A new study confirms what we’ve always suspected: Dog owners are obsessed with their dogs.

Is your instagram feed overflowing with adorable pups? A new study confirms what we’ve always suspected: Dog owners are obsessed with their dogs. So much so that 65% of dog owners admit to taking more photos of their dogs than of their significant others, according to the results of a study from Rover.com.

The results of the study, done by rover.com, confirm a disheartening number of things for the underappreciated partner in your life. For instance, nearly half of those asked said it was harder to leave their pooch for a week than it would be to leave their human counterpart.

56% said they greet their dog before other members of the family as soon as they walk in the door.

Overall the respondents agreed that dog-human relationship has changed from an ownership role to a family based one. You can tell the rest of your family it’s time to step aside now.

It may be that people take more pictures of their dog due to a dog not living as long as a spouse typically would. I've had my dog for 7 years, and he definitely doesn't look the same as he did just 4 years ago. I also take more pictures of my kid than my partner because kids grow up fast and change fast too... Us adults, all we do is eventually get wrinkly... lol.
