Please explain to the rest of humanity how that occurs, whether it goes back to your childhood, whether you associate it with rich people and you have a disdain of rich people, whether you don't like women (since you referenced a woman's purse). Just what is it?
    Men generally do not carry purses and it has been this way since before my childhood. I never expressed disdain with dogs, just people, women in general, who bring them into places that dogs are not generally permitted by operation of law.

    Anyone with a working brain cell would know a teacup poodle or a Chihuahua isn't a service dog.

    Doesn't matter under state law.

    Actually, my wife and I considered getting our doxie mix certified as a service dog. When she sleeps, she needs some thing worm and soft to cuddle up to or she simply cannot get to sleep (unless she is utterly exhausted). At home, I take care of that job, but when she would travel by herself, having Blue with her would have substantially improved her sleep. Don't underestimate the needs that a dog can fill.
    Our nation has not always lived up to its ideals, yet those ideals have never ceased to guide us. They expose our flaws, and lead us to mend them. We are the beneficiaries of the work of the generations before us and it is each generation's responsibility to continue that work. - Laura Bush
