But when exactly did it become OK for the non-blind to take dogs on the subway? I have seen this phenomenon twice this week. I get on the train, see the dog, and immediately think, Blind person. You are not allowed to silently hate them or their dog, even though dogs are not known for holding their bladders in enclosed spaces.
Then, the "blind person" checks his BlackBerry. At which point I think, You had better be doing some braille texting, my friend, or you have some 'splaining' to do.
I'm sorry, but dogs are not okay on public transportation. Until they learn to not shit whenever they feel like it. Then they can ride with me.
