Dogs in Restaurants

Why do Germans take their dogs to restaurants? Well, remember – a dog is man’s best friend, and why would you leave your best friend at home if you went out having fun? Maybe even in a dog crate, since you are afraid he’d scratch up the furniture or pee on the carpet. So, is this how you trust your best friend?

You may say that it is not considerate towards the other restaurant-goers. Oh, the doggie won’t bother them, he’ll probably just lie under the table, having been provided with a dish of water by the waitress. How about hygiene, then? Well, nobody is forcing you to eat off the floor!
