Blind woman suing nudist community that told her to get rid of service dog
In 2011, a medical condition caused Lutz, Florida woman Sharon Fowler to lose her vision. Legally blind, she had to acquire a service dog, named Laura. Ms. Fowler and her husband, Craig, moved into the Paradise Lakes Condominiums complex in 2012 with Laura. However, after they had settled in, Sharongot a letter from the propertys management that was very upsetting, as WTSP 10 News reports.
She was told that because Laura, a black Labrador, was over the 25-pound weight limit, she needed to go. This, despite Ms. Fowler providing Paradise Lakes with the proper documentation that proved Laura was a service dog. Sharon told WTSP that Paradise Lakes also claimed, [Laura] was out of control and needed to be removed off the property, or we would be fined $50 a day.
She did not mislead the community. As the Tampa Bay Times notes, Before Fowler moved into the community, she was required to fill out an application and pass a background check. She disclosed her need for Laura and the dog's weight. Her application was approved.

“Legally blind woman sues Paradise Lakes nudist resort over service dog”
That cold wet nose in the crotch is probably what done it.
The dog should sue for weight discrimination. After all, the dog is a nudist too.
If she can’t see, what’s she doing at a nudist camp?
a blind woman at a nudist resort
can you think of something dumber?
Just a couple questions....
Why is a BLIND women living in a nudist colony?
Why is someone living in a nudist colony WEARING CLOTHES?
(you saw the pictures!)
If you saw what was at that nudist camp you might wish you were blind.
If she cant see, whats she doing at a nudist camp?
= = = = = = = = = = = =
She ‘FEELS’ she belongs.
She puts a new meaning to ‘Touchy-Feely’
Of course you are NOT supposed to go to a Nudist camp to admire the Nudes.
Although there definitely are many good looking women in the Nudist Community, I would imagine that Nudists when they are being viewed by non Nudists are surprised almost as much as when they see REAL Lesbians in action, NOT the ones from the web sites or movies....
I bet she would be very ‘handsy’, wanting to touch everything.
Mom always warned that’s one of the ways to go blind.
That great feeling of freedom from clothing (I guess that feeling is not the same in your own home), or a strong need for exhibitionism even in blindness.
A. It's not hard
The kind of people who go to nudist camps make you realize the reason behind public indecency laws.
What did the blind man say when he walked passed the fish market?
Why is a blind person in a nudist colony in the first place? Doesn’t that sort of defeat the whole idea? Unless, I suppose the blind woman is an exhibitionist.
From the news story ...
“Ms. Fowler and her husband, Craig, moved into the Paradise Lakes Condominiums complex in 2012 with Laura.”
- It could have been her husband’s idea to move there.
does she own a liquor store?
I’ve never heard of an out-of-control service dog.
Why would this woman want to move into a nudist community anyway?
No, it isn't. Look at all that leather on it. It obviously wants to be in the Castro District of San Francisco.
Just look at it this way...
That was my first thought.
I’m dying over here :)
“Just look at it this way...”
Nothing to see here..
“...the dog is a nudist too.”
The canine was banned when he refused to remove his coat.
A white guy at a Spike Lee movie?
No, no, no... They dog has to go because of his bad behavior. Isn't obvious? They have no problem with the dog staring at nude people. . . or the dog being nude, but that the dog IS DRESSED!The dog has a leather fetish!
Damn, that’s a good one. Thanks for the laugh!
Did she require the other guests to wear nametags punched in braille?
Public indecency laws were written to prohibit the sort of dangling tallywackers that swing freely in city sponsored Gay Pride Parades these days without any legal crackdown.
Can't make the homosexualists feel unwanted or criminal. Nope.
Can't make illegal immigrants feel like outsiders or criminals either. Nope.
Down is up. wrong is right...
It’s probably her husband who wants to live there.
“If she cant see, whats she doing at a nudist camp?”
Not tossing her cookies.
I recall a letter sent to advice columnist, dear abby. A womans husband was trying to convince his wife to go with him to a nudist colony so that they could ogle the naked people.
I forget what dear abbys advice was to this woman, but later on abby received another letter in response from a woman who had already been through this situation. She said that her husband talked her into going to a nudist colony, thinking he was going to see naked bodies of people who practically had the bodies of supermodels. Instead, all they saw were average looking to downright ugly looking naked bodies of everyday, average people. The first one they saw was the body of an 80 something wrinkled old man jogging along while wearing nothing but sneakers and a baseball cap. After this trip, the woman said that her husband never pestered her again about going back. So, this womans advice to the first letter writer was to go. After the first time, her husband wont bother her to go there again.
While I never wanted to be a lawyer, just to handle this case (translates: collect the FEE!), I would make an exception.
She has numerous grounds for her suit, so many the colony may be renamed after the judgement.
Because these freaks all have a desire to see naked kids. If they made all nudist camps 18+, they’d be empty
And a lovely end it is.
