No Girlfriend or Boyfriend? get a pet

This story is a few weeks old but i so agree! I'm very lucky to be in a great relationship, but if I were single...I'd have more pets

I totally agree with this article Marko! We all know that animals complete a family even if it that family consists of one person. Last year my brother's marriage ended which meant he had to now live alone without his 3 kids and his dog. He now shares his home with a wild n crazy "Morkie" called Ginger that keeps him very busy during the day and is a total cuddle muffin on the couch watching TV at night

I would have more pets if I were single, too. I've been told many times by my husband if I bring one more home, I will be single. (Can't count how many times I've been tempted)

OK...I'm married and we have 8 dogs. I wonder what that says about us?
