Way to fail at reading comprehension regarding what most people are saying about attempting to rescue a pet. But as long as it suits your argument, carry on......

I know my dog would do everything within her ability to save / defend my life. She would sacrifice herself if required.
I would hope I show the same courage and loyalty for her, if it came to that.
It would haunt me if I did not at least try.

Everyone is entitled to their own opion and ability to live their own lives, to their own standards.

My life, my standards.

Ironically, the only survivor was the dog. When people overly anthropomorphize animals into pseudo-humans, this sort of thing happens. No dog is worth the death of an entire family.
Bingo! You are 100% precisely right in every respect. The only survivor of this mess was a single daughter. No dog that ever walked the face of the earth is worth the death of anyone period. I would without hesitation allow any animal to die without regard for whose animal it might be rather than see any man or woman much less minors die trying to save that animal.

I can think of Many people's lives that I would gladly give up for a dogs life.....like any random jihadist.
Just pick one jihadist at random, and a dog at random....I will pick the dog to live everytime.

It's already been established that the family died trying to save eachother. It was only the boy who, initially, went in after the dog then again, with mom, went in after the father.

Sad story, but they did NOT all die trying to save the dog.

And, for the record, I think it's clear, and fair to say now, that most on this thread do NOT believe dogs are people.

For the most part, people suck.

Don't confuse them with facts.

Much easier to feel superior and better about yourself if you can claim they were all trying to save the dog.

You see, it isn't just the mainstream media that can distort headlines

I would die saving my cats. People can call me what they will but I don't care. I was that person once and believe me I understand that they aren't able to relate or understand how we feel about it. They give us unconditional love and represent everything that us humans should be but often aren't.

I'm glad for and I'm forever grateful to that sweet little kitty that came into my life and changed me forever. God rest him.
You have waaaay too much going in your favor to end up being the crazy cat lady.........


Sorry for your loss...

BTW I see stupid people die in our lake every year by doing things like diving into shallow water, or jumping boat to boat in party cove when they can't swim..This family sure had alot of love for each other so while very sad, it is noble and can show us what unconditional love is, it means giving of yourself for the benefit of others.

I'm not going back into a burning house, or out into heavy surf to save my dog. He's a DOG. His life isn't worth my daughters growing up motherless. We'd all be sorry if he didn't make it, but we'd be sorrier if an actual human member of the family died trying to save his sorry butt. And he's not about unconditional love. He's about rolling in feces and killing my chickens. I love my chickens more than I love the dog. But I eat them anyway, and enjoy it.

Besides which, the dog hates the water and never chases anything into it.

A dog is a animal. A jihadist is an enemy. No dog is worth a persons life. A jihadist is just an enemy. He is worth no ones life at all.

I did not and have not now read all the many posts to this thread. I read and responded to the following post...

That may be your personal belief, but it isn't mine.

I'd risk my life to save my pets. I don't necessarily feel the same about other humans or even some of my own family members.

So......a Jihadist is not a person because he is an enemy? That's your logic?

There is a long, long, long list of people who deserve to die more than most any dog.
You saying that unrepentant pedophiles are more important that dogs is ridiculous.
I actually don't understand how you think a child murderer is more worth saving than a military combat dog. Maybe you are a little crazy.

Pay attention bruce. When frank4570 says "Maybe you are a little crazy" you're getting advice from the horse's mouth.

To the op, it's so nuts that you would make this thread. Whenever I hear the misquote "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." I always think to myself that dog should be there instead of beer. There are things that are put in front of us to teach certain things. I think dogs are there to teach us about love, joy, and forgiveness.

Just the other day I risked getting my arm bitten off because of my dog. Did I know it was perhaps unwise, yes. Would I do it again, anytime.

Some people have a connection with their dogs, some people shove them out back, treat them as property and complain that they are nothing but problems. I am a dog person, my pooches have all known that, we are family. I can't say that I would sacrifice a family member's safety but if my dog is in trouble, I am there for him, just as he would be for me. Doesn't mean anything other than that, when there's a bond, others sometimes have a tough time relating to the strength of it. My dog would never leave my side, and I will not leave his, should he need me.
