Hmm, I wonder how having a dog helps.

A dog is man's best friend so they say more faithful than a woman.

Cats have more fur, Dave. You'd think they'd give us more trouble.

Thanks Everyone
The Haiku probably wasn't explicit enough. This has nothing to do with being allergic or not to the animal. The belief is that having a dog will cure or ease allergies in general. I haven't been able to track down the mechanism involved.
