“It’s not my intent to destroy a restaurant, but it’s certainly my intent to make them aware you have violated a law.” Those are the words of Major Diggs Brown, who spent over 30 years in the U.S. Army. Suffering with PTSD, he and his service dog, Arthur, entered a restaurant in Chicago for breakfast. That’s when the trouble began.
The waitress at the Cochon Volant informed Major Brown he was not allowed to have a dog in the restaurant. Though he told her it was legal, the waitress didn’t care and told him to leave.
He left the restaurant, felt humiliated, and then came home to post on his Facebook page about the incident. The manager called him to apologize.
Further, the restaurant posted that training under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) would take place for all their employees. They are also making a donation to Puppies Behind Bars.
Brown does not want the waitress fired, just educated. We are happy to hear of the positive outcome for this situation and thank the Major for his service.
