Okay, okay, I give up. This story out of our fair (foggy) Olympia is all over the place and I suppose we might as well confront it head on. Maybe then we can get a leash on it, I know this is ruff, but I don't think it can be muzzled now that it is out of the kennel.
If dog-loving lawmakers prevail, Fido could soon be sidling up to bar stools around Washington state.Bars Should Allow Dogs
My personal vote would be No, no dogs allowed in bars unless they are working dogs. I am fine however with dog establishments built to shelter and water dogs while their owners drink. After the recent storms we surely have lots of free bark around that could be efficiently used for doggie rest stops.
No matter what, I don't think we can tackle this canine question without a few dog & bar jokes under our belt:A three legged dog walks into a bar and says, "I'm looking for the man who shot my paw..."
A man walks into a pub and sits down next to a man with a dog at his feet. "Does your dog bite?"
A few minutes later the dog takes a huge chunk out of his leg.
"I thought you said your dog didn't bite!" the man says indignantly.
"That's not my dog."
A dog walks into a bar. He hops up on a bar stool and says, "How about a free drink for the talking dog?" The bartender says, "Sure, the toilet's down the hall."
