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. (:

one of my colleagues told how he was poisoning ants at his “dacha”. i said:

— i’ve read a story about it by Levon Khechoian.
— who is he?
— he recently died, i guess he grown up in the village. he was writing sometimes mystic stories, very often about cruelty, and i believe he has a line about betrayal in almost every his work.
— well, I don’t consider killing ants as a cruelty. — he said.
— why?
— yes, when I was a child, we were killing a lot of them. i was doing carpet bombings, used burning plastic bottles, bulldozed their anthills with my feet, and was making crystal coffins. do you know what’s that?
— no.
— when you put a glass over ant and hit it with the rock.
here chief said:
— well, as we can see, memory about medieval inquisition is still alive.
— yes, — he said proudly, — I was probably one of them in my former lives.

needless to say, he also adores and respects Putin and Stalin, he’s homophobic, and he’s a sexist. Exactly as RAW wrote.
