To all the people who think it is a great idea to tie your dog up outside a coffee shop or restaurant, or leave your dog in the car while you are off having dinner; you're an asshole. Leave your dog at home, where it is safe and comfortable. People walking by can harm your dog, and it's easier for someone to walk off with it than you realize. And if you leave it in your car, it is probably whining and barking at everyone that passes by. Think of other people, and more important, think about your dog. Just bring home a doggie bag of leftovers and it will be much happier than when you tied it to a bike rack.
