I was just reading through the posts about dog carriers and taking our babies with us places. I guess I was just curious as to how many people take their Chi's shopping, like the mall. I know I do, but I always get worried about what the store workers will say if they see her or whether they really care. I know in the US or at least Ohio, it's not really allowed, but I do it anyways. I guess my thinking on it is that she is a measley 2 lbs, in a carrier, and isn't causing any harm..so what's the big deal? Is it okay to take your dog into a store with you even if it is not for a disability??
