i have done a highly unscientific study involving everybody i can think of which supports the conclusion that the sex of a first child is likely to be the same as the sex of the dog those people own.
i would say 75-85% of people i can think of who own/owned a dog before having a child are blessed with a baby of that same gender. it is not 100% and there are exceptions to every rule, but it seems to be the great majority. it does not hold as true for second or third babies.
think of someone you know who had a boy baby.
did they have a boy dog?
is this true across the board or just with people that i know?
if it’s true – why? do the dogs emit hormones?
is it true for cats too?
