As we were enjoying our catfish poboy sandwich and seafood gumbo in a Glenwood Springs Colorado Restaurant, a young man appeared at the entrance with his unleashed Chihuahua.
He coarsely requested permission to enter Lost Cajun with his puny mut without a leash. One of the wait staff told the unreasonable dog owner that no pets were allowed without a leash.
Another Lost Cajun employee quickly interceded providing a rope to tie dog to table leg where customer requested a cup of water for his unvaccinated canine friend. This produced a thumbs up from a bearded man who may have been the owner. See picture with chihuahua drinking out of styrofoam cup below for evidence of this.
This Cajun Food Place is adjacent to a lot of construction that has been ongoing for two years it seems. I understand that they need all the business they can get. However, I doubt the disheveled man they let in the front door has ever taken his dog to veterinarian. For all we knew the pet had rabies. This public eating establishment is setting itself up for a lawsuit if dog breaks free and bites somebody. The owner of dog certainly did not appear financially capable of paying for possible litigation.
Understand Restaurant proprietors, you have paying customers with smartphones that expect you to adhere to public safety laws and regulations. Being nice and accommodating to one customer with special demands is no way to do business.
