Like hippy, like dog

Just read this on RSPCA website -

 "New research shows that people look for the same qualities in a pet as they do in a partner"  

This logic reversed a little -  same qualities in partner as pet. So, does hippy scoot on his ass on cold tile floors/gravel, let off windys then run away afeared, lick the sofa, baroo when he is lonely, do a mungry dance when he is awaiting his tea, spend ages arranging his bed then sleep next to it, rest his snooter over his beer lest it be stolen?
