Basically 3 ways to arrive at an opinion. Sometimes they all work together, leading to an excellent one.
When is a pet also considered a service dog?
I recently shared an indoor environ with a lady and her pet dog. Or should I say a "service" dog. Her dog, which reminded me of an everyday pet, didn't seem to serve her in any way. He didn't seemed to be a trained service dog, not at all. He followed her around, and barked, and even shimmied like he was trying to rid it self of fleas, like a common dog. Yet he was allowed to enter a public building as though her owner was somehow disabled. She wasn't blind, because she was using the copy machine to make copies. She wasn't deaf because she shushed the dog when he barked. It got me to wondering; Is it ever appropriate to question a person whom brings with them, into a building where only people or legitimate service animals are allowed, a comfort animal (my other name for a pet dog or cat -- like Dr. Evil's cat in the Austin Power's movies)?
