Yes. As of 2006 there were 45% more dogs than children in the city of Seattle. I'm not sure what that says...Seattle is a fairly educated city, so many some women are putting off child rearing?

Seattle has a large "single" population. OK, so they have dogs. Why is this even an issue?

Thankfully, Seattle doesn't seem to have nearly as much doggie-doo on its streets than Paris. Paris would be pretty tough to beat.

Nope. After finding a mate, humans migrate to the Eastside to rear their young. The Eastside has better nest building materials.
