There’s a Mutt on Our Cover. Here’s Why

Today, 71 percent of men between 18 and 44 own a dog — 71 percent! That’s more than the number of those men who have kids. Of course, there’s a reason for this. There are few things that round out a man’s life like a good dog. They’re loyal. They’re always happy to see you. And they never flake out on a camping trip or trail run. When you’re single, owning a dog is a sign you’ve grown up, agreed to take on a responsibility greater than yourself. When you’re surrounded by a wife and kids, a good dog is a slobbery respite from soccer practices and lawn-mowing days. They’re alone time, with a buddy.
