Did you know that raising a dog in your house is prohibited in Islam unless you have a good justification like, defense or cattle protection? Well, if you are a Muslim and you own a dog and don’t know about this and still want to remain a Muslim, then you better kill your dog because angels don’t enter a house where there is a dog in it. And oh, by the way, throw away any picture you have in the house because angels hate pictures too and won’t enter a house with pictures in it!
I have this feeling that dog owners prefer to kill the angel rather than hurting a dog, but that is just my own feeling, you know, I might be wrong, I won’t generalize. Who knows, maybe someone would go and kill his dog for the bad luck he had all these years for not knowing that he shouldn’t own a dog!

Maimuna reported that one morning Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) was silent with grief. Maimuna said:
Allah’s Messenger, I find a change in your mood today. Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said: Gabriel had promised me that he would meet me tonight, but he did not meet me. By Allah, he never broke his promises, and Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) spent the day in this sad (mood). Then it occurred to him that there had been a puppy under their cot. He commanded and it was turned out. He then took some water in his hand and sprinkled it at that place. When it was evening Gabriel met him and he said to him: you promised me that you would meet me the previous night. He said: Yes, but we do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture.Then on that very morning he commanded the killing of the dogs until he announced that the dog kept for the orchards should also be killed, but he spared the dog meant for the protection of extensive fields (or big gardens)
You know, dogs enter your house by chance as well!
http://sunnah.com/muslim/37/126 A’isha reported that Gabriel (peace be upon him) made a promise with Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) to come at a definite hour; that hour came but he did not visit him. And there was in his hand (in the hand of Allah’s Apostle) a staff. He threw it from his hand and said:
Never has Allah or His messengers (angels) ever broken their promise. Then he cast a glance (and by chance) found a puppy under his cot and said: ‘A’isha, when did this dog enter here? She said: By Allah, I don’t know He then commanded and it was turned out. Then Gabriel came and Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said to him: You promised me and I waited for you, but you did not come, whereupon he said: It was the dog in your house which prevented me (to come), for we (angels) do not enter a house in which there is a dog or a picture
