Dogs TTC

Should dogs be allowed to sit on seats on the TTC?

An experience on the TTC the other day raised the question of whether dogs should be allowed to sit on seats. At the time, I was watching a dog owner sit his pooch next to him on a half empty streetcar. The dog was small. It looked like a pomeranian. But I got to thinking whether there should be rules and conditions that stipulate whether dogs can be promoted from their usual position on the floor. Does dog size matter? Is it ok if the seat isn't in use? Should other passengers be consulted for permission?

Such was the inspiration for today's poll on Twitter where we asked our followers to respond to the very question posed above. Here's a selection of the responses.
