Sometime during the early aughts, toting around your dog in your purse became acceptable social behavior (along with texting during dinner and talking about Twilight). As a result, itĀ seems more and more restaurants started bending health code rules to please overly entitled "pooch pushers" who insist on dragging their smelly mutts around with them 24/7. Don't get us wrong, we love animals, we just don't need to eat dinner next to them. Still not convinced that this trend has gone too far? There are restaurants now offering doggy menus. (We rest our case.)
