Yep. I donít really see anything ďcuteĒ about it. Some people, like me, donít like to be around strange dogs. I donít inflict my animals on anyone else, and I would appreciate it if others would show the same courtesy.

No, I just have a strong intolerance for those who decide to break the rules and make it harder for those with legitimate service animals. I'm actually a massive pet lover, I am just sick to death of people bringing their pets into places that they are not allowed to at the expense of those with legitimate service animals. Some rules are not meant to be broken and this is one of them. Once I realized this was not in a park, I thought it was a cute picture.

I'm totally fine with the dog. If dogs aren't allowed at Disney, I'm absolutely not fine with the owner.

Disney Springs may be a gray area. It's private property, but it's not in a park or resort. Still, dog is not going to wander through DS for an hour or more without peeing some place and I don't see DS set up for that.

Parks, resorts that permit dogs, and Disney Spring all have relief areas for service dogs trained to use such areas. Is the random dog so trained? I know mine will definitely mark his journey along the way, not matter how much I tug him along not to. He would also be miserable in the heat and hot concrete, so he wouldn't be there in the first place.

And I'll add that dogs are NOT people. They are NOT our kids. They are pets and animals yet it is a growing trend to be treating our dogs as our kids. I get loving our pets and taking great care of them but, no, they don't want to wear dumbo ears to take a photo in front of the castle...no, they don't get the feels about doing that like our 5 year old human child might. In a HOT CROWDED PARK on the HOT PAVEMENT. No, they don't want to fly in an airplane in a seat next to us and sit in a hotel room and treck through a hot park. They'd rather stay at Aunt Karen's with her 2 dogs and a backyard with squirrels...or stay at doggie resort with dog runs and treats and humans to give pats once in a while.

Truth be told, I'm also tired of people thinking their kids are the best things in the world and we should all be amused by them too. Too many people think their loves should be our loves. I'm kind of over it.

I love pets, but I also think they should be at home or well cared for - that's where they are the happiest usually. Service animals are a different ballgame though. Those owners are different though than usual pet owners.

I do think that Disney Springs is okay for dogs? If I'm wrong, then I'm wrong. I don't mind them there if they are allowed.

I donít have a problem with actual service dogs. Iíve never ever had one jump all over me or try to be my new best friend. The ones Iíve encountered were well behaved to the point that you could actually forget they were there.

Are they allowed at Disney Springs? I donít know. But itís not a grassy park where you could play fetch or just hang out. Itís a glorified shopping mall. And when was the last time a dog asked itís owner to go to the mall? I donít care for strange dogs, as Iíve said. But the problem lies with the owner who is dragging the animal places that they would likely rather not be, not with the dog.

Looks like a staged photo op to me. I see no drooling on apples and no harm done.
