Service Animals Complaint - Service Animals And Owners With A Chip On Their Shoulder
Another good dead goes punished. My sisters birthday is next week and her husband is out of town so I thought I would sneak her kids in to town to by her a gift. She collects antiques and there is this one little store she likes so I took them there. While we were shopping a couple came in with a service dog, an 80+ pound lab. I did not see them come in or we would have left. The youngest of the kids has had an issue with dogs ever since she saw a stray tear in to her rabbit hutch. We were in the back and the only way out of the store was past the dog. I politely asked if they would step around the corner so I could get her past the dog with out her seeing it. The lady went off. I have every right to be here if she is scared of dogs it is her problem, my dog won't hurt her. She then stepped around me and went in to the last room. The short story is the panic attacked was solved at the hospital. Most of the cuts she received from blindly running into a display case will not not leave scars, to her face neck and chest the ones on the arms may according to the doc. The shop owner is going to write the damages off on his insurance. The lady is pursuing charges as when the girl, 4 years old, ran in to the case and it fell back on her she went to try to help.
Since the dog went with her this made it worse. I "accidentally" tossed the mutt out of the way and got my niece out of sight of the dog while her sister was calling 911. All of this could have been avoided if the lady would have let me walk past with one little girl who I told her had panic attacks at the sight of any large dog. My faith in humanity increases every day.
