Does Your Pet Get To Eat Out?
I don't mean outside, I mean in a restaurant. Recently I was eating in a Mexican restaurant in another town. Not a lot of customers so we kind of noticed the others around. One older couple was only a couple of tables from us. They had a baby stroller beside them. The kind that has like a hood that comes down. Not unusual to take your grandkids. About half way through our meal we heard an odd noise. Baby we thought, until it barked. The man did a little arranging in the stroller. They finished their meal and walked out. The lady with me told an employee as we went out you know the Health Department would close you down for that dog being in here. The employee said we have a sign at the door. Another time we were eating at a popular country restaurant. Decorated cute and good food. Two large dogs were lounging on the floor and walking around at times. We noticed when the waitress took dirty dishes to the kitchen the dogs would get up and follow. Did they work there as dish washers? I'm sure this restaurant wasn't under the jurisdiction of any Health Department. Neither time I wasn't bothered a lot but it could lead into something unhealthy. Some people do have pets in their house. My cats missed out, I never took them out to eat.
