Pooches on patios? Doggone right!

Full story: TwinCities.com

Let's all paws for 10 seconds of silence. Last week, the Minneapolis City Council passed an ordinance allowing dogs on sidewalk cafes.

What a brain dead society Minnesota has become. The government stepped
in to ban smoking for it may have offended someone and they use the guise
of 2nd hand smoke. Well, if I'm sitting in an out door patio enjoying a meal and along comes some big drooling mutt and lies down on the floor at the table next to me and starts licking it's balls, I would be very very offended. Leave it home and don't think it's sheik to bring your mutt every where you go and especially into populated areas where food is being served.

It is just plain stupid to allow this.
People can barely control their CHILDREN in public. And now we have the opportunity to be subjected to their mutt too.
Can you imagine the potential chaos for the SERVER? Not only do they need to watch out for the usual obstructions and hazards of their jobs, but now Minneapolis has added a new one to the list.
Just wait until the first patron or server gets bitten by someone's dog while at a restaurant. Or the dog ends up in the restaurant when the owner decides to go visit the bathroom. Or when the lovely mutts decide to not get along with each other or the humans around them.
Please leave your pets at home. Don't bring them to the local restaurant patio, or the local parade, or the grocery store. Don't take them places that they have to be left in the car. It's just cruel. If you can't be away from your dog, then perhaps you shouldn't leave your house either.
OK, loser. I have to admit here that my dog (a/k/a my child) is better behaved than most children anywhere! How about leaving the brats at home?? When was the last time you saw a dog screaming because they didn't get their way? Amen

Good points here, there are a lot bad reasons not to allow dogs.

I have brought my dog onto a restaurant patio in Stillwater. There were quite a few other dogs on the patio also. Ours, like the others were leashed and very much calm and controlled, they stayed under the table where it was shady and the waiter gave us a disposable saucer so we could give him water.

We had a very positive experience, I guess it just wouldn't work everywhere. Dogs like people....some I just don't want to be around.

I know there are a lot of people who love their dogs and treat them like children. In your own home that is fine. Taking them to places where others have to be in close proximity to them is wrong. It's inconsiderate to think that others want to see, smell or hear your beloved pooch.

I won't be going anywhere near a cafe or restaurant that allows dogs.

The same thing can be said for many peoples kids. Some should just be left at home so others can eat in peace.

I'm more offended by the pathetic attempts at whimsical writing in the article. "Let's all paws ..."? Give it a rest.

As with most things, let the market decide. If a cafe or coffee shop owner wants to let dogs in I say go for it. If you don't want to eat there, don't. The market is much better than the government at figuring such things out.
That's what we thought about the smoking ban.....
