Last September, the co-owner of this blog, Jeffy Guy, and I attended an event at Lancaster Brewing Company to benefit ORCA. At the time, dogs were allowed on their specious deck on East Walnut Street. Unfortunately, dogs are no longer allowed on patios at Lancaster eateries. Someone complained about dogs at the General Sutter Inn in Lititz, and the PA Department of Health shut down the dog goodness at many local eateries. The squeaky wheel ruined outdoor dining for the dog moms and dads.
This was most disappointing to the dog lovers among us, so I was
overjoyed to board a few Southwest flights this September and see dogs on the plane. Dogs were on each of my flights to Boise. Since Southwest lets you choose a seat, I chose to sit next to each dog, the first of which was a Brussels Griffon and the second a buff-colored Corgi. I find dogs very relaxing to be around, so the dogs on a plane was a bonus I hadn’t expected. If dog-friendliness is unique to Southwest, then they just made a customer for life.
