haha,I have six dogs, not including the dogs had already died. Tell me about the dogs you have,and,have you ever eaten the dog meat? I like dogs, i think they are very cute, especially when they are still little. Dogs are our friends. But, around me, people eat dog meat, they even eat the dogs only one month old,it is cruel! when i see this, i could not say a word. Do you like dogs? Will you eat dog meat in the later day?

You must be Filipino... I love dogs. I treat them like babies such that I try not to have more than I could take care (I don't make them wear clothes though). Right now I have one labrador who weighs more than my mother. He is very behaved and well-trained probably because we give him enough attention. We try not to spoil him, but sometimes we fail. Because of this, we were able to save him from the flood. He cooperated when we brought him to the roof with us. He did not make a fuss when he was loaded onto the rescue boat even though before the big flood he would not get out of the gate. He walked about 5 kilometers to our aunt's house and even rode a tricycle. I guess because I love dogs, I could not bear to eat dog meat.

I have two dogs. One is a pug named Betty-Sue and the other is a pound puppy called Eddie. They are cool dogs and they're actually in bed with me now. No I have never eaten dog nor will I ever. However I don't eat any animals. I think eating dog is no worse than eating cows or pigs. Pigs have around the saem intelligence as dogs. Why is is acceptable to eat a pig or cow or a chicken but not a dog?

Hi,coffeeshot, you question is sharp. Yes, i have to say you are right. Eating dog is no worse than eating cows or pigs or any other animals. Somebody(including me) treat dogs as their friends,even a member of family, to them, eating a dog like eating a close friend. so they think eating dogs is cruel. Pigs and cows are not live with us everyday. Most of people do not treat them as their friend. They are just aniaml in people's eyes.

I have a dog named coco as its skin is brown. It's smart. When I come back to home, it is excited to strech up its front to paw. And I will shake hands with it. It is a little like greeting. I won't eat dog meat in the later day.

Hi sunlight, I have never had a dog and wouldn't have a dog simply because I do not like dogs. I have also never eaten dog meat to my knowledge unless someone has slipped it into a stew and tried to pass it off as goat.

hi sunlight, sad to say i do not have any pets.. But i surely like to see cute little puppies.. One of my fave is the chiwawa and shitzu which i really think is cool for a pet..:) As for having a dog as my dinner, i dont want to even try it in my dreams..Dogs are everyones best friend so eating a dog wouldn't be right and appropriate for anyone its like eating your own flesh..=(

i have 2 german shepherds. ginger is 1 year and 5 months. she gave birth to 2 pups last april. a girl and a boy. the boy was given away and we keep the girl.. her pup's name is bubbles, I am planning to buy a boy so i dont have to look for a breeder. theyre quite big already considering they're still young. when i go out in the house, I ask them to be tied because they would jump on me every time they see me. how could someone have the heart to eat such adorable animals and considering it is mans bestfriend. Its unhealthy and immoral to do so. It can kill if you eat them because of the rabies. good for those dog eaters. its of nature's way of taking revenge on people who do such cruelty to dogs in particular. I would like to own a pug, hopefully i can. *sigh*

That is soooooooooooo sick!! Why would anyone eat dogs? I shouldn't say I'm surprised but this is the very first time I read an actual person saying this...Now I no longer want any chinese foods!! The people who eat doggie meat are sick, sick, sick!! We have two doggies that are considered part of the family, I don't think that even if starvation were a factor would we eat our doggies! To me that would be like canabalism! UGH!! ~G~

Hi gwoman2, i wanna ask you some questions. Are you a vegetarian? Do you think the people who eat animal meat are sick? As i know, American also eat dog meat, so you do not eat American foods any more? It is so strange about your comment.

No I am not a vegetarian but I don't eat too much meat either... Where in the world did you hear that Americans eat dog meat? Am very curious...have been here in America all my life...since age of 6 months...and never have I heard this. (I am 56 yrs old). And why is my comment so strange? ~G~

sadly now,I can't have dogs.I don't have enough money yet to spend for their needs.I prefer adopting from a reputable shelter over buying from a breeder.I need money,because I prefer big dogs.I need money and a big space for them to run around.

I would rather eat worms or starve before I would ever eat a dog. Just the thought of it is criminal and hopefully in this country it is. My dogs, and I have 2 rescues, are a huge part of my family and there is nothing I wouldnt do for them. I also have horses and people eat horsemeat in some places as well. Another thing that I can not even bare to think about. I understand that in different cultures, different things are considered food and I guess you really can't criticize what a culture does or dosn't do. Another reason I'm so glad I'm an American!!
