They say that dogs and owners often share personality traits, and from what we've seen, this incident seems to confirm that old adage.

But I was serious about the gate check idea. If someone was reasonable (obviously not the case in this incident), I wonder if offering to hand carry fido in a travel container to the cargo hold, along with the green tagged bags, and reverse the hand carry at the arrival end would have yielded a reasonable solution?

Don't you need to pre-book cabin animals? There is a limit how many are allowed on the plane. How did they even let her on with a 1C boarding pass and a dog. Obviously she can't put it in the overhead.

Why?

Certainly the overhead or a closet is more reasonable than gate checking the dog.
