    What’s the cost of getting a “story” like this posted on FooBooz?

  • no

    Cool, I’ll continue not to dine here ever, since I don’t want my food contaminated by dog hair and/or fleas.

  • New Zooksabelly

    Just another hotel bar/restaurant

  • Perhopper

    It is a great restaurant and hotel. People who take their dogs to brunch, would not allow them to have fleas for goodness sake. And besides, it is served outside. Not very sophisticated are we?

      “People who take their dogs to brunch, would not allow them to have fleas for goodness sake.”

      Really? Is there a proof for that? People who take there dogs for a meal outside generally have their dogs outside. Where do dogs get fleas, ticks and worms? You make it sound like it’s definitive that if someone takes their dogs for a meal at an outdoor restaurant they don’t have any of the above.

      • Perhopper

        No, no proof. My point was, that most people who care enough to take “their” dog with them to lunch, they more than likely care enough to provide flea , tick and heart worm protection. My dog lives inside, but I still provide all of the above. You seem quite angry about something. Hope you get over it.

        • JA

          LOL, I didn’t ask where your dog lived! My dog lives inside – BUT – she does spend a lot of time outside. Although she gets all the same treatments you give your dog…she’s had fleas, ticks and worms. Point is that these are all common things for dogs that aren’t cooped up inside. Usually owners don’t know their dogs have these things until after the fact. No anger here…just a disdain for blanket statements that are unfounded.

          • Perhopper

            Very surprised that you have a dog. Ending this here. Have a great life.

          • Dan

            JA, you are the biggest wet blanket here. And that really is saying something. Hopefully this is just an online persona thingy.

  • Jimmy

    @JA – What’s “FooBooz?”

    • JA

      A platform for Philadelphia Magazine to highlight it’s advertisers?

  • This is adorable! To be fair I’d probably eat Calie’s Stew too…
