The author talks about a European Union (EU) legislation that bans pets from the kitchen and eating areas in bed and breakfast (B&B) accommodations. According to the author, the reason most of her visitors book in is because they want to feel they are coming into a home, which means they expect to find pets loitering about the place. She states that a farmhouse B&B should not be listed in the same category as a hotel or restaurant, and votes in favour of allowing the pets to stay in the house.
