My mom came across an article in a magazine she was reading on Saturday and she wanted to ‘borrow’ some ‘air time’ from me so that she can share it with you. We tried to upload the article but silly mommy couldn’t get it right after umpteenth tries.. blogger won’t load the file…

Anyway, according to this article (named ‘Puppy Love – Your Dog Could be the key to Finding the Perfect Man’), if you want to know what a woman wants in a man, you should take a look at her dog (if she has one, that is). This conclusion was reached by a recent survey conducted with 2000 women by Petcare Information and Advisory Service in Australia.

The survey found that women rated loyalty, affection and friendship as the most important traits in their partners, and these are the very same qualities they loved about their dogs. Can you think of what the other traits could be other than those 3 listed above? Here’s a few that I thought of, and I’d love to know what else you can come up with!!

1) To come when being called
2) Finishing up all the food that she’s prepared with gusto (even though it may taste funny)
3) Not complaining when she returns home with bags (and bags) of shopping
4) Not fighting with her for the TV remote control

The survey also found that women in the survey believed their partner’s looks match up with the ones they are looking for in their 4-legged friends!! (Hahahahaa… This one tickled me so much… ** Note to my dad: Do you have a cute black nose like me? Do you have round black eyes like mine?
Do you think we look alike?? Nah... I am waaaaay cuter than you!)

Anyway, mom thought the survey was pretty interesting because many times, she had actually noticed that pets DO resemble their owners to a certain extent.

Mom loves walking me because I am a guy magnet. But if a guy is gonna be like me, he's gonna be one hairy guy, let me tell you.

Hi, Huskee.

That survey sounds interesting and my mom is glad I never complain about anything but I am not so sure if I look alike my mom!
Have a nice day

NOOOO!!! I'm not as *fat* as my dad..I'm way slimmer. hehe..PS : I think my Mom can look as hot as me...if only she has as much hair as I do. LOL! I'm Jessica Alba's twin remember?

Ferndoggle said...

Well for me...comic relief! Nothing gets me out of a bad mood like watching my goofy dogs do funny things. And Scott is pretty funny so that makes sense!


Billy said...

Interesting article! Thanks for sharing Huskee.

They say that we start looking like our dogs after awhile...that's another interesting concept!

I think my older hooman brother looks like me the most, he has dark hair and has these really nice chocolate coloured eyes.

BIG hugs from Billy Boo:)

Toby said...

Hahah, Huskee, that article is SO true!!! Thanks for sharing!!! But there's no question about it, I'm def. the more handsome one compared to Daddy!!! Shhh...don't tell him I said that!~


Ike said...

Why would a woman want a man when they can have a dog?

Hammer said...

Hey Huskee Boy

It's no wonder mum can't find a man because she looks goofy like us. Ha ha !!

Love from Hammer

PS It's just as well mum doesn't drool

Hee hee, my mom does get poodle frizzy hair after her shower, but she "fixes" it later. Now why wouldn't she want to look just like me everyday?? She also wears black often so we match when we go on walks :)
