Boca Rudeton™ Returns, Documenting The Rude And Oblivious In And Around Boca

This dog in a Starbucks in West Boca Raton had no reason to be there, according to a reader.


BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2021 MetroDesk Media, LLC) (News App readers click here) — In a sign that normalcy is slowly but surely starting to return, entitled dog owners are back — believing everyone wants their dog in a supermarket, in a salon, or in this case, Starbucks.

Thanks to a reader, we can see what is identified as a non-service dog in a West Boca Raton Starbucks. The dog, notably, is on a very long leash.

If you missed it during the pandemic, airlines now prohibit fake ESA dogs (emotional support animals), under federal law. The only animals allowed are legitimate service animals whose service status is documented days in advance.

Despite signs prohibiting animals in area stores, customers are back — bringing their pets where they shouldn’t be, like Starbucks.

If you see an animal in a store where it is not explicitly welcomed, please let us know. Use the form, below. If you are reading in a news app, just click here.

Boca Rudeton™ is our feature highlighting the rude and oblivious in and around Boca. We remind our readers that there is no expectation of privacy in a public place. If you don’t want to be seen here, don’t be rude here.
