Imagine being stranded in the grand canyon with your pet, and you're both starving
You have one meal left. If one of you eat it you might have the strength to go get help and come back to rescue the other one
But you know if you split it.. it may keep you both alive but you won't make it to get help, you'll eventually starve and won't make it.
So... Who gets that last meal? you, or your pet?
Keep in mind almost any pet is faster than most humans and can run for longer without getting tired as fast, so they could go find help faster.. and come back to save you, . . . . But What if the dog doesn't come back in time or can't find you? What if he doesn't remember his was back... What if someone see's him and thinks he needs help so they take him to a vet while you're slowly starving to death..
It would be better to go yourself right? let's think about that.
What if you eat the rest on the food, and try to come back for the dog? Sounds good right? you can go get help and tell someone your situation to come and rescue the dog? ... But what if your dog can't defend himself in the canyon... he's too weak.. he's starving.. what if you go get help and you come back to find your dog spreaded out in separate parts of the canyon?
What if he goes the other way looking for food because he can't wait any longer and you can't find him.. or if he just... starves...
Sooooo... Who gets the meal

The only situation in which I can wrap my head around it even somewhat making sense to let your dog eat instead of you is if you know for a FACT your dog is the type that can and will bring help back to you.
My dog is small, not too bright, and very self-centered, so feeding him would be the stupidest decision I could ever make in life. He would eat then curl up and go to sleep. Wake up with an attitude because I don't have more food for him x_x
Seriously though, I care for animals a lot more than many people but there's a point at which love turns into stupidity and choosing to let your dog live instead of you is crossing that line.3
