Finally, Michigan's government is passing a bill that we can all get behind.

A bill that was introduced back in February would allow people to bring their four-legged friend with them to a patio restaurant. WDIV reports that the bill passed Michigan's Senate vote today with 36 yeas and 6 nays.

The bill has to go through Michigan's House and then signed by Gov. Rick Snyder before you can officially bring your pooch with you to your favorite patio hangout.

There will be some general rules of course for when you bring a dog to a patio restaurant. For instance, dogs cannot walk through the interior of the restaurant, they cannot sit on a chair at the table, and they must be behaved.
