Why is this dog in Trader Joe’s Delray Beach … without a leash?


BOCA RATON, FL ( (Copyright © 2023 MetroDesk Media, LLC) — Rude customers in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, Boynton Beach, and across South Palm Beach County continue to be incapable of leaving their animals at home — insisting on bringing them into supermarkets where normal customers have an expectation of cleanliness and food that hasn’t been sniffed or licked by dogs.

We have three Boca Rudeton nominations today. The first is at the top of this page. A customer with a dog in Trader Joe’s in Delray Beach. The dog has no leash, and is free to run around the store. The man apparently barked at anyone who asked him about his dog.

The second is the woman below who seems to be enjoying music in her AirPods while carrying bags to pick up whatever her dog leaves behind — in the hot dog section of the WalMart in Boca Raton.

This woman, ironically shopping for hot dogs with her own dog, brought her AirPods and bags to pick up her dog’s excrement in Walmart Boca Raton.

And our third Boca Rudeton nomination belongs to the man below who felt it necessary to bring his dog to the Publix in West Delray Beach at Atlantic west of Lyons Road. Store employees apparently looked the other way, even though there are signs posted at Publix stating that bringing a dog into the store is illegal if it isn’t a trained service dog. And it’s illegal to state that your dog is trained if it is not. Federal and state penalties could apply.

Publix has huge signs reminding customers that it’s illegal to bring a dog inside, unless it’s an officially trained service dog. But that didn’t seem to matter to this man.

We remind our readers: there is no expectation of privacy in a public place. Don’t want to be seen here? Don’t be rude here! Send your submissions to us using the form, below. Boca Rudeton™ is a trademark of MetroDesk Media, LLC.
