Sarasota Doggie Dining

The Sarasota Herald Tribune's Patrick Whittle is reporting that the county's restaurants have gone to the dogs. Restaurants in the unincorporated areas of the county can pay $150 for a "doggy dining permit," the County Commission decided Tuesday. The permit allows dogs "in designated outdoor portions of public food service establishments." Residents attended Tuesday's meeting with pictures of their dogs hanging around their necks. They met with little resistance from the County Commission, which unanimously approved the law.
