Remember the good old days? You could walk your dogs into an outdoor restaurant and have a meal with a friend and Man's Best Friend?
January 2000 by my measure.
Two friends are walking their dogs, a Dalmatian and a Chihuahua, when they smell something delicious coming from a nearby restaurant.
The guy with the Dalmatian says, “Let’s get something to eat.”
But the guy with the Chihuahua says, “We can’t go in there, we have dogs with us.”
So the first guy says, “Just follow my lead.” He puts on a pair of sunglasses and walks into the restaurant.
“Sorry,” says the owner, “no pets allowed.”
“But this is my seeing-eye dog,” the guy with the Dalmatian says.
“Yes, they’re using them now.”
The owner says, “Very well, then, come on in.”
The guy with the Chihuahua repeats the process and gets the same response from the owner: “Sorry, pal, no pets allowed.”
“But this is my seeing-eye dog,” says the second guy.
“A Chihuahua?” asks the incredulous owner.
“A Chihuahua?!,” says the man in the dark glasses. “They gave me a Chihuahua?!”
