necessary. The dog is medically necessary. The MARKINGS are a
courtesy to those charged with keeping pets out of no-pets sites.
The balancing act here is to courteously not intrude on other people's
enjoyment with something obviously out of period, like his mundane
embroidered nylong backpack, while still making it clear enough to the
terribly harassed person who is trying to make sure the rules are
followed and we may, in fact, use the site again that I am no threat,
and that she doesn't need to spend a lot of time arguing with me about
whether or not the dog is allowed.
Rest assured that I would not consider compromising something
medically necessary for the sake of authenticity . . . but I do want
to make it minimally intrusive. Standard disclaimer about these being
my standards for me, not ones that I would attempt to apply to anybody
else. I'm not trying to beat it to death, just to find independent
opinions on a particular proposed balance.
