Nope. In fact, I would rather die and allow him to survive off of me than the other way around.

Dogs are loving companions. I couldn't just slaughter one of my pups so selfishly. If he died naturally, sure I would eat him if I had to, but never kill.

Nope. Never. First- I could never bring myself to kill either one of them by my hand.
Second- The guilt and loneliness I would feel after they were gone would devastate me totally and I would not want to eat anyway. We would stick together until the bitter end- one way or another.

A bigger question is "Would your dog eat you first?"

Same here. And if I died first, it would be ok by me if my puppy ate me to survive. LOL

I wouldn't ever kill my dogs for food. why? You are stuck somewhere? you have a GSD? prey drive? uhhhhh MAKE THE DOG CATCH YOU FOOD!! LOL

My dogs have brought me Possums, mice, wild turkeys, squirrels. Those sounds much more appetizing then loosing my best friend and a fantastic hunter.

I think I would be better off with my dog, in terms of the protection companionship and potential for catching game we could both eat.

I would start with one of his hind legs they seem meaty, and in return I would feed him one of my legs! Haha! How sick!

I voted no, I would search for fruit, seeds, leaves, bugs, and possible animals I know I could take down that live in the Amazon rainforest. I would rather let the dog go off on its own if I get the idea to eat a dog I owned. I watch too many discovery, animal shows not to know what I can find in an environment like the Amazon. I also read up on a lot of nature as well. I would never go into the wild without some type of map even a compass.
