    Default Dog greets customers at BP station

    You pull up at the drive-thru window for gas at the BP station at US 19 at Nursery Road in Clearwater and what do you see?

    The tongue-flapping grin of a happy chocolate Labrador retriever named Cody, reports tampabay.com.
    And the customers love it.

    "He hears the bell and goes running. When he pops up, that sets it off," said Karim Mansour, the store's and dog's owner. "Uncontrollable giggling."
    It started five months ago when Mansour decided to bring his dog to work. The dog got free rein of the store, and, as a joke, Mansour put a shirt with a BP logo on Cody and gave him a name tag.
    Says Mansour: "While he's here, he's an employee. My rule is, 'All employees need to wear the shirt.' "

    Just look at him in his little BP shirt. He is one handsome boy.
    I'd buy a car just to get gas and visit him.

    I'd be going there just to see him! If you do go back, I hope you can take a photo and post it here.

    Cody has to go...



    Agency says gas station's dog must go

    Cody, a 5-year-old Labrador, is not on the payroll but does have his own work shirt and name tag.
    PINELLAS COUNTY (Bay News 9) -- Cody, a 5-year-old Labrador, who has been working at the BP station at US 19 and Nursery in Clearwater, is about to lose his job.
    He's not on the payroll but does have his own work shirt and name tag.
    Inspectors with the State Department of Agriculture cited the owner, Karim Mansour, telling him Cody has to go. They say animals aren't allowed in places that sell food.
    "I understand the state has a job to do which is to keep people safe," Mansour said. "But at the same time I don't prepare food here, everything comes from the factory, pre-packaged. I don't see how a dog hair is going to get in a bag of chips or a Snickers bar."
    More On The Story

    Mansour says he started bringing Cody to work for companionship and protection.
    He says no customers have ever complained to him about the dog being there. He says he is looking into his options but for the time being plans to heed the warning and leave Cody home.
    According to the FDA, dogs can be allowed in stores under certain circumstances as long as no food contamination can result.
