Why aren't Dogs allowed in Restaurants asks Chow?

They call it a nagging question. Why aren't dogs allowed in restaurants is the topic of a Q and A led by Lessley Anderson and Jason Krause on Chow.

I do not mean by that dogs as food to be served. I mean as...patrons...

According to the article "the FDA prohibits live animals (except fish in tanks) in retail establishments where food is served".

Except that is if you are blind or your vision is seriously impaired and you need a 4 legged guide.

Amazingly, again according to Chow, in Florida, the first state to authorize dogs in 'outdoors areas of restaurants', the main concern was about our canine friends behaving badly (as some of us human do in public spaces) like fighting and biting fellow dogs or even people.

Did Florida legislate what kind of drinks dogs could get and what type of ID they should show in order to be served? I do not know.

I kind of hate the name. It fits right with the theme of the August Issue of Business...

Since Salary.com started crunching numbers on idle time in 2005, the percentage of the day that employees spend on personal matters or chatting with colleagues has been actually going down. Even these 2 hours or so 'wasted' at work might be more than made up by all the work...
