Back in Toronto – but our return trip was not without incident. Given the fact that we were traveling with two small dogs, you’d figure I might encounter a problem going through security, maybe on the flight, possibly even at baggage claim – but Lulu and Suji were incredibly well-behaved. They sat snuggled down in their little sherpa carriers for much of the journey, solely poking their heads out once we’d exited the airport. Exhausted but really relieved, Akemi and I walked over to the taxi stand to grab a cab for for the ten minutes ride home, but there were none to be had. Oh, there were cabs there – plenty, all lined up – but none would take us because of the dogs.
Beck Taxi, Co-Op Cabs, and several others flat out refused even though the dogs were in their carrier – and it was raining.
Suji and Lulu exchange WTF? looks.
Hey, I get it. There’s no law requiring taxis to transport dogs.
Alternately, there’s no rule requiring me to ever take another taxi in Toronto.
