Market research? More Women Prefer Dogs Over Husbands by Steve, Thursday, July 20, 2006 An online poll released by DogCatRadio.com, shows more women would rather have a pet than a husband.Of the 103,900 votes cast in a period of seven days, an overwhelming 78% voted for a furry rather than a hairy companion. The poll has a sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points.While it's been said that a dog is "Man's best friend", the radio station says that 87% of its listeners are women between the ages of 23-49. "Life's too short to commit to someone you will need to know over time," says Nancy Keller, 29. "I'd rather have a pet and simply date. Less stress on everyone involved." In a somewhat related subject, we published the results of a survey which showed that 51% of the respondents blame their spouse for disturbing their sleep, while only 38% blamed their pet.
