This is my response to Arthur Young (letters, June 27), who appears to take exception to dog owners bringing their service animals into a restaurant. I have observed this practice many times, and almost without exception, the dogs are very well-behaved and cause no problems with other diners. Even dogs that are not service animals who are taken into outdoor areas generally cause no trouble.
Quite frankly, I would much rather dine with the dogs than with many humans in the establishment.
For example, the screaming children whose parents refuse to take them out to calm them. Then there are the adults who seem to believe the entire restaurant is actually interested in their loud conversation and raucous laughter.
I’ll take the canines anytime!
