Can Fido Land You a Date?

A new iPhone app claims to know the secret of dating success - your dog's cuteness quotient

Klooff, a new iPhone app for pet lovers, is helping users take and post cool pictures of their pets on popular social networking sites like Facebook. And from experience, we know one thing: gays sure do love their pets. And, as it turns out, there are a few more incentives for sharing Fido’s mug online – besides the sheer cuteness factor. Your dog could help you land a date.

These folks must have never visited South Philly where lesbians with pit bulls seem to have cornered the market on dating. And guys strolling their pocket-size pooches around Center City? Yep, they also win us over.
