And then a discussion will start on "guide dogs" versus "service dogs". In the United States, there are underground operations who draw up false certifications for service dogs, so people can get them in the cabin on airplanes and claim the right to bring them into restaurants. Proving once again that the Fido Fanatics recognize no boundaries and feel that others may be missing out on one of life's true pleasures if they are restrained from meeting their most wonderful pets!

Thank you very much, Tony.
I posted the reference on the Chapala forum.
Now, it's up to people to decide what's right.

And of course, we'll have a rash of new "service dogs", but if a person wants to find a way around the rules, they will.
Sometimes, as in the "car legalization" promotions, it will come back to (pun intended) "bite" them.

How hard is it to just "do the right thing?" Very hard, apparently.

To my way of thinking, this is all about arrogance, a sense of entitlement and people without manners or consideration for others! A quote from another forum pretty much lays it out:
"You don't like or care for dogs in or around a restaurant, then don't eat there. Very simple. Those of us who do not mind will continue to eat there."

Now that I have probably irritated more than a few, here is the reality: I have a reputation for being able to get along with virtually any dog or cat and I enjoy the heck out of both! In my 68 years, no pet has been allowed anywhere near the dining room table while people are eating. However, when dinner was over our dogs were trained to expect a treat providing they followed certain protocols - sit, allow dog biscuit to be placed on their nose but they couldn't consume until told it was OK. Dogs were never allowed to pester guests and also taught to ignore other ill behaved dogs when out in public. In other words, the dogs were taught their boundaries and as responsible owners, we dedicated the time to have pets that received compliments about their behavior. Never once took a dog into a restaurant!

It is my understanding from a blind friend with a seeing-eye dog on the Yucatan beach that those are allowed by federal law. My wife is legally blind, but gets around with a cane and a seeing-eye husband for now. I know that I am allowed :-)
