I live in Steele Creek and I've never seen a dog in a (non pet) store. That must be a Lake Norman area thing!

I must say this is a major plus for me to move to Charlotte and I'm sure my fiance feels the same way.
Don't get too excited wvuwhat - While Charlotte is full of dog lovers, this is not the norm here.

I personally am allergic to nagging loud women in stores, but have to deal with it....

As for the dogs...YES, I have seen numerous little ankle biting twit dogs in grocery stores, Lowes, the flooring store I visited...they were all being carried...It's weird, I'm not that offended but....

I'm modifying a duffel bag and carrying my 50lb black lab into Harris Teeter and then Lowes and Target....wouldn't that be a sight....

Thanks for the chuckle, lyn2shoes! I can just picture it now...

Personally, I wouldn't even consider bringing my dog into a grocery store (he's a beagle and would try to eat everything in sight!). But, I don't have a problem with people sitting outside at a casual restaurant with their dogs. In fact, I've done this many times... my dog is usually lying under the table waiting for some food to hit the floor. We either bring him to places that we know are dog friendly, or we call to check with management first to make sure that it is okay to have our dog along with us. And even then, we try to find a corner, out of the way table so we aren't bothering other diners. For us, it is a privilege to be able to have our dog with us, and we do everything in our power to make sure he isn't being a nuisance, whether it be to the staff or the other patrons. We don't want to be "that couple" or "that dog" that gets on everyone's nerves.

I saw a woman with a dog in her cart at the Home Depot at RiverGate.

There is a dog bar in NODA and dogs are always welcome at Barbara's Canine Cafe in South End and Wags of Baxter in Baxter Village.

Many Charlotte restaurants allow dogs on their patios. Jackalope Jacks on 7th is one of them.

I did notice today that Harris Teeter has a "No Pets Allowed" sign.

Default Don't Move to Europe

Don't move to Europe, you folks who don't want to see dogs everywhere.

I lived in Europe for about 4 years and dogs go EVERYWHERE except grocery stores. Drugstores, department stores, the train, restaurants, dry cleaners, you name it. Its quite wonderful for those of us with dogs who like to take our friends with us when we're out. Many people WALK to stores, etc., so taking the dog in is great. Also I've seen big dogs sitting patiently without a leash, of couse, in front of the Aldi waiting while their owner shopped.

Charlotte just went up in my opinion as a dog friendly place.

I heard Jackalope's is moving over to central by the EB and penguin. Any truth to that?

I see dogs in Lowe's in Lake Norman all the time. I had no problem with it until we went down the aisle and there was a land mind waiting for us.

If you take your dog in there PLEASE clean up after it. That goes for you folk that walk around the neighborhood and leave your mark behind. Its ok if you leave it in your yard but I do not want my kid playing football or whatever at the playground and to fall in your dogs mess.

Thanks!!

P.S. We are a dog loving family

AMEN!

And I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE dogs. Unless the dog wants to bite, eat, kill me... I love it. I have seen little onese in Lowe's up here, too. One of my favorite things to do is go to Birkdale on a nice day. I so enjoy seeing all the doggies!
