What does it take for a human and a dog to be compatible? Likely a lot less than most human relationships but what if it’s more complex with that? In a recent post from Mandy Len Catron’s Modern Love Column in the New York Times, she claims that by answering a list of 36 questions that have been scientifically vetted could easily lead to a perfect match.
If this has worked for humans, then we wondered if it would also be an effective method when adopting a dog? Answer the following questions answered and find out!
1. Given the choice of anyone in the world, who would you share your bone with?
2. Do you practice how you are going to sniff someone before meeting them for the first time?
3. If you could wake up tomorrow having gained a super dog power, what would it be?
4. What does being friends with a human mean to you?
5. If you knew that in one year you would die suddenly from eating too much chocolate, would you change anything about your life today?
6. If you were going to become a close friend with a human, please share what would be important for him or her to know.
7. Name three things you’d want your human to have in common with you (both personality and appearance wise).
8. Your dog bed containing all your toys catches fire. If you could only save one toy what would it be?
9. When did you last howl? Whimper? Howl and whimper in front of someone else?
10. Would you like to be famous? If so would it be for your good looks, your ball catching ability or your skills at napping?
11. What are three positive characteristics you look for in a human?
12. If you suddenly died this evening, what fire hydrant would you regret not having sniffed?
13. There are NO more questions.
If after going through all these questions, 23 more questions are not going to help you. If you can’t fall in love with the right dog, then maybe you shouldn’t get a dog at all.
