i remember there was discussion on the internet, if you are at the beach, and you see that your dog sinks, and some other man sinks, whom would you save?
Apart from that I believe this is not ethical question, I would say - if you have a choice, go for your dog. Because this way you don’t betray her. She expects you to save her. She expects that because she trusts you. When you ask her to stay while you enter some building, or shop, she knows you’ll return. She knows you’ll help because you took out thorns from her paws before.
Btw I cannot imagine a dog to sink. Afaik they swim very well. So this situation cannot really happen, I hope. (:
