How strict is the No Pets policy? I was just at Lowe's last night. The sign on the door says "Service Animals Only," but I asked an employee, and he said I could bring Bailey into the store. I did, she was great, and made a lot of friends.
would suggest it is QUITE strict. It appears the policy is in place primarily to protect wildlife. I can understand that: the last squirrel Bailey got her chompers on lived only about 12 seconds.
Keeping dogs on a leash would seem to solve that problem, though. The article says they tried a leash rule, but people did not abide by it. And they did not pick up their dogs' crap. Sounds like age old scenario of a few douchebags ruining things for everyone else.
Any informed answers to these parking- and pet-related questions will be greatly appreciated.
I understand where you're coming from, but I would argue that since Metro just spent tens of thousands of dollars on this course for us that we support that effort by simply paying the $5.00 or by buying the annual pass for $40. If they immediately see a benefit from this project then the chances of us getting a chance to do this again somewhere will be that much better.
No pets. None. Please don't bring them. The last thing we want at this point is people ignoring the rules. Hopefully people will respect this park and its rules. If we do that... then we won't end up with another Columbia View situation
