    Seems strange to me...wonder what the reason is? Maybe the cert has private information regarding the person's disability?

    I dunno...service dogs are a wonderful thing, but like every good thing, it's been abused.

    We just have to be careful that in our zeal to catch the abusers, we don't restrict the rights of the rest of us.

    You are creating an imaginary problem.

    I live in a damn big metropolitan area, and I also travel to NYC frequently. I can't remember the last time I saw someone with a service dog.

    Where are all these people with fake service dogs?

    You just want another little thing to have power over the old fat women who shop on your beat at the fabric store.

    I know it is boring in there, Mannix, but aren't you going overboard?

    Mannix drove a Dodge Dart, and also a 1972 Cuda. In the last season there is a great car chase scene where Mannix uses his Cuda to run down a villain who attempts a getaway on a mobility scooter.

    Mannix forces the mobility scooter off the road and it goes over a cliff and explodes in a massive fireball at the bottom of a canyon.

    True.. But often it seems that so we don't restrict the rights of those who truly need stuff, we Don't do enough to track down and crimp on those abusing it..

    Mannix was a true crime fighter, he was a guy's guy, and a man's man. He also had a way with the ladies at the fabric store who made him a nifty sport coat out of leftover plaid.

    The cops liked him personally and put up with him professionally. But he was never on their payroll. He was on the payroll of a security firm that screwed him out of overtime, but off-duty Mannix was his own man doing his own job.

    Be it at a smoky cocktail lounge, a bowling alley or a rowdy bingo parlor, Mannix was ready to pounce on scammers of all types.

    Miscreants with sham service dogs knew better than to run their hustle around Mannix.

    I once asked Mannix exactly what these con artists had to gain by going around town with uncertified service dogs, Mannix never said anything.

    He calmly finished his drink and walked out of the bar. He was on the trail of a fat lady who tried to fleece the fabric store out of a VIP coupon.

    From what I seem to recall, some guy has this flock of ducks that make him happy. Therefor, they are service ducks. Next time you hear about some guy and a flock of ducks walking into a bar, don't dismiss this as a joke.

    You wouldn't want to have an unhappy man in a bar, do y'all?

    Happy, happy, joy, joy! Give me a bottle of whisky, kind barkeep! And a bowl of bugs, for my service ducks!

    According to the ADA, only dogs may be service animals...your state may vary.
