Shameful

We were visiting our friends Cooper and Dozer and what they posted about we find just shameful. So we've copied their post below since they explain it very well.

Shameful Website - Cooper's Rant

I was just reading the Pet Connection blog and came upon a website they were discussing http://bringyourdoganywhere.com/ where you can pay big bucks to have your dog "certified" as a Service Dog so you can take your dog into places that normally do not allow animals (Post Office, restaurants, stores, etc). And people are buying this "certification" so they can get an animal vest and patches for $365.00. And they tell you right up front that they don't provide any training and you self-administer a "test" to determine if your dog is a Service Dog. This is just a way that you can circumvent the law.

Now I realize that I am an older dog and you young pups may think I am set in my ways, but this is not a "service", it is a disservice to the many wonderful dogs that train and provide service to all the people in the world who really need it. To buy a fake vest just so you can take your pet into the shoe store because it is more convenient for you is shameful.

I've gotten myself a little hot under the collar so Mum says I need to go have a little nap while she figures out how to contact these folks and in a nice way give them a piece of her mind. (I love it when Mum gets a burr under her butt and gets her Thesaurus out to tell folks six ways to Sunday how naughty they are!)

  4. We keep hoping that one of the bright sides of the gloomy economic news is that humans will rediscover cool things like honesty and integrity and that kind of stuff. Guess not.

    Thanks for letting us know about this travesty!!

  5. That is horrible. Mom says that we'd never fool anyone though because one look at us and people could tell we aren't trained.

    What do you think that means?

  6. What a horrible scam. If these fake "service" dogs don't behave, it will make businesses leary of real service dogs. We can't believe anyone would even think this was appropriate!

  7. That is very bad, all the hard work and good service those trained pups do. It is just like the humans who fake an illness/injury so they can get a handicapped parking sticker. Hope your Mom was able to express herself to those idiots.

    My mom jokes that she could have me as her service "shopping consultant" dog to take me into the mall but she never imagine they making money that way!

  23. As a younger pup, I look up to you, my older and wiser friend, Peanut. This is disgraceful and wrong and shameful.

  27. I just check out the blog & I am disgusted. This is not the right way to do it. So what if the dog is aggressive & still it can be allowed in such places? And what if the owner is actually perfectly okay with no disabilities & yet they have a Service Dog with them??? This is bad. All wrong!

  31. I'd think any human trying to label their untrained dog as a service dog will be found out as a fake in no time. Then the humans will look like the fools that they are!

  38. Flash,
    I think you are on to something. Those stripes must somehow keep the air from circulating to their brains. Ya think?

  40. Momma thought maybe a bone too, but I haven't had one in over a week, but maybe I left a piece in the yard for later, or maybe not.

    Slobbers,
    Mango

    P.S. Momma is truly stumped. She has never before seen such strange poops without having some clue as to what it was going in.
