Daily Rant&Rave: Doughnuts for marathoners

RAVE  To the wonderful volunteers at Sunday’s Seattle Marathon who cautioned us about black ice in tricky areas, and double raves to volunteers who supplied Krispy Kreme doughnuts at mile 10. You all rock!
RANT To self-absorbed people who abuse the concept and rules regarding service dogs and bring their pets to stores, offices, airports and other public venues. A legitimate service animal is trained to assist a person with a disability; being a dog and providing comfort and emotional support is an inherent attribute, not a trained function that the dog does. I love my dog too, but leave it home or take it for walks.
