I'm at a catch 22 place with this one.
I think it would be great to have dogs at cafe's etc - in a perfect world.
But it's not a perfect world.
I would hope all cafe owners ensure that the dog-owners adhere to the rules (as stated in that article.) What about owners who think their pooches are perfect yet are seriously deluded.
Sure, kids at cafe's etc can be unruly and a PITA, but at least they can't snap and bite you and hurt you to such a degree as a dog can. (Well, usually not. )
I dunno about this. However, I found the article hilarious! It was so rude and biased it was laughable!
