    After reading through the thread I must admit dogs in a restaurant do not bother me as long as they are not on the menu although some of the places I have eaten that may have been true.

    My German Shepherd is 118 lbs and he is an inside/outside dog. (He has a doggie door to the back yard) He comes and goes as he pleases.

    My wife and I raise service dogs to be guide dogs. We are returning another one in about 3 weeks after having her/training her for the last 11 months. We of course take her everywhere with us, as is allowed by law. So we see all kinds of reactions. She wears a vest while in public, and most people just ignore her, which we prefer they do. But it gives us a different perspective on the folks that cheat the system. We work so hard at training that it is very tough for us to accept some of the misbehaving animals we see in stores and restaurants being passed off as service dogs. One of my sisters is one of these. She got some quack to certify her little POS lapdog as a support or service animal. She is allowed to fly with that floor mop in her lap and we can't fly with our service dog because she's not fully certified yet! She is 100 times better trained my sisters dog. Ticks me off.

    But as to the subject, I don't mind well behaved dogs in stores that allow them. Home Depot's around here welcome them, as do Lowes, farm supply stores, pet stores, etc. We have 2 German Shepherd's that go with us to those places. But I don't like seeing non-service dogs at restaurants, outside patio or not. It just invites abuse, IMO.

    I share, but I tear off a small bite; Loki and especially Max would take the whole sandwich if offered.

    Although Loki is guilty of occasional "self grooming" I try to brush his teeth every other day; I know there are people with nastier mouths.

    My English Bulldog is incapable of "self grooming" he is too short / fat ; when I had him neutered he didn't get a cone of shame from the vet, I figured it was because he couldn't reach the area. When Loki was neutered he didn't get a cone either, I had to ask why he didn't get a cone to keep him from messing with it and they said it was never a problem, they were right.

    If @glockman10mm makes fun of me for brushing a dogs teeth it won't be a surprise I've not always done that, but being retired I have the time and it wouldn't be a bad thing if his teeth stayed clean like that for as long as possible.

    I enjoy meeting dogs at Lowes, etc, and take one of my Chihuahuas with me quite often - the friendly one. Truth is, most dogs are better behaved that some people I see.

    I had a Chihuahua once, never will again; of course he lived longer than any other dog I've owned.

    It depends upon the dog and it depends upon the business. A restaurant? No.

    If you've ever had to apologize for your dog in public, the dog may not belong in a store either. A lot of dogs are good dogs. A lot of dogs aren't, but in the eyes of their owner they're perfect little angels.

    I could and do say the exact same things about kids.

    This lunch was about as good as it gets without an ocean view.

    I didn't care much for dogs until we starting taking care of my son's dog sometimes. She is a lovable sweetheart! Now we'll take Sadie everywhere we can and one of us will stay outside with her while grocery shopping or at places that don't permit animals inside. Like anything else, you have to be aware and follow the rules. There will always be people that abuse any situation.

    I'm a dog guy, but I don't want to see dogs inside restaurants. Outside patios are fine as are dog friendly stores. Dogs that are constant yappers though, now that's another story.

    We swore after we put our last dog down two years ago Memorial weekend we'd had our last dog. But we've got a first pick deposit down on an upcoming pocket Beagle litter. We haven't had one this small before, but our retirement home kind of demands it. We've had dogs since shortly after we married 44 years ago (in August), and two years without a pooch in the house has been tough. Plus, the dog will be something that will drive me to remain physically active with walks up and down the steep hills of our neighborhood.

    The little GSD pup story in the video hits home for me.
    I don't tell anyone the horror story anymore, like yesterday when a waitress commented about other GSD's being "bigger", I just smiled and said he (Loki) is still growing, he is on par for 14 months old, and his parents were just average size.

    The story I don't share anymore: Loki was our first GSD, found him on Puppy Find when he was about 4 weeks old, backyard breeder 3 hour drive one way from our house. I liked that the parents were pictured in the car and on the couch rather than being kept in a kennel, he would be ready to go home about the time my boys got out of school for the summer, perfect. I picked him up at just over 7 weeks old, never had a GSD pup before and thought he would be bigger but he seemed okay other than being smaller than expected. Most pups that age are rambunctious, he was calm, figured he was just tired. About 1/2 way home we stopped and offered him water, he gulped it down. When we got home we gave him some food, he ate a little then fell over, what the heck! He stared passing worms, about 3 inches long, we were freaking out. He would walk and fall over, we thought he might die. We called our vet and requested an emergency visit, it was late on a Sat. afternoon. We sent the "breeder" a picture of the worms and her reply was "that's normal" . I was livid , how could anyone be so dumb to let this happen; I assume it was stupidity since I got pictures of the pup in a crib with her toddler right before I picked him up. No, I never contacted the "breeder" again. Loki was only 4.5# at just over 7 weeks old.
    Loki was so dehydrated, the vet gave him an IV, high calorie gel and wormer, said he would normally keep him overnight in that condition but nobody would be there. We took Loki home and prayed he would make it. Loki eventually passed 12 of those horrible life sucking parasitic worms. Loki was a "rescue" that shouldn't have been a rescue. I could have gone to the humane society and gotten a healthier pup.
    My buddy had a rough start, but by a year old he was about 76# and 24'' at the shoulder, average size for a male GSD.
    In Loki's case, average is pretty dang good (a miracle).
    It sickens me that parasitic worms (and stupidity) nearly killed such a beautiful, sweet dog.
