POLL:FAMILY OR PET?In any scenario you want it it to be,where you had to choose from a family member or your pet.What would you choose.In real life ,this may not happen,this poll will show who loves there pet more then family or who loves there family more then there pet.Results will be posted ASAP please make your answer clear,if it is a tie between family and pet its fine.
this one seems a little differnt..instead of letting someone die instead of your pet this poll wants to know if you feel your pet is family or just a pet.
I didnt answer the other thread because that was a scenerio that if it ever were to happen I'm sure instints would kick in and I would react however nature intends, so I cant answer untill God forbid it happened.
On this one I can say that Nap is family.He lives in the house w/us, eats with us, sleeps with us and is our furbaby. Duke and Duchess I love and cant see not having them lounge around here,but their more or less pets. They do thier dog things and really dont get personal with us like Nap has done. Maybe because thier differnt breeds and act accordingly. And my husbands hounds I see as hobbie pets. I wouldnt have a problem if my son quit hunting and sold his hounds to someone who could benefit from thier hunting skills.I've just never got emotionally attached.
Maybe if they were inside dogs they'd have formed that same bond with the family........ don't you have pits? They are typically very bonded to their owner, so don't know what their breed would have to do with not being personal.....
The person involved, the situation and the other circumstances would matter. If my wife tommrrow said, either I go or the dogs do, just because she no longer likes dogs. See ya baby.
But if the same choice came up and it was because of legit reason like. the dogs make her ill, or bite her. Were going to the pound.
Or if it was between My drunken uncle and Addie, me and Addie through and through.
You see it would depend, I would not make the choice on whom I love more. I would make the choice on taking care of me first. That is not an ego statement, but if you take the first situation my wife saying the dogs go, or she does for no reason. I am not changing what I love, or do, to appease anyone. IF I do that I surreneder my pride, and all that I am. I might as well be dead.
Ouch that one hurt! Yeah maybe so but I dont let them in the house because I cant deal with dog hair all over. It's a some kind of nice nasty thing I got going.I think thier better off than the majority of pits and lord knows I cant trust rehoming considering the next home might be worse than mine.(Or we would have rehomed Duke when we rescued him in the 1st place.) I've already swore to hubbie that if I ever, which wont be untill Nap gets very old or passes away,get another dog unless its a non-shedder that i can bring into my home.
