I will say, the hard part of the decision would be which one goes first. Do you take the older one, the fattest one because it has the most meat, the skinny one because it'll lose body condition fastest (meanwhile, the fat one won't be so fat anymore). Hard decision.

Am I capable of cannibalism? Well, i have never been engaged in...To say the truth - it's revolting to contemplate such a possibility. And, eating a dog is not much different! Why? Because humans are not the carnivores, meat is not our prime food. Those, who did eat human meat (or their own dog's meat) - starvation must have had an impact on their brain already. How would I know what I'm capable of, if my brain was damaged?

We are omnivores, true.

But if I was starving to death you'd have a hard time convincing me I ought to eat an apple or a salad over a steak

SO and I have discussed this, we're "preppers" and are preparing for living on our own, in the wild, evading capture for a while. He'd like to eat them after they die or shoot them to eat them if we're in a bind, but there's no way I'll allow that. Even if they die, not going there.

If you were starving you would probably want all three.

It is not unusual , in fact it is part of a strategy , in Antarctic and Artic explorations to have used teams of sled dogs . Along the way the weaker ones were sacrificed to feed both the other dogs and the men . This , done in stages , eventually all the dogs were eaten and the men became the beasts of burden.
When my son was in high school there was a "educational" tour group that enthused kids to take the trip of a lifetime , the Antarctic , to visit the South Pole . My son being athletic and outdoorsy , and ready to go to university for ecological studies wanted to go . $10,000 - yes -- He tried so hard to convince me - read every book on the subject including books on Shakleton , Amundsen etc. I would skim through these depressing accounts late at night so that I could prepare my self with reasons to - why you are not going --

In the magazine Das Schaferhund Magazin nr 36 Dec. 2007, on page 18 (Ein Besuch auf der Siegershau in China) (a visit to the sieger show in China) there is a picture of one of the special meals served up. Can you guess ?

A (boiled?) dogs heat - mouth open , looking jellified with some spinachy gravy . The caption below is --- ohne Worte-- meaning without words -- . I would say so .

No, I would probably be the one who cuts off her limbs to feed the dog. They have to eat too.

carmspack, did you ever notice that on Shackleton's expedition, the cat survived? I was working with the Shackleton exhibition at the Field Museum when I noticed this. Heh

No, I couldn't. We go down... we go down together. Even starved and sick, I don't think I could kill my own dog. However, my dogs all would probably hunt with me, and I'm sure I'd find what I need to at least live. If not.... well... that's the end.

Hopefully I'm never in a situation like this.
