    Why does a dog need to go to a restaurant with you any ways? Never understood that.

    Right, and it's a potentially huge liability issue for the restaurant. In the summer months when restaurants get crowded, it the dog were to bite somebody, or the dog gets injured due to the large number of people, then the restaurant has a lawsuit on their hands.

    A while back, we were at my father's house for dinner and his wife's kids brought their dog along. My stepmother had spent days fixing the food for the holidays, a ham, potato salad, etc. My husband ate and enjoyed everything, and even took home leftovers. He was excited to enjoy a sandwich and salad again later that night..........until I told him there was dog hair in all the food. We checked it out, and sure enough, lots of black fur in everything.

    So imagine sitting at an outdoor restaurant with the breeze blowing across the bay, a beautiful sunset, a yummy meal in front of you, and then you see the dog hair floating up and onto your plate. We send food back to the kitchen if we find human hair in our food, so why would you want to eat anywhere that you can get dog hair in it as well?

    I like dogs, always have. But in their place. And that's not in a restaurant. We make it a point to not stay in pet friendly hotels or eat at restaurants that allow dogs. And that's the answer right there. If you don't like dogs and their hair in your food or in your hotel room, avoid those places. Problem solved. I don't try and make my dislikes anyone else's problems.

    More and more outdoor restaurants seem to be accepting dogs these days. We were in DC this past summer and went to a Mexican restaurant with outdoor seating. thought our dog would be OK in the car for an hour or so, since it was in the evening and the car was in a parking garage. Turns out, due to the oppressive heat that day, it was still over 90 in the garage. The owners allow dogs to sit outside the railing at this place, so problem solved; they even brought him water.

    We were in Dallas last year and it's a very dog-friendly city. Dog parks everywhere downtown and we ate at this really cool outdoor restaurant that allowed dogs. There was a laundry list of rules for the owners, which everyone followed, and a good time was had by all.

    Shenanigan's allows dogs after the Halloween dog parade

    I say if you're outdoors, anything goes.

    You are so right! And dog owners have got to realize that there are people who are allergic to dog dander, which is in the air when there's a dog around!

    The bad part is that nobody enforces the law in season either.

    Especially recently. I've probably seen more dogs on the Boardwalk the last two summers that I remember seeing the previous 30+ summers combined.
