I hope the owner has lost his business, this is no way to treat a veteran or any disabled person.

S & N, thanks, my friend. I don't know if there are laws to keep dogs out of restaurants, but if there is, there should be exceptions for service dogs.

In Australia we have laws to keep dogs out of just about everywhere
but not for service dogs, they have entry EVERYWHERE!

Done. A shame : this Veteran gave his life for America; today he needs to be helped by a dog. The attitude of the owner of the restaurant is a shame and an insult not only to this Veteran but to all the Braves who served their country. This servor does not merit to be alive thanks of all the Sacrifices !

Thanks for the whole story "Russell Ireland, owner of Big I's in Oxford, told Air Force veteran James Glaser and his dog, Jack, to leave the diner Saturday. Ireland said at the time that he didn't really believe Jack was a service dog because Glaser allowed people to pet and feed it, unlike the service dogs he has seen with other customers." Maybe you should treat it as a service dog, not a fmily pet, and other will also.

Why not, his dog was well behaved so why not allow him in. People are weird, its like they are becoming more and more alienated from nature and animals.
Not letting James and Jack in was extremely bad manners in my opinion.
