I had my appointment at the outpatient department in the hospital today and when making my appointment for next week there was a elderly-ish couple before me with a dog booking in to be seen. I don't think the dog was a therapy dog as it didn't have a coat or harness on stating that it was and it was also very giddy. They weren't bringing it to visit a patient as they were in outpatients and they had booked in so they weren't in the wrong place. Does anyone find this odd and Bizarre......I love my dog to bits but wouldn't even think about taking him to hospital with me,I was quite bewildered by seeing a dog there....it's the last place I would expect to see one. The man behind me thought it was disgraceful and He complained to the reception who looked like they were just as bewildered as me TBH. Not sure what happened next as I made my appointment and left. So are dogs allowed in hospitals?? I would imagine guide dogs are but not a blooming pet dog.
