Yes I'm sorry to say that if my house burnt down I'd save my dogs first! I know that sounds really bad but its true, and this is probably the only place I'd get away with saying it!
I'm also a nurse and love my patients but still if the worst happened I'd save my dogs, does this make me a terrible person?
No it doesn't at least in my opinion! My mother always says this as well, first the dog then my dad!
