I have 3 dogs, serveral cats and a parrot, all are loved. If something happened the fiance would come first, obviously, but I specifically neverd dated any men who were not animal lovers. I dont trust people who dont like animals.

@ChocolateLime:  I would say my DH (with a great deal of difficulty) but I know that if there were a fire in the house he would not leave without the cats!!!!

I love my dog but he’s just that – a dog. People come first.

When we took pre-cana and had to write letters to each other DH wrote in his letter, I love you because you love the dogs more than me. Of course it was a joke but they are pretty high up there on our priority lisyy. 

Obviously he is a person, but in most situations he can take care of themseleves where they can not. Live or death, my husband, but our dogs are our family and I wouldn do anything to keep them safe. And I would never have to chose, unless something tragic like our house burning down.

When I first met DH he and doggie would fight.  I used to sleep with dog on the bed and she would push him off of it!  🙂  Now she is on the floor… on a dog bed.  But I still love and baby doggie, and he loves her much more now too.

Well…I think we both put each other first in most situations. But the fact is that our cats are like our kids. We got them together when we first started living together. Plus, they are helpless animals. We have plans in place if there were ever an emergency and we had to get out of the house. I get the little cat, he finds the big cat, etc. We would both be devastated if anything happened to either of them.

My dog because he was there 6 years before the FI showed up.  Plus, my dog has no to stand up for him.  lol  If an emergency situation came up, FI will be definitely be first.

I mean obviously my SO, but he sometimes pouts that I kiss my dog more than I kiss him, which…might be true. Okay, is true.

In fairness, SO is the only one I kiss on the mouth though. Smile

I will say my DH does….buut even he knows that’s a lie. My furbaby definitely is the love of my life. Too bad we’re stuck in a love triangle, because my furbaby loves my DH and only gives me the time of day when he wants to go out or eat.

We’ve actually talked about this, and I think DH…but only just.  I’ve had my cat since I was 13, and I love my dog so much it’s unreal.  He’s nice to them, and he takes care of him, but for me, they’re family, and for him they’re pets, so we dissent a bit on it.

Always my FI (but secretly my dog, Vanna White).

I’m fiercely protective of my dog and I got her during a particular low point in my life, so she’s been a life-saver to me…I would do just about anything for her.  I joke sometimes that I love her more than him since she came first, but he knows he’s the love of my life. Although sometimes I catch them together napping or cuddling on the couch and it’s so sweet that it breaks my heart. We both whole-heartedly love that little weirdo.

My DH is very open about the fact that the order is 1. Artie (our dog) 2. the Bears 3. Me

and it took me awhile to beat the Cubs.

In my case, definitely DH before our dog. I love our dog and everything but he’s 11 and still tries to knock over the garbage.
