Notice any small cats and dogs riding the rails on Amtrak recently? One of the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America's Facebook fans did. The person told us about a recent policy change, writing: This obviously poses a huge health risk to children and adults with pet allergies, some of which may be severe or even life-threatening.

Dogs are everywhere now. In restaurants, they are on the patio. They are in grocery stores, in carts, no less. Where is the Allergic Asthma Lobby?

I've heard that said many times. But my parents had a dog for a few years before I was born and that did not keep me from being allergic to animals nor did it prevent me from developing asthma.

At the age of 50 I unknlowlingly came in contact with a dog and had a bad asthma attack. Since then my allergies have not calmed down.
