A shameful treatment of man's best friend

Why dogs when there are so many other things to eat?

Cooked dog paws at a Chinese restaurant. A French association of animal lovers on Monday launched a petition aimed at encouraging China to ban, by the Summer Olympics, the killing of dogs for food.

Different strokes for different folks.............

What get's me are these Frenchies wanting to ban the killing of dogs in time for the games, even if they succeed, it will be business as usual 1 week later..........

Are those dog paws dipped in soy sauce?
Hey TK, I will admit that I had horse meat. It wasn't bad!

I am a dog lover so I naturally oppose to eating Fluffy. But in China, they eat all kinds of weird stuffs. Who are we (Westerners) to tell them what to eat and what not to eat?

Let them eat all they want.. I mean to ask them to stop thousands of years of culture because of Olympic games (that is a bit much). I mean people that go there do not have to eat it if they dont want to. I mean it is cruel but they dont see dogs as we see dogs. For us its a best friend for them its food.
