Dog Ownership And Longevity

There is a new study - there is always a new study -  that associates dog ownership with a longer life in humans (even longer for single humans, for some reason). 

Now, to my non-analytical eye this smacks a little of "We have measured A and B, and have decided they are related in some way that sounds cool after a few drinks the other night."

Don't get me wrong, we love the doggos in our house, and we definitely feel they enrich our lives. Also, if you commit to a dog you likely have to engage in "walkies" and I would guess that is a positive thing for most folks' general health.

CNET has a (delightfully pun-filled) report on this study here, if you want to cast a critical eye upon in.
