I know very little about service dogs or guide dogs although I am all for them. However I am curious about how that works. Today while sitting in Whataburger a family, Mom, Dad, Teen age girl, and young boy came in. The teen age girl was leading two large dogs with vest which read "Guide Dog". Started me to thinking--- are two members of one family allowed to have a service dog? Neither person seemed to be blind or otherwise handicapped. Now I know someone could have an anxiety disorder but two dogs led by one girl? Are these dogs ever trained by a family? John was a little offended by two large dogs where he was eating. It didn't bother me but I am curious about how all this is done and what could have been in this case. John said Whataburger is not in the business of training dogs. Yes I say, but they would have to be taught how to behave in a restaurant. They were very clean looking dogs and behaved very well other then I did see one stand up once and appear to be slightly begging for food. I used to see a lady bring a very small "in arms" dog into Walmart. An anxiety calmer, you think? Being responsible for an animal in a store wouldn't calm me, but then that's just me. I think it's wonderful for people to be able to have this help.
