LOS ANGELES, CA - JUNE 17: BioArts employee Farah Shaw kisses a puppy as five puppies cloned from Trakr, a German Shepherd search-and-rescue dog used to locate Ground Zero survivors after the September 11 attacks, are displayed to the press on June 17, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. The puppies are the first German Shepherds ever cloned, according BioArts International whose South Korean scientists created them. The two- to six-month-old puppies are being awarded to former police officer James Symington for winning the Golden Clone Giveaway essay contest with his piece about why Trakr would be the perfect dog to clone. The company charges pet owners an average of $144,000 to clone their dogs. (Photo by David McNew/Getty Images)

This is hysterically funny to me as I was JUST thinking about this the other night.  We were downstairs watching TV.  Debbie says, “I’m getting sleepy, I’m gonna go upstairs.”

She then leans down and showers the dog with kisses.  Turns to me and….says, “Goodnight.”

Now I read this today.  More than half of all dog owners prefer kissing their pets over their husband or wife, a new survey indicates.

According to a Riley’s Organics study, 52 percent of dog owners would rather smooch with man’s best friend. It also reveals 52 percent prefer sleeping in bed next to their dog over their partner.

Well, at least the dog prefers me over her for sleep, I guess. <g>

While the results of the survey might surprise some people, it should be noted that 94 percent of those surveyed also said their dog is one of their very best friends.

What does that make me?

I can’t be the only one here…HELLO?!  ANYONE?!
