My grandmother never went anywhere without her dog. If Toby wasn’t welcome, she’d stay home, thank you. We could go to restaurants without Toby, but there was a preference for outdoor areas where (at one time) dogs were allowed. Might I add that Toby was very well behaved and my grandparents were educated and VERY well respected in the Greenwich, CT scene.
As a side note, when I dedicated my thesis to them, she made me put in an errata sheet that included Toby.
