Just wanted to say that I am astonished by the list of places that are dog friendly in other states! Here in MN a dog friendly place is the exception not the rule. Home Depot and Lowe's have always had huge signs posted saying only service animals are allowed and Nordstroms? Not gonna happen in MN. Mall of America staff would chase a dog and owner out in a heartbeat. Until I read this list I had no idea I lived in such a dog unfriendly place! About the only place in MN a dog is welcome are the pet stores and eating establishments with an outdoor seating area...and even many of those won't allow a dog on the patio.
