Yes. Service animals are required to be under the owner’s control at all times. So the dog cannot chase and attack you and be exempt from the law.

I'm not sure what difference the death certificate makes. In Colorado, the Personal Representative controls disposition of the decedent's assets.

At my job, FOH employees are paid tipped minimum wage- $9.30. FOH employees receive tips, which are pooled and also shared with management and BOH employees, of which both groups receive at least minimum wage or higher.
