Watch for assistance dogs
This is from a mailing list I'm on.
A 49 year old woman punched an
elderly woman in the mouth at a restaurant. The elderly woman, who was
deaf, entered a Italian buffet restaurant with her Sheltie, a hearing ear
dog who had his cape on. The jerk punched the older woman because she said
the dog "disgusted her." The police arrested her and she has been charged
with elderly abuse.
Please be aware that there are many types of assistance dogs, not just seeing eye dogs. They really help people who would have a much more difficult time without them, and they have a legal right to be anywhere the people are.
