I am really annoyed by this whole topic. I know that you really aren't supposed to bring dogs to restaurants. However, we have done it many times now. I know its wrong, but on weekends we are out for a whole day and we have Miko with us and he stays so quiet in his Juicy bag that we just do it all the time. Why is it so wrong? Someone on another forum suggested its not "fun" for the dog. Well, I disagree. We always put the bag on a chair and he either faces the window or some other view that he finds entertaining. I always feed him before or during our meal. If he didn't enjoy it, he would let us know (as he does with plenty of other things). Although its a health violation, so is not washing hands for employees at restaurants or what about all these restaurants that get a grade of "B" or lower? That implies they have some violation. I just needed to vent. Thanks for listening!!
