I agree - if you need something at a store go home and drop the animal off. I was at a Loblaws once - someone with a dog - scared people and people sneezing like me. People have allergies to dogs and don't belong in any store that serves or has food in it. Only dog or pet that should be allowed is a service animal.
I love animals - I have cats and one leashed trained to go out in public & socializes but I don't bring him while I am shopping or to pick up something. I leave him home or drop him off.
