SOUND OFF: Dogs Dining Al Fresco?
Should canines be allowed on restaurant patios?
It's summer, the evening air is enjoyable and it's dinner time. You pick up your keys and decide to drive to a restaurant for dinner to enjoy the weather so you don't have to turn on the oven.
But wait. Fido has been home all day without you and wants to tag along.
Should he be allowed to join you for a night of al fresco dining?
According to boston.com, some Salem restaurants are going to say yes. City officials said they are allowing restaurants to apply for variances that would allow diners to bring their dogs with them. According to boston.com, the Massachusetts food code has not allowed dogs at eateries since the 1990s.
What do you think? Should dogs be allowed? Would you bring your pooch? Sound off in the comments.
