I wasn't being aggressive - I'm 6ft 1ins and 15st but I'm not aggressive. I was trying to show the staff member the ID, which was hanging from Zen's lead, but she just told me to get out. I went to the check-out to pay but then the manager came up to me and said 'dogs aren't allowed in the store, unless they're guide dogs'.
Purpose and a place for a service dog | As I See It
Kent Reporter-8 hours ago
Our leaders in this country decided there should be a legal, living helper for disabled individuals. They would be similar to companions or, as we call them, seeing eye dogs that the folks with limited sight have had walking next to them for many years. Remembering as a kid, we marveled at the dog with the handle ...
"Possibly"  :rolleyes:

Hey, at least someone is looking into it. Hopefully something good comes of this.

Okay, so tonight I decided to try again with the toothpaste. He got all excited again when he saw the tube. I put some on my finger and offered it to him. Honestly...the face he made was hilarious! He licked it and his face literally screwed up and he started working his tongue trying to spit it out. There was still some squeezed out on the end of the tube, though. He sniffed at it, and licked it up. He seemed to enjoy it that time. So I put some more on my finger and offered it again. He licked it up and asked for more!

So, in Max's case, it appears that Arrow was right and it was an acquired taste, haha. It reminded me of this: have you ever gone to drink something, expecting one thing, only for it to be something else? For example, you see a glass with purple liquid and take a sip expecting, I dunno, grape juice, but it turns out to be cranberry juice and it grosses you out for a minute, because it wasn't what you were expecting. But now that you know it's cranberry juice, you drink it again and realize that it actually does taste good. I can't help but wonder if something similar happened with Max.

In any case, I'll call it a win!
The only thing I can think of is that they told the restaurant this and then the restaurant still demanded paper work and didn't believe them. I mean, if they didn't follow the 'you can't ask for paperwork' rule then why would they follow the 'paperwork is invalid' rule. Though yes, it does seem silly that the family would know not to register the dog on a scam site but then do it just to resolve access disputes... Actually, isn't that what most sites claim? "Register with us and you will have less issues bring your dog places"

I don't know. It all seems pretty odd.
That line bothered me too. How is the paper a fake but this mysterious online version not?
This part of the article bothered me:  "My Mom walked over and tried to calmly explain to her the situation and that she was a service dog, and the manager was like 'no, we need to see paper work.' My Mom, who is very educated on this, tried to explain that anyone can show you a piece of paper, you can order fake certificates offline without a dog going through training," Merritt explained. "My Mom provided her with the link to the registration for service dogs and said 'you can look online and see Whisky is registered.'

What registration is she referring to, and why would a business trust that when they have just been told that "anyone can show you a piece of paper"? 

I will also say that the fact that the dog appears to be a husky is also probably not working in their favor.  It's a non-standard service dog breed, and one known for being very furry... not the kind of dog you want to have in a restaurant generally.
So... what does a case like this mean in setting precedent?  If I read the summary correctly, the condo board was asserting that the tenant didn't really have a medical issue (based on her being able to snowboard and hold down multiple jobs), and was using "it's a seizure alert dog" to sneak a pet into a no-pets building.  I assume that the tenant was arguing that they were in fact disabled and needed the service dog.  If it settles, is it like the case never happened at all?  Or can it be used in future cases?

I'm with summertime on this. I use my kid's bubblegum flavored toothpaste and go to town with a regular soft bristle toothbrush. She doesn't have to enjoy it, she just has to not get angry with me. Her attitude so far has been, "why is this thing in my mouth and why are you keeping me from licking it?" Which I take as a positive and carry on. She puts up with so many of my shenanigans. As long as max doesn't learn to resent the toothbrush, he's fine not liking it. They don't have to like getting manicured, either, but it's gonna get done no matter what.

Also remember dogs LOVE disgusting trash so as long as your dog doesn't show a form of repulsion it's likely he doesn't mind the taste and it's the funky texture he's taking issue with.
