Server Speak: How Do You Feel About Dogs on the Patio?

My feelings are I wish we could have them! I understand why we aren't allowed. There
are health code rules and some people just
don't care for dogs, but I enjoy them. The one
time we get to have dogs on the patio is during
Paws on Grand when all the restaurants with
patios open their spaces to patrons and their
dogs. It's like a weirder Grand Old Days.

Personally, I love it. I wish I could pet them
but then I'd have to wash my hands like a
hundred times a day. There was a Husky a
couple weeks ago that was so adorable I must
have walked by it 20 times just to look at it.

I think dogs are more than welcome. If
you don't allow dogs then why do you
have a patio? Dogs are nicer than people
and people who bring their dogs are typically
nicer humans.

I say bring ‘em! Dogs are a part of your
family. If my roommates went out to eat and
left me at home, I'd feel pretty sad about it.

I love the idea of dogs on the patios, but well-trained.
