LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - You take your dog every where: in the car, to the park, but what about to a restaurant?
Lawmakers in Lansing want to pass a law that would allow mans best friend to dine with you on outdoor patios at restaurants.
"I think it's much safer to have your dog under the table with you in some shade than to be sitting in the car in the hot weather waiting for you to come back with some water for them," said Veterinarian Dr. Melissa Owings.
Dr. Owings says it's good for dogs, they want to be around their families. "I think it's safer than tying a dog outside which is what we have to do now.
"Michigan is a little bit behind the times."
That's what some Michigan lawmakers behind the bill think, allowing dogs on restaurant patios is good and attracts tourism. States like Florida and California are doing it.
"I have no problem at all with that. I even give them some water," said Joseph Lefevre, the manager of Bella Notte in Jackson.
Lefevre thinks it would make some, but not all of his customers happy. "There's a lot of people that walk around downtown Jackson with animals."
That's why lawmakers are working out specifics in the bill. For customers and restaurant owners like Kim Gamez who says she loves animals, but she's torn on letting non-service dogs on her patio.
"What if someone was allergic to animals or dogs? What if it had to go to the bathroom? I mean it's an outdoor space, I think dogs could just assume they could go wherever," said Gamez.
