Where does your pet rank on less-likely-to-date list?

Owning a pet can make you healthier, reduce stress and anxiety in your life, and safeguard you against depression, many studies have found.

A book about a rescue dog
that will touch your heart

THE HUNT OF HER LIFE, is a nonfiction book about Samantha, an unwanted rescue dog who the author adopts at age 2. This beautifully designed full-color deluxe book, by longtime newspaper journalist Joseph A. Reppucci, contains more than 60 vibrant color photos of dogs to help illustrate the compelling and uplifting story of Samantha - a pretty tricolor bird dog who uses her warm personality to win people over and build a new family after being put up for adoption by a hunter because she is gun-shy and afraid to hunt. Learn how she uses her special bonding abilities with people to help her eventually make a transition from the hunting fields to family life. While reading the The Hunt of Her Life, you will travel with Samantha and the author along a trail filled with surprising twists, sudden turns, mystery and even what some call a miracle. And when the journey is finished, you may never look at people and their pets, motherhood - and perhaps even God - in the same way. The Hunt of Her Life is must reading. It will take you on a captivating journey - a trip like no other - that will touch your heart.

Spiders, first, snakes, second, and rats, third, are considered the biggest turnoffs, according to a poll of 512 single people in Britain conducted by yugov.co.uk for craigslist. Forty-seven percent of the respondents said they would be less inclined to date someone who owned a spider, 41 percent were put off by snakes and 40 percent would shy away from dating someone who owned a rat.

Women, in particular, were turned off by men who own spiders with 54 percent saying they would be less inclined to date a man who owned one. Forty-one percent of men said they would be less inclined to date a woman who owned a snake. 

According to the poll, the less-inclined-to-date list includes: ferret, 31 percent; lizard, 29 percent; mouse, 25 percent; dog, 23 percent; cat, 21 percent; parrot, 16 percent; hamster or guinea pig, 11 percent.
