OXFORD (CBS) – Protesters are planning to target a diner in Oxford that refused to serve a veteran and his service dog.

Demonstrators plan to picket outside Big I’s Diner Saturday morning after owner Russell Ireland told James Glaser last week that his service dog was not welcome in the restaurant.

Ireland later apologized for offending veterans but said Glaser and Jack are still not welcome in his diner.

“This is a post-traumatic stress dog to give him emotional support. How much emotional support do you need when you’re eating breakfast?” he told WBZ-TV’s Christina Hager on Monday.
