BYE.  A new survey of 2,000 single people found 67% would DUMP someone if their pet didn’t like them.  And we value our pet’s opinion of people we date over everyone else’s opinion . . . including our own.   Two-thirds said they trust their pet more than friends or family when it comes to relationships.  And 71% trust their pet’s take more than they trust themselves.  Here are 5-more quick stats . . .
