Tough choice: Dog or Husband?

A colleague (non-dog or pet owner) asked me today if I had to choose to between my husband and my pooch who would I choose? … The situation was that whoever I didn’t choose would be cast out never to see me again (they may or may not have a happy life… that was up to fate) and if I choose my dog she would live the lifetime of a human with no health issues…. I think they thought I would answer “husband” straight off but it literally took me hours to come to a decision…. which was eventually my pooch (I figured my husband would have an understanding of what was happening and be able to move on whereas Pepper wouldn’t… plus we would both want her to live for as long as possible)
