How do you know? I'm pretty sure if you have occasion to see your dog and someone elses kid drowning together in a swimming pool, you're going to grab your dog on the way to that kid....especially if you don't know the kid. I can guarantee you if it was your KID and someone else's kid, it would be the same.<quoted text>
Not to worry, I would never save my dog over your child.
Your kid would come first.
You can say different, in service to making yourself 'look good' on an internet forum, but you don't know for sure until it actually happens.
My kids can swim, really really well...I made sure of it, because I'd trust them to save themselves, before I'd trust anyone but me to do it.
