Most humans can not last a month without food, and even if you did somehow by some miracle survive that long, you would die of dehydration or exposure because you'd be so out of sorts you wouldn't be able to stay hydrated properly or seek shelter.
3 min. without oxygen, 3 days without water, 3 weeks without food.
Which reminds me, I saw a show the other day where a guy got trapped on an elevator for a 3 day weekend, couldn't reach anyone, and almost died that way!! It could happen! 3 days...no food or water!
In a real life situation, I've actually thought about this - say that no food was able to be delivered anywhere, everything was shut down, no way to get anywhere. So for a period of weeks, perhaps even months, you were without supplies, etc.
The dog food has ran out, and your own food is getting low.
What would you do?
I know we all love our dogs and they are a part of the family.
But if it came down to feeding your dogs your own food stores, or starving and quite possibly starving your kids (for those of us who are parents), would you make the decision to put the dog(s) down so that more of the humans could survive?
Not talking about eating them...but at the very least saving them from the agony of starvation?
