    Let's say you are walking by a lake and notice a disturbing sight

    Your not-so nice neighbor(a man)

    and

    your pet(a dog)

    They are both drowning

    You can only save 1. Which do you save?

              Lucky for me this is hypothetical...'cause that would be a rough call. Human Life...over your good and trusty dog? Of course...in a real pinch the Human would win out. Also, Lucky for me...I have a lab...they can swim better than some fish!

    Since my neighbor is not so nice, he was probably trying to drown my dog...so I would of course go for my best friend which would be my dog...I would call 911 to help the neighbor. wink

      prettydarkhorseposted 8 years agoin reply to this

      he will be dead by then

        caravalhophotoposted 8 years agoin reply to this

        yes, but if I saved the neighbor, my dog would be dead...so the choice comes down to...crappy neighbor or the joy of my best friend...dog wins again. wink

      I am so with you on that one caraval. Hey I would save the dog then call 9-1-1 for the neighbor.

    Ivorwenposted 8 years ago

    Having seen my dog swim white water rapids, with ease and enjoyment, I would though out something for either of them to grab and let them decide whether or not to be saved.

    Seriously, if they are both drowning, only a fool would go into the water.

    My dog.  As I was saving my dog, I would punch my neighbor in the face for stealing my dog.

    I need more details.  How not-so nice is the man?  Is it a man or maybe a woman?  Is my dog getting old?  Does the neighbour owe me money?

    I'd prefer to save MY dog but that little angel on my shoulder would probably disagree and talk me out of it. I would end up saving the not-so-nice neighbor instead and then, since I really don't like him anyway, and because of saving him caused my dog to drown, I'd make the rest of his life as my neighbor miserable! Unless he was totally grateful, changed his not-so-nice ways.

    Hypothetically, I would save the man. In real life, I would call 911 and try to find something to throw to him to pull to shore, cuz I cant swim.

    If my neighbor was never nice, I would toss him a lifesaver and jump in for my dog. If he's drowning then there's a problem cause he's a Labrador, a great swimmer and water lover.
