Virgin Atlantic says that it only allows dogs to be carried as emotional support pets.
British Airways, meanwhile, says that it has had no increase in requests - because it doesn't allow passengers to bring any emotional support animals on board.

Blind man with phobia of dogs given new lease of life thanks to UK’s first GUIDE HORSE
the guy's name is mohammed, so I'm wondering if it's an actual phobia or just muslims viewing dogs as impure and avoiding contact with them

"Old school" Hollywood did not expose dogs in movies and movie's posters. That became the tendency of recent 20 years.
Question: How many movies are there about the composer Beethoven?
Answer: 3 (three).
Q: How many movies are there about dog "Beethoven"?
A: 8 (eight).
If you take a closer look at life of talented actors who are doggists, you can easily find that bad karma of doggism hits them badly, even most talented and most beautiful.
Everybody does know about troubles of personal life of Paris Hilton.
Here some other examples:
Elisha Cuthbert

Here about Jessica Alba

I've seen at least 6 movies about THE Beethoven, and pretty sure those are not all. Besides, and how many dogs have you seen performing in the concert hall? I know only one Benjamin Brittany.

You claim that six is greater than eight.
6 > 8.
Yes, indeed. This is a "new ukranian math".
That is why the Ukraine is destroyed.

Benjamin Netanyahu's dog Kaiya bites visitors

"A dog recently adopted by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Kaiya, bit two visitors, one a lawmaker, during a religious event.
The incident happened during a candle-lighting ceremony to mark the Jewish festival of Hannukah at Mr Netanyahu's residence.
MP Sharren Haskel and the husband of Tzipi Hotovely, the deputy foreign minister, were not seriously hurt.
Mr Netanyahu's son took the dog in from a rescue home earlier this year."
