Everyone is entitled to their opinion, even you. You cannot take the scenario and change it around to "what if" which is what you are trying to do. I, too, am glad the dog survived. That is a simple statement which implies nothing more than that.<quoted text>
Had the dog not survived, it's likely that the woman would have.
Don't you think that would have been a better outcome?
An animal can be replaced; a human being can't.
Contrary to popular belief among the animal rights wackos, animals are not equal to people.
As far as replacing an animal, I don't believe you have ever loved a pet if you think they are replaceable. So next time don't comment on something you know nothing about.
