    My cats! I don't think they'd be able to get out by themselves, and I love them too much to let them die sad(

      I'm not sure, I can't even think about it! House fire is probably one of my greatest fears, having all my possessions, pets, and possibly anyone inside the house burn is the most horrible thing ever! But I don't think they'd be able to get out:(

    My family.  Possessions can be replaced.  But there is so little time in most fires to get out that the only thing I think I would worry about are my loved ones.

      admirable!. Family first yes over everything. But c'mon Eric there has to be something you might sneak into your pocket before clearing the area behind your family. Maybe a shaver, or that expensive TV, suit. lol!

    It depends, are we talking outside of family members - because no contest, I would make sure my husband and dogs were out.

    Material things? If there was a fire, I'm not sure I would go in and get anything but I guess my scrapbooks and photos because they can't be replaced.

    lol, you are funny, Clayton. (still laughing here)  Thanks for making me laugh tonight, dear.  Please, just save your laptop and run like crazy out of the house.

    Me?  I'd also want to save my laptop as all of friends live in it... but I can't.  I only have one thing I can save, right?  My dog Snuffleupagus.  But he'd probably be out of the house faster than me, so I get to save my laptop too.  Yipee!

      Ah hahah!, Snuffleupagus seems to be quite intelligent!, i can just imagine him running out with something of his own between his jaws!, maybe his food bowl / plate!.

    My dog. That animal spends his entire life asleep and there is no way he would alert me, or probably even bother to get up, if there was a fire. Seriously, he has lost all canine survival instincts and is convinced I am his paid help. So, I'd save him!

    My dog! Of course my family would come first above anything else...but if you mean things it would be my Iphone--it would go in my pocket... then on the way out I'd grab my laptop and purse! LOL.. a woman without her purse might be a dangerous thing!
