Very Cherry Creek

I had business in Cherry Creek yesterday and went to a coffee shop there. The sign at Peets on 2nd Avenue was very Cherry Creek. It informed customers that dogs weren't allowed in the store due to health code, even if you are carrying your dog with the exception of guide dogs and other helping dogs.

The policy is good, but in only a few places is it customary to carry your dog, and few places are enlightened enough to know that dogs serve medical purposes such as alerting owners to epilepsy fits and maintaining mental health, as well as serving as guides for the blind.
