Back to the OP's original complaint, and the article that was posted from barfblog, which stated:
"...the sense of dopiness in the state has apparently gotten so bad that the state Department of Agriculture has to allocate resources to a public awareness campaign to remind Oregonians it's illegal for dogs to enter grocery stores - unless it's a service dog."
and the article from the NYTimes said:
"In response to the complaints, Oregon is about to begin an unusual campaign, distributing posters and pamphlets to about 4,500 retail stores that sell food. The message is this: Animals, except those trained to help the disabled, are not allowed."
That's the bottom line. It's illegal to bring pets into restaurants and stores that sell food, due to Public Health Regulations, pretty much anywhere in this country. How hard is that to understand?

All the rationalization and justification and goofy excuses miss the point. It's illegal for pets to brought into any business that sells food to the public.

Tell a friend.

It doesn't matter what your justification is for insisting your dog be allowed in the supermarket. He isn't allowed, because the law says he isn't allowed. If you want to break the law, that's your prerogative. Just like it's my prerogative (and actually, my duty as a citizen) to report you for it if I witness it.

I saw a dog in the food section of Target once. A woman had her Yorkie sitting in the child seat of the shopping cart. I didn't mind. I started a conversation with her and told her how cute the dog is.

Shortly after I talked to her another customer scolded her for bringing her dog in.

That's the only time I've seen a pet in a grocery store that wasn't a service dog.

I wouldn't bring a pet with me into a grocery store, but I don't mind if other people do.

Given the choice between having a dog in the grocery store or having to deal with a shopping cart covered with green baby poo, I'll take the pup, thanks.
