Okay, we're Dogsters and I know none of us is surprized by this poll recently reported in TheScotsmanOnline.

Smile if you own a dog
Owning a dog brings greater happiness than being in a steady relationship, according to a survey.

The MORI poll of 2,000 people found that the happiness of 81 per cent of those surveyed significantly improved once they became dog owners.

Dogs came top of the "happiness index" ahead of job satisfaction and even steady relationships.

More than a fifth of people increased their number of friends through their pets and 36 per cent met a partner while walking their dog.

Show this to that nosy aunt who bugs you about having dogs but no boyfriend!
