There are real consequences when people try to pass off their pets as service dogs. What happened this week in a Florida restaurant is an excellent example.
A married couple, Dr. Richard Davis and Lior Sher, went into Maggie Mae’s restaurant in Clearwater, Florida, for a meal, and they were almost immediately told to leave because of their service dogs. Davis, a former naval surgeon who lost 70 percent of his hearing, uses the dog to alert him of things that he might otherwise miss as a result of his disability. Sher declined to talk to the press about her disability.
