    The Top 10 Reasons Pets are Better Than Significant Others

10> Pets only play dead when YOU want them to.

 9> Their parents never come to visit.

 8> They never complain about the position of the toilet seat 
    cover, even when it forces them to go thirsty.

 7> Not quite as embarrassing when they stick their nose in a 
    stranger's crotch.

 6> Instead of complaining about the pile of dirty laundry on the
    floor, most pets take advantage of the superior nest-building
    materials and take a nap.

 5> Your wallet will still be on the nightstand in the morning.

 4> You can cut off your dog's balls to make him obedient and 
    docile.  Doing this to your boyfriend is illegal for some 

 3> Final interment of goldfish is much less expensive to 
    arrange, unless the toilet backs up.

 2> How many women do *you* know who would kill something and 
    then drag it back home, dripping entrails, *just* to 
    impress you?

and the Number 1 Reason Pets Are Better Than Significant Others ...

 1> Unconditional love without the hassles of having to repair
    the rubber love doll.
