If it was a choice between my wife and children and the dog, the dog goes.
It must be too much city living, I don't get it.
Not all animals are pets.
I couldn't give a rat's ass if a Japanese cow got killed so that I can have kobe steak and the sweet honey gets a nice handbag. If somebody were to try to kill my pet cow for food, then we'd have some serious problems resulting in death and violence of human beings.
I couldn't give a rat's patooey if my next door neighbor's dog were to drown. However, I'd risk my life to save my dog.
I don't have a wife, but if I were to have one and it's between her and my dog, I'd have to flip a coin. My dog doesn't nag on me. Nor does it want my credit cards to go buy shoes.
I hope that makes it clear for you.
