You mean a seeing eye dog! I thought it was some sort of military dog, like a bomb sniffer or guard dog, for some reason offered special treatment
because of its service. This makes much more sense now, although I have never heard them called service dogs before in this context.
I think for those who are thinking that this incident could have been handled differently, well, you might be right, but I would ask you to remember
the following. The air inside a passenger cabin is rotated all over the passenger area, by the air conditioning systems. This means that the smell
will not remain in one place, but be distributed EVERYWHERE. This means that every person on that flight, felt as if a dog had just done a number two
right next to their seat. It also means that the smell would have lingered for a significant period, even if the mess had been bagged, because it
would have been circulating around the air con system.
Further to that, we cannot say without further detail, that the droppings of this dog were in the familiar solid format that we are used to avoiding
on the pavement. If the dog was nervous or suffering gut issues from the flight, for all we know it could have been a wetter, more widely distributed
mess, that could conceivably have become one with the carpeting in a rapid, and unfortunate manner.
