Scoring & Annotations

I think that the new law is necessary because lets say if you have a snake as a seeing eye pet and you and the snake walk into a restaurant. An old lady sees the snake and screams not knowing that its a seeing eye pet causing other people to turn their heads around and scream too. Now everyone leaves the restaurant and the restaurant might go out of business Or another example is that you walk into a hotel with your seeing eye pet, a monkey. All the sudden the monkey goes mad for who knows what reason because monkeys do that. The monkey runs around the hotel and wrecks a bunch of expensive things that now you have to pay for. A dog for instance is more predictable and more easy to handle. Also animals like that might spread disease.

The new law is good because it keeps other people and the seeing eye pet’s owner safe. Even though another animal may be more fun I would rather be safe then sorry.
