To the woman with the northern accent who snobbishly walked by me (and my pup) in a boutique this afternoon and looked at her daughter and said “they allow DOGS in shops here?”
Listen, Charleston is a very dog-friendly city. My pup didn’t do anything but smile at you and your daughter. Dogs are part of the culture here. Dogs are man’s (and woman’s) best friend and personally I think it’s great that most of my favorite stores downtown let me bring my girl along; and honestly you can go back to whatever town you came from if you don’t like it.
