I couldn't help but laugh at the decision by the New York City health department to ban dogs from a Brooklyn bar ["Bar owner says city should let dogs in," News, Oct. 30]. The health department said it is impossible to know whether a dog has been immunized or is healthy.
If those are actually the criteria for frequenting a pub, it's likely more than half the patrons would have to leave. Maybe the city should warn the dogs!
