Veteran and Service Dog Booted From Chicago Restaurant

Maj. Diggs Brown, from Fort Collins, Colorado, was in Chicago along with his PTSD service dog, a black Lab named Arthur Barker Black, participating in a walk to raise awareness for veterans with disabilities.

Brown and his service dog went to Chicago restaurant, Cochon Volant, where he was told by a manager that he couldn’t enter the restaurant because of his dog.

After explaining that Arthur Barker Black was a service dog, Brown was seated, but only for a moment before another restaurant employee told him to leave.

Instead of enjoying a nice meal at Cochon Volant, Brown instead ate a hot dog at the airport. The restaurant has since issued an apology and made a donation to the organization that trained Brown’s service dog.
