For some dog owners, it seems as if their phones and texting are more important. Be careful pups – a recent survey of 1,000 American smartphone users seem to indicate the sacrifices to hold on to their phones are indeed astounding and temporarily have a higher priority than dog kisses.

According to Simple Texting, even some of the most loyal pet parents, when asked to pick between their pet or their phone, 40% were willing to part with their pet for a month if it meant keeping their cellphones. Imagine that – people would rather be separated from Fido than with their phones.

Now for the good news – depends however on priorities. Pets still beat significant others – those statistics say  44% of respondents would be willing to sacrifice their partners for a month. The other top contenders were giving up alcohol, Netflix, Target and coffee.

As for sex, then there’s this:

“53% of overall respondents and 60% of males specifically would rather give up their smartphone for a month than sex for a month; however, Gen Z respondents said the opposite. 56% of Gen Z digital natives would far rather give up lovemaking for a month than be parted with their cell phone for a month.”

Oddly enough, a survey of 2,000 pet owners in America and posted on a pet food company’s blog stated that 78% of pet owners consider their pets part of the family.
