Is Posner Pooping Out on Pets? Would You Kill Yours for a Cool Million?

Is Posner Pooping Out on Pets? Would You Kill Yours for a Cool Million?
Aren't all our pets like Lassie in our hearts?

Blogger, friend and Chicago mover and shaker Kathy Posner noted that CBS News with Vanity Fair conducted a random poll, the results were published in the February issue of Vanity Fair.

The questions: “Would most people you know kill their favorite pet for $1 million?" 

11% say Yes

83% say No

Well, my friend Kathy Posner's blog  points out that your answer may be different if it meant the $1 million may come in handy for the medical care of your dying mother. And without the bucks, she's a goner.

I agree with Kathy on that (even though my own mother doesn't read blogs). But she adds for a college education for the kids in exchange for the pets? No, I don't think so, Kathy, sorry. Let the kids go to work to pay their own way or get a scholarship. In fact, the lesson learned wouldn't be a very good one for the kids, would it?

Kathy concludes:

  And under the correct condition 100 percent of us would kill our favorite pet.  Unless it was Lassie!

Thing is Kathy, to me and most people I know who have pets (cats too), they are all Lassie!
