    Think i would be standing at the side of the water stunned and suprised why my dog can't swim for it self.
    About the stranger, depends on how good looking she is :D

    I'd let the person drown, who is to say they have a family? Friends? Or anything else. It is just a person, like the other billions on Earth. My dog is worth more to me then just another stranger. Cold hearted? Oh well.
    And I am sure there are many, many people in this world that would do the same to me. Let my ass drowned and die, while they don't do anything or save the more valuable item.

    We are really making people out to be Gods in this thread. Are we forgetting how people REALLY are? :confused:

    no, there isnt anyone comparing people to gods. the value of human life vs a dog is whats the topic. just like someone else mentioned, the "i'll save my dog" argument definitely sounds like tree hugger bullsh*t to me

    Well in my case they would both get to suck water since I can't swim!! But if I could I'd definitely save the stranger. After all they do have a soul unlike an animal!

    its far from "tree hugger bs", it the cold hard facts of life.
    i was an avid waterman before i moved to the south, and let me tell you one thing-a drowning person is NOT a calm person, and will more than likely kill you, the rescuer. i remember a life guard who got SUED for breaking a mans nose during a rescue after the man tried numerous times to shoulder the lifeguard.
    as someone who has infact almost drown, i can personally tell you that you are going to be hard to rescue until you are near the end.

    the only time ive had to save anyone was in high school and i jumped off the lifeguard stand which was 8' in the air, into 12' of water, and i swam up directly underneath the guy i drug outta the water. right up behind him, arm under his and around the neck, and off we went. i wouldnt want to approach someone drowning head on, im sure they will lunge at you in total panic mode.

    It would be like everything else in life. It depends on the situation. You can say you would do this or that but until you're really facing that situation you don't know.

    I love how people keep adding in different scenarios to the question. lol.... "Well, it depends on the water current and the temperature outside, and whether or not I have my fanny pack on full of snorkeling equipment...."

    The stranger.... no doubt.. its a human being just like me and i hope that the stranger is thinking the same way when i`m in the water.....( sorry dog,save yourself and swim... you can swim attacking ducks so why not swim when drowning...)

    it's all about empathy,we empathies more with our dogs than a stranger who is just another meaningless face like the hundred's of thousands/millions we see in our life time,even though we know a human is more valuable than that particular individual we just dont have a connection with him/her.
