This is the article:
"Dog lovers in Iran could face up to 74 lashes under plans by hardline politicians that would ban keeping the pets at home or walking them in public.

A draft bill, signed by 32 members of the country's conservative-dominated parliament, would also authorise heavy fines for offenders, the reformist Shargh newspaper reported.

Dogs are regarded as unclean under Islamic custom.

They are not common in Iran, although some families do keep them behind closed doors, especially in more affluent areas, walk them outside.

Iran's morality police, who deploy in public places, have previously stopped dog walkers and either cautioned them or confiscated the animals."

This would be a good thing to know for anyone traveling to this country to live/work....dont take your pet!
