Dogged If You Do, Dogged If You Don’t - By Mark Steyn - The Corner - National Review Online
If I may offer my view as I think there's some misinformation regarding dogs from an Islamic perspective.
Dogs, like any other animals, should be treated well. They discouraged from being kept as pets because of hygiene purposes and they may also be likely carriers of diseases. Link to cdc (Animals: Dogs | CDC Healthy Pets Healthy People)
It is not a sin to touch dogs. In fact, dogs can be used for work such as on a farm or guard duty. It is important to wash up after touching dogs, especially before performing daily rituals.
Some people are more sensitive than others. I usually find that the more sensitive people are the ones that do not have enough knowledge to justify their beliefs. Hence, they rely on the word of others on how they should act.
Your going to have fun here, i can tell.
