ABOUT: Amother has come under scrutiny after a video of her raging at a dog handler for not allowing her daughter to pet a service dog went viral.In the altercation filmed on December 19, Megan Stoff was with a golden retriever, Nala, in a busy Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania shopping mall, when a mother and her young daughter approached them.Asking if her daughter could pet the working pooch, Megan and a co-worker told the mother 'no', as petting a service dog can interfere with its training.Allegedly, just minutes later, after walking away the woman returned in a rage and began shouting at Megan and her co-workers.Meghan decided to begin filming the outburst, and the clip has since been watched more than four million times.The mother says: 'That was definitely very rude how she talked to me.'Firstly you should have a sign [saying not to touch the dog], and secondly she should not have said "no", she could've said "sorry the dog is in training", that would've been nicer.' Megan tells the woman to walk away, and points out Nala's vest has the words 'Please do not pet me I'm working' written on both sides of it, along with 'Do not touch' and 'Do not pet'.She adds that it's illegal to 'harass a service dog'.Expressing her contempt at the manner in which she was told 'no', the mother soon realizes she's being filmed and tensions escalate further when she threatens to call her lawyer.The mother continues: 'You are recording without my consent.'I

  1. Are you frequently upset by the word no? Are you one of those children who were never told NO or STOP? What a poor sorry little thing you are. I dougth you never heard negative or derogatory comments directed twords yourself. So grab hold of your big girl paints and pull them up.

  2. I completely understand service dog however there are ways of saying things. I don’t see what’s wrong with being polite about it. People are so rude and aggressive these days.

    1. No that’s a woman thinks she’s entitled to let her daughter pet a dog that has clear markings saying do not touch. The person saying no doesn’t have to sayit any certain way. No means no
