But some jackasses will call you sick. I think anyone that would allow their loyal dog to be killed over some random hobo are the messed up ones. Or maybe because their bitch mother or whorish wife wouldn't let them have a dog, so they have no comprehension of the greatness of dogs
Last sentence might be a bit much but I gotta agree with everything else.

I think the homeless guy is the one I would save at least that what I hope I would do and I think I would.

As I've gotten older I've felt less and less emotionally attached to pets. Don't get me wrong I do have some emotional attachment to pets, but I'm not sure it's enough to directly choose them over a human.

I havn't lost my dog yet (He is getting old but wife and I got him when we first got married). But my parents have lost birds that date back to my childhood (birds can live a long freaking time) and lost a dog that dated back to just after I graduated from college and it made me about as sad as hearing a celebrity I really liked died.

And honestly I feel about the same attachment to my dog. What is going to bother me more when my dog does die is how sad my children and wife will be.

You, your dog, and a random homeless guy. Life or death situation. Who does your dog choose? Who does the homeless guy choose?

Say there's a bad guy with a gun to the head of your favorite pet (dog, cat, fish, bird, whatever) and another gun to the head of a random homeless person. One of them is going to die, and it's your decision.


Whose life would you save if you had to make the call?

My dog is the easy answer.
I know for a fact that to be in this situation the person threatening my dog is cruel and trying to do harm for no other reason than to be cruel as my dog will not bite or attack unless protecting his people.

The homeless guy could be the victim of random violence or he could be a child molester who is being held at gunpoint by a father of a kid that bastard molested who is looking to exact revenge. If that is the case I hope the homeless guy gets shot.

The unknown is what wins in the end and my dog comes home and the child molesting homeless guy is dead

Oooh, that's a tough question. I don't think I could live without my beloved cat. She is Persian, white and beautiful. I love my cat very much because she helped me through a difficult time as a teenager. I talked to her when I had no friends and trusted that she understood me. She is my most faithful being in the world, and now I live with her alone. I had a hard time finding an apartment where I could have pets, but I eventually found one. However, the last time she acted strangely: she was too affectionate. I found an article when a cat is too affectionate the reasons behind it and what to do, but now I'm hesitant and thinking about going to the vet. Any experience, guys?
