The worst thing happens, and your dog is dog-napped. Shortly after, you receive a ransom demand for your dog for $2500 or Â£2500. Would you pay it? Rule out the legal side, as in "I'd just call the police", etc. The question is would you pay the ransom to get your dog back? If you are concerned that someone might use your answer to actually kidnap your dog (even though all they have is a forum name) just vote in the poll, without commenting.
