While most of the world fixates on the if and when of George Clooney's future wedding plans, his love interest of the moment, actress Elisabetta Canalis, recently let it slip to Italian Cosmopolitan that if and when the duo tie the knot, kids wouldn't be a part of the equation. "[Getting pregnant has] never been an objective for me," she said. "My maternal desires are fully satisfied with my dogs."

That's right. If and when it happens, the union between these two gorgeous stars would produce little more than the pitter-patter of puppy feet. Of course, being members of the often mercurial set known as Hollywood celebrities, anything goes. But it seems you don't have to be stalked by paparazzi to share this pets-over-kids thinking: A new nationwide survey conducted by Flexcin International of more than 1,000 pet owners ages 21-30 found that 54 percent are choosing to have dogs instead of children because they're not convinced they can handle the larger needs that come with caring for human tykes.
