      No. I don't want to take my pet to work and certainly don't want to have a random selection of other animals, making whatever noises and smells they make, all around me. Truth be told if a place I worked introduced a policy like that I'd be talking to farmer friends with a view to taking my "pet cow" to work one day. Either that or I'd get my hands on an enormous python or some such.

      It's the sort of thing that seems like a fun idea until the lawsuits start - all it takes is one employee's dog to bite another.

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      My husband, a Pastor, has been known to take the dog with him to the church. She really enjoys going with him.

      That is so sweet! I bet she helps out too if a member comes in for counseling and is upset. Dogs are so good at comforting people.

      ... as long as the people in question don't hate dogs, aren't allergic to dogs, aren't scared of dogs, etc...

      For people who like animals, animals can be a really good thing. But not everybody interacts with animals the same way, and an allergy or phobia thrown in breaks the whole idea. For me personally, if I went looking for counselling and found there was a dog in the room I'd most likely walk right on out and find a different counsellor. I don't even have allergies or phobias of dogs, I just don't much care for them.

      I really doubt that her husband would force anyone to remain in the room (where the dog is) if they had allergies or were completely terrified.

      I'm sure he wouldn't, I was just commenting on the idea that dogs are a universally good thing. The notion that "dogs are always good at comforting people" (emphasis mine) is very dependent on the person and the dog. Some folks love dogs, others hate them.

      Of course part of the problem is that sometimes you don't know if someone will have a reaction to a dog (allergic, phobic or whatever else) until they enter the room and see it there.
