Never seen it here. Our folks are a bit more saavy on such and do not
allow them in. Randomly though you do hear of emotional support
animals causing problems at the beach. Gary may know if it's common.

BTW, we do have some limited area beach access for dogs (on leashes).

"Our folks are a bit more savvy on such"... it's almost poetry.

I did see a "service dog" in my beach Harris Teeter grocery store about
6 months ago. I talked with the woman for a few minutes too. Nice lady,
nice little furry (fur over eyes) white dog.

Note: it wasn't some official service dog. That's what she was calling
it. lol

I had no problem with the dog in the store but others might have.

I have my reservations about all this support/service animal crap
though. It's just continuing liberal nonsense that we should accept any
weirdo as "normal."

IMO, if you can't even go to a store without your pet by your side, stay
home and order everything to be delivered. Even better...let your pet
order the food while you sit nearby in a chair softly crying over daily
stress.

We should accept every "weirdo" and I do. But I do wish the "weirdos"
would stop their attention seeking. Just because 0.001% of the
population don't know if they're a man or a woman is no reason to
change all public toilets to gender neutral.

That's rather crude, insensitive and narrow-minded, but then we all
have our weaker moments.

Best joke of the day.
Your rural area must be a haven for the blind.
The best blind haven in the universe.

In my entire lifetime I've only seen blind with dogs or with a white
cane tapping around on TV. Not once in real life. Perhaps they all sleep
late and get out later in the day (after my time).

If you think being blind is a joke then you are DUMB. There are blind
living everywhere... deaf too, my mom's best friend was deaf, that's
why as a young girl she learned to Sign.
There are road signs here that say blind/deaf child. There are also
migration road signs put out here at times of the year; Slow for
frogs, turtles, ducklings, etc. Garish lives a very sheltered life
that he's never seen a Seeing Eye Dog, he's never seen Deer/Moose/Bear
Xing signs. There are several US Military Vets in this small town who
travel with service dogs.

Not publicly yet. I worked for the Defence Department a few years back,
and all the washrooms had the 'M/F' signs removed. By the time I left,
many of their washrooms had user-written signs with 'Urinals' / 'No
urinals' posted which the management left in place, presumably for the
benefits of those 'in a hurry'.

Not everyone likes to have dog hair on their fresh produce or seeing dog
shit or **** on the floors. I love dogs, but I don't want them around
my food.

Maybe those people just need a little dollie or a teddy bear.

Yup...

And in the non - profit sector it's virtually a fetish...almost as widespread as the use of the terms "Latinx" or "equity"...

As long as they are single - use and a lockable door, no worries...

Did you really find dog hair on your produce?

Did I say that I did? But since you ask, I had dog hair in my produce,
on my baked goods, in my cooking. I have no doubt it happened at home
and was from my own dogs. I have had several dogs that shed a lot, and
there was dog hair everywhere. Being a dog lover, I never worried about
it much, but I guarantee you that a lot of people would be grossed out.
