Welcome back for the second installment in this recurring series and if you are new we are glad to have you. For background to the newbies, this is a chance for my year and a half year old miniature Sheltie to speak her canine mind. If you were around Syudney for any amount of time you would realize her personality is so large that there has to be some questions she would like answered. I seek to be the best owner I can and attend to every need, so that is the reason we decided to bring her questions to this forum.
So this week’s QITMDWA is this, in Sydney’s words:
If I can go in Lowes, why can’t I go in Wal-Mart? I love to go anywhere with dad. Usually we go early in the morning and I know it is because he doesn’t want me to be alone at the house where I might wake up mom, Isaac or Meredith when they are home.
My favorite place to go is Lowes, because dad takes me in and everybody wants to pet me. They all tell me how pretty I am too. But there is this other place that dad goes and I have to stay in the car. What I want to know is if Wal-Mart hates dogs? Don’t they have what they need to clean up after me if I have an accident? I have finally learned how to let dad know when I need a walk, so why does Wal-Mart say no?
I knew this was a question on your mind because the look on your face when I get out makes me know you just don’t understand.

Tell Sydney it isn’t the store (although I still assert that Wal*Mart is awful..) it’s the other people there (some of them) who are NOT canine friendly. I read a blog post once (and if I could find it again, I’d tell your daddy where to go to read it) about this woman who was ranting on about people bringing their dogs into Lowes or any other store. She thought it was, among other things, unhygienic. I want to know what Lowes sells that might be compromised by the possible dog factor. Don’t they sell home and garden stuff? Anyway..here’s to the day when canines are allowed to go with their mommies and daddies anywhere. To my mind usually the dogs are better behaved than most of the children people encounter.
