Survey Finds Idaho Dog Owners More Likely To Suffer Break-Ups
When it comes to human relationships, you might be surprised to learn just how much pets factor into whether or not a union between two people is going to last. Idaho is a very dog-friendly state, which could increase the likelihood that state pet owners will have more of a difficult time keeping romance alive.
I've owned dogs my entire life. In my earlier years, I didn't find it necessary to inform women I was interested in dating that I own dogs. It's just one of those things that I didn't concern myself with.
Nowadays, that sort of information is crucial when it comes to finding compatibility in a relationship. The film Must Love Dogs comes to mind when I think about the fact that pet ownership is often a dating deal breaker. The movie does a great job at showing just how much people measure others based on their level of pooch passion.
A Forbes study from earlier this year found that nearly eight percent of Idaho dog owners have broken off relationships because they felt their dogs weren't being respected enough. Knowing how much Idahoans love their dogs, I'm thinking that number is even higher. Only 10,000 dog owners participated in the study.
Would you break off a relationship/marriage if the person you were with didn't treat your dog right?
Luckily, I married a dog-lover and we just recently rescued a Golden Retriever puppy. In fact, he was the inspiration for this story and is featured in the photo. This is "Whiskey" attempting to figure out our dog door the other day.
