Let me start off with a disclaimer. No, two disclaimers! The first is that I like dogs but cats are better (don’t gripe, you know I am right). The next is I kinda feel the same way about kids, that is, I like them, but grown ups are better! 🙂
With that out of the way the photo you see above was from last week’s fun run when I returned to Orlando, that is, MCO, and visited the Sky Club there. Ugg. I am just not a fan of “free range” dogs in the Sky Club and especially not so near the food service area.
I don’t care how cute the little pup is, I have an issue with non-humans near my food (well, yeah, I have issues with some humans too but that is for another post I think).
I mean I also have issues with folks HOLDING their pups like this lady at the Atlanta Sky Club that I saw on another trip a while back.
I get that these kinds of people think of their pets as part of the family but just because you love your pet, or kids for that matter, does not mean I need to share quality time with them and especially so if they are messing with food that is meant for everyone.
Beyond that I think all dogs should either be on a leash or in a carrier in the Sky Clubs (yeah, maybe some kids should also be on a leash or in a carrier as well). Just walking around or being held food counter level by mom is just – eeewwwwww!
And other things that bug me. Let’s take shedding. I have never met a dog that does not shed everywhere. Then there is drooling and other stuff, if you will. Dogs like to sniff everything and while we are at it kids like to touch just about everything (after they have picked their nose). None of this is OK in my book in any sort of close proximity to food service (or bar) area.
Sigh. I think I have a bad attitude this weekend but you tell me if I am wrong. Should dogs be banned from Sky Clubs (unless a service dog that is). Or, is it OK if they are there but they must be on a leash or in a carrier? You tell me – am I out in left field on this one? – Rene
