Frist,I must declare I don't eat any dog meat ,I love my dog! Some people in China liking eating dogs and even cats in some areas.That's definitely unbelievable for westerners especially these from America. So what do you think of the issue .Do we should give up this action because foreigners'protest ? What should we do?

Virtually, nobody eat dogs, but some people might eat dog meat. I don't eat dog; I eat hotdog. I mean, hotdog is the other name for sausage, not the real dog meat.

I am a Chinese, as you know. And I don't think most people eat dogs anyway. I don't eat it not because the foreigners' protest. I like dogs, so it's impossible for me to eat it. There are many nice meats in the world, why we have to eat dogs? Dogs are our best friends.

I don't actually agree in eating dogs... I love dogs, they are my best friends... but, I think we should stop eating them, we must love them not eat them, we have so many foods, why not choose them than dogs..??.. if we are going to put our selves into their shoes, and if our own kind will eat us? what do you feel???

Are you a vegetarian? If you are I understand your point but if not don't you think it's just as stupid to eat a pig or a cow or sheep? Or even fish. People have fish for pets too.

It's true that in China some people eat dogs. I'm an chinese. Once I had a big dog but one day he went out and never came back. It's commen that people here kill the dogs and eat them. So terrible. So I will never let my dog go out by himself.

Just curious as to why you think it's so wrong. Are you a vegetarian and think that eating all meat is wrong? Maybe in some places people have cows or pigs as pets and think eating them is just as wrong. Why is eating a dog any more wrong than eating a cow or a sheep or a pig? Those are domesticated animals too.

I'd like to try dog myself. I had a friend who studied in China for a few months and he said he had some but it wasn't like a slab of meat he said it was little pieces in some type of aspic jelly and he couldn't get a good taste of it. Yeah some people have dogs as pets but it's still meat so why not dog?

Dogs become the issue not other animalsor pets. It is because dogs are more loyal!

As I think,dog is so beautiful,lovely,witty,and give people many helps,we should love them,shouldn't hurt them,even to eat them.we should love them like our children,friends and folks. The people who eat dog meat is badman,they don't have love and sympathy.If they can change position thinking,they will not be eating dog meat. so we must to prevent the people who eat dog meat.
