A New Sleep Study About Women And Their Dogs May Have Some Women Kicking Their Partners Out Of Bed

A recent study shows that women sleep more soundly with their dogs in bed with them than their partners.

Researchers from Canisius College and the Journal of the International Society of Anthrozoology surveyed 962 women regarding their sleep habits.

Of the women surveyed, 55% of those women slept with at least one dog, 31% slept with at least one cat, and 57% slept with a human partner.

The survey included questions about their sleep quality, their feelings when their dog or cat was present, and how their human partner affected their sleep.

The study revealed that human and feline companions were both disruptive to women's sleep as well as lacking in feelings of comfort and security.

Dogs came out on top, proving themselves to be good, non-disruptive sleeping partners.

Head researcher, Christy L. Hoffman, explained possible reasons for the results.

"Some dog house owners might take comfort within the thought that their dog can alert them within the case of an entrant or alternative variety of emergency. A cat is less likely to take on this role."

She also explained why canines were less disruptive.

"Dog ownership and its associated responsibilities may cause individuals to adhere to a stricter routine. Keeping to a consistent sleep schedule may be beneficial to dog owners."

The results have women everywhere nodding their agreement.

While we've all known this to be true forever, I'm glad it's finally official.

Few images capture a moment of unbridled joy following the end of a war quite like "The Kiss."

You know the famous image. It was the most iconic photograph of a sailor and a woman, widely mistaken for a nurse, in a time-suspended lip lock in Times Square, New York.

The black and white photograph was taken on August 14, 1945, known as V-Day, which signified when the Japanese surrendered to the United States leading to the end of World War II.

More than 70 years later, George Mendonsa, identified as the ecstatic sailor in the picture, passed away on Sunday. He was 95-years-old.
