Texas might be about to go to the dogs, and that’s not a bad thing. As the Wichita Falls Times Record News reports (say that three times fast!), the Lone Star State Senate passed a bill last week that would make it legal for eateries to allow dogs on outdoor patios, provided they were “well-behaved and well-controlled.” As a dog lover who takes his dog anywhere and everywhere possible, I say huzzah. And as a person who loves to enjoy a nice quiet meal on a restaurant patio, I say the same rules ought to apply to children and frat boys.
