People Take More Pics Of Their Pups Than Of Their Partners And It Makes Sense

There is no love quite like the love you have for your dog.

People of all ages legitimately see their pet dogs as their children, so it makes sense that they would be absolutely obsessed with them.

My dog Sloan, for example, is the epitome of perfection.

Look at that scrumptious little bundle of Frenchie love. Her interests are stuffed squirrel toys, practicing her pig impression, and eating wall plaster.

It is impossible not to take at least 2400 photos of that face every day. My phone has no storage left.

A recent study shows that most dog owners take more pictures of their dog than of their romantic partner.

The site found that a whopping 65 per cent of dog owners admit to taking more photos of their pooch than of their lover.

"The Truth About Dog People" also revealed that 54 per cent of people would consider ending a relationship if their dog didn’t like their partner.

What, like you wouldn't? We're on a mission of truth telling here.

Another interesting aspect of the study was that 47 per cent of those with a significant other admitted they would find it harder to leave their dog for a week than their other half.

Um, Brad the Prius-driving barista can feed himself for a week, and my dog cannot. It's science.

Apparently, 56 per cent of people greet their dogs before anyone else in the family.

Who are you more excited to see after a long day : a precious little ball of life who loves you unconditionally, or the people who keep asking you what you're going to do with an English Literature degree?


These stats make a lot of sense.

Your dog isn't going to ignore you for three days then send a text at 3 AM on Valentine's Day saying that he's not ready for a relationship.

Who's the one there after your breakup, ready to cuddle and chew a rubble squirrel? That's right, your dog.

Fine—maybe most relationships are kept together through the power of true love.

However, I'm willing to bet that you have a bond with your dog that transcends fickle human emotion.

It should never be a competition between your partner and your dog because you love them both in very different ways, and realistically, you shouldn't have to choose between them.

[I'm kidding, choose your dog]
