Then you are lucky aren't you? I had it once as a kid, we had dogs and cats so I don't know where it came from.

Just sayin.
We all got that too. Doesn't change the fact that I don't want either. Or fleas. I'm just saying we shouldn't have to be exposed to everything becasue a few people are petcentric and can't be bothered caring how others might be affected by it. Animals are not universally loved by all and don't need to be everywhere. That's ok.

For the record I have cats, but I don't take them with me when I go out.

my dogs don't have fleas because I'm a responsible pet parent.
I don't like being exposed to all the germs children have just because people think their kids are adorable and loved by all and won't pay for a sitter to watch them; so they run around the stores and scream and throw tantrums. My dogs have never thrown a tantrum or barked in a store.

You said it, not everyone is a responsible parent and I'd rather not be exposed to irresponsible dogs owners or kid owners. I'll just repeat my first post...we can't lock kids up in cages or crates or leave them home alone when we go out. Socieity frowns up that. We can leave dogs home alone though.

Personally I find it unsanitary, just like having dogs in or near restaurants.

I love dogs too but I'm a little "funny" when it comes to my food. Both my dogs are forbidden in the kitchen or any place there is food.

That is correct.... you can't "lock kids up in cages or crates or leave them home alone when we go out."
Hire a babysitter.... you made it, you pay for it.

It used to be the only dogs you would ever see in stores were seeing eye dogs. Now I see dogs and other animals in stores more and more. I am an animal lover, but a grocery store is no place for people to bring their dogs or any pets for that matter. I have twice seen someone with a snake and another time a cat, plus many dogs.

Folks, remember the topic is dogs in stores, not comparisons between dogs and kids. This thread has just about run its course so stay on topic, please.

the grocery store is not your private home, it's as simple as that.... you don't get to decide to bring pets into the store and expose other people that don't want them there to it, just because YOU think they should be there. The obvious exception would be service dogs because naturally those folks are limited in mobility without them.... I don't know where some of these other, non disabled people get off though. I got a dog that I adore and been a dog owner all my life, but I wouldn't assume everyone else should put up with him in or around their food products. Very unsanitary IMO.

I was at the deli a few weeks ago and some stupid woman had a dog over there by me while I was getting my meats/cheeses, I moved away and gave her a look from hell for it too.
