I think dogs are the most amazing creatures; they give unconditional love.

For me they are the role model for being alive.

Man Sues Petsmart For $1 Million After Stepping In Dog Poop
from the Consumerist

When visiting a pet store that allows leashed pets to visit, is it unreasonable to keep an eye out for dog poop? Inside the store? The Virginian-Pilot reports that a man is suing Petsmart in federal court after slipping and falling on a pile of feces in a Norfolk, Va. store. He alleges that the fall exacerbated his existing back injury and knocked out four of his false teeth.

“Holloway, of Poquoson, went to the Jefferson Avenue PetSmart on Jan. 18, 2009. The suit says that PetSmart and the manager should have protected him from harm.
The suit says PetSmart and its employees "negligently allowed animals to enter the premises and deposit feces in such a manner as to create a dangerous and hazardous condition."

The employees either should have known there was a pile of feces on the floor, or if they did know, they should have cleaned it up before Holloway stepped in it, the suit says.”

Why was that man in Petsmart, if he was going to react so badly to scat. Silly humans.
