Well if this isn't a telling story on how both men and women feel about relationships these days, I don't know what is!

You've heard the saying, a dog is man's best friend right? Well, by the way it sounds, both men and women feel a dog would make a better mate too.

Purina did a survey recently and found that both men and woman think their dog is better at relationships than their partner.

31% of women feel their dog is a better listener and more attentive than their husband or boyfriend. With well over half of the women saying they find it easier to tell their dog all their problems.

So what about the guys? 14% of men said their dog shows them more affection than their wife or girlfriend. With less headaches, no doubt!
