Question: Should Dogs Be Allowed in Bars?

Issue: So, this dog walks into a bar … Bill would let masters take pooches in pubs/Rachel La Corte, Associated Press

Washington Sen. Ken Jacobsen, D-Seattle (who doesn’t own a dog): “I was sitting at the Fish Bowl looking at all the dogs outside sitting in the cold and the rain, while all the owners were warm inside. There’s all sorts of places you can bring animals now. You can take dogs into hotels. My God, some people are carrying dogs in their purses. Why can’t we have them in the bars?”

DFO: I own a dog, but I don’t go in bars much, if at all. However, I don’t think dogs should be allowed in most public places, including events like Fourth of July parades. Too much room for problems with other dogs and people.
