I can say right now that I'm dying before I let anything happen to my pup.

I to keep right around a 150 lbs. of dog food on hand all the time, that would keep my four Hounds fed for several months. Check these rotten things out.

I wouldn't think of eating a pet as it would seem like cannibalism, but strays will be fair game for the roasting spit or stew pot, dogs or cats. The Lewis & Clark expedition ate a fair amount of dog meat as well as horse, donkey and mule in addition to wild game. Some of the men preferred dog meat to any other, others did not but ate it just the same.

If you're hungry enough you'll eat just about anything that doesn't kill and eat you first.

My dogs would definitely be with me. They are border collies and never leave my side. Best dogs I've had and will fight to the death to protect me.

+1 Cat is not bad. Took a trip down in Mexico to help build a church and some small homes. The women in the neighborhood cooked all our meals. I thought it was chicken stuffed in that pepper but I was wrong.

I have a beagle that rules the household. He will go with us because he's the boss and he's too old to make it on his own.

Depending on the type of disaster, I plan to bug-in. I don't have many places to go, and I have a small but growing cache of supplies. That being said, I'm a cat person. I love him dearly, and wouldn't trade him for the world. But if I saw that he was just as hungry as I was, I might consider a .22 to his head to end his misery and fill the belly of myself or my loved ones for a meal.

I know, I know. Sounds sick and twisted. But what we arm-chair spectators don't realize is that we are capable of unimaginable things when we are faced with unimaginable obstacles. I don't eat from the dumpster and I've got a warm bed to sleep in at night, so eating from the trash or sleeping on a park bench sounds simply impossible. However, I've also been fortunate enough to never have to do those things. So who am I to say that I wouldn't if I were pushed that far?
