Home Depot (7 Corners) bans dogs! Mr. Magoo tried to shop there and was denied entry.

When he was snubbed he experienced all of the emotions any of us would have. At first he was just astonished and confused. He had always been welcomed in the best places. Café Milano and Billy Martin’s Tavern welcome him with fresh bowls of water.

The best stores in Georgetown greet him as a long lost friend. He did his Christmas shopping at Streets of Georgetown and Tumi Luggage — and they have hardwood floors and sell expensive leather goods and clothing – not dusty cement floors stacked with lumber and bricks.

After the initial shock, Mr. Magoo felt hurt and depressed. The extent of the psychological damage is yet to be measured. I’ve talked with other people who live with dogs and learned many of them also suffered the snub.

When asked how the ban made him feel, Bones, the Labrador retriever, said it saddened him so much it that even having the owner of his favorite Bodega give him a whole sausage didn’t lift his spirits m. But it did help a little that the owner listened – like therapy. Still he couldn’t smile.

Joe, the golden retriever who resides at Silverbrook Farm, Hillsboro, VA, was nonplussed. “I live in an 18th century bed and breakfast, for goodness sake. I’m practically a plantation owner. There is no human on earth who doesn’t want me.” But he went on, showing his newfound insecurity, “Is there?”

 Sammy and Lucky, Jack Russell terrier brothers, weren’t bothered, “We’ll go in, grab a few sticks, and get out before they know what hit them.” That is unless Sammy bites someone’s ankle.”

           After Mr. Magoo was comforted with treats at Old Pearson’s Wine and Spirits, and got love from the staff at Ace Hardware, he felt a little better. But he has made the commitment to support only those businesses that support dogs.
