The other day two women walked by me at the mall Customer Service desk. One of them was carrying a large purse over her shoulder. When she got closer I noticed the purse sides were made out of mesh, and one of them was open a little bit. I realized it wasn't a purse, but a doggie tote. The only animals that are supposed to be in the mall are service dogs.
As they headed towards an inconspicuous spot just past the desk the woman pulled out a leash. Next I saw her unfolding a small blue absorbent pad and heard her say to her friend, "Let's see if she needs to go". At that point I stopped watching and called Security to tell them there was a dog doing its business in the mall.
Unfortunately the women were gone by the time an officer arrived. I would have liked to heard the conversation that ensued.
