Service Dog Banned from Lunch Hall

A deaf-blind student has withdrawn from her school in Berkshire, UK after her service dog was barred from the school's cafeteria. The principal of Mary Hare School for the Deaf says another student is allergic to Molly Watt's black Labrador-retriever named Unis. Molly's mother says no one at the school has shown her evidence of the other student's allergy. Molly was born deaf and is slowly losing her sight because of has Usher Syndrome. The deaf-blind charity Sense named Molly the Young Deafblind Person of the Year 2010. A petition has been signed on Molly's behalf by more than 1000 people. Here's a video Molly recorded last year, explaining her condition.
