I was at the East Lansing Arts Festival earlier this month and noticed several dogs there, as I often see at that festival and others.  Check out the Op-Ed piece that ran in the Lansing State Journal yesterday regarding dogs at the Arts festival this year.  I also heard that more than one dog 'left a present' in the middle of the pedestrian walkway at the festival and didn't bother to clean it up.

Do you bring your dog to big events with a lot of people or leave your furry friend at home?
