The big city is nice for some, but to raise a middle class family it's the suburbs. Again.

Lies, damned lies, and statistics.

There's something pathetic about that. I can understand it with really old people: all their friends are dead or nearly so, the young ones shun the old bores, so a dog makes for a "presence".
Not very different from all the people who have the TV open all day long. (You can see it on lots of YT videos where there's an active screen in the background, completely unrelated to what's going on.)

OK, I don't like dogs, nor television… :|

But your thread title is spot on! :figamagee:
