A strange kind of service animal

I had a first at work just now. I spent a few hours this evening sitting at the info desk, and I had a Conrad guest stop to ask me a few questions. On a leash, she had a toy poodle with painted toenails and pierced ears with fake (I hope!) diamond earrings. I wasn't going to kick her out of the Artsgarden, but I mentioned that she couldn't take the dog into the mall, as the only animals permitted were service animals. She said that the poodle was a service animal; it kept her calm and emotionally stable, and she apparently had documentation from her psychiatrist. It's a sign of our times that I truly have no idea if she was serious.....
