Seeing dogs tied to parking meters, trees, or street lamps is a common occurrence on my trip home after work. Many times a walk with the dog seems to include a run into a market, restaurant, or coffee shop. Now I totally understand that dog walks are a great time to think and, maybe, you suddenly remember you're out of toilet paper. Fine. But, I must be a totally overprotective mom, because I don't like to keep my crazy pooch out of my sight . . . mostly in fear that I'll come out to find him dragging the tree down the block or gone home with someone that couldn't resist his adorableness. Some states – California included – have laws that prohibit tethering dogs outside for more than a "reasonable period" which can mean up to three hours. Even though this law is mostly for backyard chaining, I'm curious how you feel about tying a pooch up outside a shop.
