Taking Fido and Fluffy out for dinner!

It’s true a few weeks ago, Governor Cuomo signed a bill into law allowing pet owners in New York to take their dogs to restaurants as long as they sit in the outdoor dining part of the place and are well behaved. The restaurant owner still has the right to deny the dog the pleasure of dining with you for whatever reason. However I think most restaurant owners will be very happy to have the added business this new law will bring.  So restaurant owners of NYC start to set an extra place at the table for all the new customers! And expect to see lots more dogs seated beside their owners in months to come, especially the warmer months. What is your take on this? Good or bad idea?

    It would be interesting to study if there’s a crrallooy between the pets that are overweight and if the owners themselves have an excess weight problem. Part of the problem could be that portions are out of control-it is easy to free feed and not have to worry about it, but then you run the risk of the animal eating past their point of satiety, and then excess weight starts to occur. It was an eye opener for me the first time I measured out 1/4 cup of dry food for my cat (I feed twice per day). It’s really not a lot of food when you think about it! My guess would be that people who eyeball and don’t measure could be pretty off. This translates to our own diets, too.
