My dog has never done this
A reader who is a manager for one of the country’s large airlines at a major airport shared this recent ‘dog poop in the terminal’ story,
Hey Gary, on the heels of your dog poop story, you’d probably appreciate this story:
A lady was DRAGGING her [emotional support animal] across the floor at […] to the point that it was leaving a trail of little poop nuggets. Another passenger tried to get her attention behind her and she yelled, “MIND YOUR OWN DAMNED BUSINESS!”
I chased her down, stopped in front of her, stopped her in her tracks, and asked her politely to pick up after her dog.
When she replied with, What do you mean?! I might have gotten a little too gruff being a manager and all but snipped back with, “Ma’am, pick up your dog’s poop! NOW!”
She sheepishly went to the restroom (she didn’t carry any bags) to get some towels and clean up.
Sure this is an airplane lav but I don’t take photos in airport restrooms
Now if that were the end of the story, it would just be every day at the airport. But this manager doesn’t tolerate terminal-pooping purported emotional support animals.
When she got back, I then informed her that it was clear that her dog was not well trained and therefore could not travel on the flight; we allowed her to rebook for the next day, but I added comments to her PNR that she needed to pay the in-cabin pet fee and go buy an underseat kennel. And she wasn’t local.
