    Yeah, its good place...and just not for your home improvement needs! ;):lolbangtable:

    Last time I took Uallis there, I was constantly getting stopped by people asking to pet him and several people asked if they could get their pictures taken with him. It was neat.

    A picture from one of the many times I've taken Uallis there...the woman in it was just a random worker that was in the Lowe's break room, I have no idea who she is, but she LOVED Uallis!

    If there's not a sign prohibiting pets or there's not food sold I consider the place fair game. What's the worst they can do? Ask us to leave? And me never to spend another dime there?

    Anyplace someone can take their little dog I will take my big dog -- well, except a place full of breakable stuff on low shelves, lol. Kharma's good about not hitting anything, but no sense tempting fate.

    Wow I had no idea you could take dogs to Lowes! We just bought our first house so we are there ALLLLLLLLLLL the time lol! So you actually bring the dogs inside and not just in the outisde section?

    I take my dogs INSIDE the store...I've never had a problem. :D

    Yup. Inside :) Every now and then someone with a doginapurse will give her a nasty look while their doginapurse barks and snarls and tries to get to her and people get a kick out of how well behaved she is and her look of dismissal. :D

    I took her in when she was three months old and there was a woman with two Chis there. They were snarling and going crazy and crawling all over the woman trying to get loose to get to Kharma and everyone was remarking on how awful they were and what a sweet, well mannered puppy she was.

    Little did they know . . . BWUAHAHAHAAAA!!!!

    Did anyone ask first? Or did you just give it a shot? lol

    I was reading dogs in public etiquette.... and no offensive to you guys, but it says you should always ask first if there are no signs.... I just dont think I would have the guts to just walk in lol I would feel like they were coming after me for bring in my HUGE MEAN looking dogs LOL

    There's plenty of places to bring your dog, i bring mine everywhere, worst they can do is kick you out.

    I personally would ask first but I figured since the trainer at the Petsmart next door to the Lowe's suggested the venue that she'd had first hand experience with a dog-friendly policy there. Would be bad for neighborly relations for her to recommend it otherwise :)

    Well thank you everyone for the drool advise.... and our off topic subject of lowes LOL....

    This has all brought something new to my attention and I will be posting a new post about it!

    Thanks again!

    As long as your dog is well behaved there's no reason for it to be a breach of etiquette :)

    My standard is that anywhere a little dog can go, so can my big one. I don't take chances with places where there's a lot of breakable stuff though, lol! One swipe of the tail . . . . even though Kharma's never broken anything.

    Oh, and when I get together with some friends at a little pub that has outdoor seating I take Kharma. It's hysterical to watch other people. One night there were two guys there with a really cute little Scottie pup that they were using to try to pick up girls (and trust me, these guys needed all the help they could get, 45+ trying to pick up college girls -- ick) but when Kharma came in the girls all came over to see her, lol! And I will have to say, Kharma is a guy magnet ;)

    My Lowe's & Home Depot only allow dogs if they are therapy/service/etc. dogs.

    The dogs I have that drool love to drink their water and use us as their towels!

    Haha... it is indeed coming. The more the jowls droop, the worse it will get. I have only been around one growing up (the dog), but you will definitely start getting some serious drool action sometime between one and two years.

    And just as a warning. Their drool will remove wood stain, paint, etc. (Do not paint ANYTHING in eggshell paint!) And since you live in (hot) Texas (like I do), definitely make sure you do not forget to clean it off your car's dashboard, window sills, etc! It will cook in and leave a mark.

    Cleaning it off the ceiling... haha... I have been on a ladder a few times myself :)

    I cannot think of a more perfect breed to conduct classical conditioning experiments with than a mastiff. Uttering the phrase "piece of cheese" in a closed vehicle was always strictly forbidden!

    Even though my Fila doesn't drool on anywhere near the scale of your English, I am glad to have 10 foot ceilings. She may sling some up there at some time, but it's high enough that I can't see it :D

    I just read about the eggshell paint. Why didn't someone tell the guy who built this house to paint the walls a different color! I get drool off if seems asap. If I don't notice it till it's dry, I have to touchup with paint after cleaning.

    Haha, well, he's 6 months old now and he occasionally drools after drinking. Usually it ends up on my pants, because his MO is to come put his head on my lap whenever he is not sleeping, eating, or pooping.

    I should have named him Cody because he is a seriously co-dependent dog :)
