    Airplanes are owned by private companies that can do whatever they want with service dogs.... not sure why these snowflakes are so bent out of shape about a business and a couple enacting their freedom to own whatever size service dog they want

    Why can't Scooby fly like everyone else? He's almost human after all.

    I don't know about you, but I would rather not be deaf.

    Being born deaf is really shitty, but if losing it later on in life, it becomes my most expendable sense.

    Smell or taste? Scarfing down those veggies would be much easier, meanwhile with smell, your primary concern would be gas leaks and proper hygiene to ensure you don't smell bad.

    Curious where you stand on airlines vs fat people.. Who is more free? The airline saying you're too fat for their plane, or the fat person enacting their freedom to be fat?
    How about if the airline refused the dog? Then who stands for freedom?

    From that same site;
    There is no way to determine if an animal is a service dog under the ADAs definition.

    Anyone who punches a dog, except in self-defence, should be killed on the spot.

    I like dogs on principal. Humans I can take or leave.

    I see the person involved in the altercation claimed to be allergic to dogs. Whether he actually is or not, it raises the question of whose disability takes precedent?

    The catch is that if you lose smell, you've lost most of your taste too. In school I think most kids had a class where you plug your nose, then taste, without biting, apples and potatoes, I think it was.
    I guess recalling a song is far more satisfying than recalling the smell and taste of a cheeseburger.

    Great Danes are usually pretty laid back but I'm surprised the dog didn't react when the altercation got physical.

    I'm allergic to dogs, can I get a service lizard, or maybe a tiny person in a master blaster scenario. Why not? Society is an absurd comedy.

    Well sure, I get that, however whatever may be the case, its kinda a moot point, its about the ease of designating your pet as a medical/psychological tool and cheating the system to get it on a plane.

    If the person actually was allergic to dogs it should have been brought up to a flight attendant at the begging of the flight. Nothing besides defending yourself from attack warrants punching a fucking dog.

    Not to worry. We'll have service fat people. I can hear the commercials already.

    I have fat service vests and muumuus for your fat service mouth. Hoes recognize.

    My Uncle has a service dog that he takes everywhere, including flights. It's a poodle. The reason being is that he supposedly has PTSD from killing a guy in Afghanistan...

    I think being deaf is a much better excuse to have a service dog.
