Say you live on your own with none but a dog as a living companion. You go broke and can not afford enough food to care for the both of you. What scenario do you go to first?
Feed the dog before yourself, so long as you can keep him/her. Hopefully you'll start making more money soon.
Sell/give the dog to someone else who can take care of it, that way the both of you can eat.
Feed yourself one day, feed the dog the next, etc.
Feed yourself, of course! The dog doesn't need food.
Yeah, this woman apparently starved her two dogs to death because she couldn't afford money for them. She brought them to the animal hospital, saying she couldn't bare to see them starving anymore. They died soon after. She's an idiot.
