Personally, I’d prefer a dog (mine), in a pub than someone’s little shit of a kid squawking. Best not come to Devon, often more dogs in pubs than humans😂😂

I agree re squawking kids unless they are a baby as they really can't help it or don't know any better. The sad thing is it is probably the middle class family, with the uncontrolled kids running around and squawking who also have brought the dog as it is part of the family too!  Entitlement is strong in today's middle classes who seem to want everything apart from taking responsibility.

Never had a problem with our kids in a restaurant, only ever got compliments, as they were brought up with some discipline and taught what was right and what was not.  Unlike today's "parents" who seem to think it is all about negotiating with little Alasdair or Chelsea. They're bloody kids, not UN peacekeepers, so no need to negotiate, just make sure they know how to behave whether in a supermarket, a pub/restaurant or anywhere else.

However Danny, I do love how people like to deflect from an issue and push it somewhere else. That seems to be all to common these days too as it allows one to avoid the question/reality.

In 50 years of owning dogs I have never taken one into a restaurant and they only go off the lead in a confined space.

Exemplary. Ever thought about training humans in dog ownership! ;)

I did arrange to meet a friend for a meal and knowing she was likely to have her dog I arranged it to be at a pub where they split the restaurant, upstairs = no dogs, downstairs=  dogs allowed, and they split clientele accordingly, if you don't want to bring a dog they assume upstairs. To be fair, that's a pub that is on the coast (the carpark leads to the beach) and they market themselves for dog walkers etc.

You can eat dogs and cats, but not kids. In fact given there are some 12m dogs and 12m cats in the UK you could help the planet and cure hunger in the UK in one go. Stop people having kids and in a generation the planet will have recovered.

I'd rather starve than eat my companion animal. There are also few biological reasons against cannibalism, so 'can' may not be the correct term. Lots of ethical reasons of course, but those can swing either way. And yes, we do have too many pets and that's not only bad for the planet but also not good for a lot of those pets as they never get the care and love they deserve.

I have to totally agree with your last sentence!
Looking at how nature is flourishing around places like Tsjernobil because there is no human presence, a nuclear war would probably save the planet, just not for us. 😉

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

Should I rename this topic to 'what made you shake your tail today'?!

I can't remember the last time I saw a dog in a restaurant, didn't think it was even allowed!!

Pretty common over here, but in the open type Alfresco areas. Not in restaurants themselves.

All we know is that when they stop making this, we will be properly, properly sad.Jeremy Clarkson on the Esprit.

Same here, quite common outside, theoretically not allowed inside. But small/quiet dogs that remain at the owner's feet are tolerated in many places.

She was on my flight last night. If I'd have known, I'd have given her some choice words, but she got on last and off first.

I only knew she was on as we all had to wait for her to vacate before we could get off.

If only she would vacate her spoilt throne. I'm sick of waiting for that even though she has not had a majority for years, not that you'd know it from her entitled antics.

Did I hear correctly that they are suing the English government because their security has been withdrawn?

I think that like many men before him he has been led by a part of his body that is not his brain.

He has chosen a wife who obviously was used to celebrity and thought that Royalty would be the same. It isn't and she has been found wanting and unknowledgeable in that area.

Just seen the headlines in the news about the self-exiled Prince Harry and his domineering wife.

 

Fixed it for you. No exile invitation was extended on our end as the US was, at the time (still is, really), at capacity for entitled, self-absorbed celebrities. It's not like the good citizens of Elba in their time had a choice, either.
