Don’t Blame Our Furry Friends

Just read a news report that kids who grow up with pets are more likely to snore. Whatever. Where some of these hair-brain studies come from, I don’t know. Is it possible to make a lot of money inventing science? If so, I think there might be a link between vacuuming and osteoporosis I’d like to tell the world about for some cash and attention. In any event, in my short scientific study on pets and snoring I took into consideration two samples, my family and my sister’s. My sister and I grew up with cats and dogs. Our husbands did not. Our husbands snore. My sister and I do not. Sure, my sampling is small, but hey, who relies on a valid sampling to report findings these days. I’m sure these ‘scientists’ didn’t.

    My husband swears I snore. I know he does. We both grew up with dogs and well, I can’t imagine a home with out a canine companion. If the study is correct, my future daughter in law will just have to deal.

    I snore sometimes, and I grew up with pets. Husband snores every night and never had a pet!
