innocent]

That will make Galveston more like San Francisco, and LA Carlos. Ambiance!

I am currently looking for a small dog costume that my cat can wear, about a size 3 would be good. I am pretty sure it is a federal offense to question a dog whether it is actually a cat, and I have already advised my cat he is not required to answer any questions or show ID unless he is stopped when we are driving home.

Let me know what you find out. I too may try that plan! [whistling]
