Letter: Dogs could affect hygiene standards

Mac the dalmation enjoys a splash at the seaside - but should he be allowed in the town's cafes?

I must support Mrs J Thornton’s comments in your letters column regarding dogs in cafes.

Frankly I do not understand how some cafe owners get away with displaying their 5 and 4 star hygiene ratings.

My recent visit to a well-known Whitby cafe saw me watching the waitress patting and stroking a dog then proceeding to serve me without washing her hands.

No thank you.

I walked out.
