    A shame for the man because, God exists or not, it is sure that the dog is on this earth to show man the example of what love and loyalty.
    Eating dog, there is also the cannibalism……

    Do not be ridiculous, you eat cow, cattle and pig does not complain. Dog is just another creature.

    Thus the cow eating pork chicken fish and other…It would not be synonymous with cannibalism? since here we do the same but with different animals. does not help defend the dog and eating pork etc.…

    right on, but it makes no sense in farming dogs for meat being that their the most commonly pets and the environmental cost of how much meat, poultry and fish/seafood has to be feed to them to keep them healthy. like to butcher a dog or pet that just died of natural causes or was euthanized. Like dead birds could be sent to cat food factories to reduce consumption of poultry/fish to feed to cats. dead cats could maybe be added to dog food to help reduce production of farm livestock to reduce waste

    I think absurd eat those animals that are so kind, kill with ruthlessness. I was horrified with such cruelty, the human being really has no limits with your actions. Should have a stricter law against such practices, lack of respect towards beings who really know what really is love. God is missing

    What, then, e.g with pork or cows?
    I do not eat dogs but I also think it's not always true as people have something against the country just because it is their culture. E.g Americans eat tons of steaks (cows) but that's not bad and cows are indeed friendly animals, is not that they kill as us. Daniel, I just wanted to show you arguments and not personally instigate a fight. 🙂

    Any animal can be tamed and be kind, more every day on your plate has an animal slaughtered, is not hypocritical.

    How much drama…What is the difference between eating dog and rabbit, Duck, quail, Pheasant, veal (calf) I don't understand this. Every nation has its culture, its gastronomy anyway, It's time to each take care of your backyard didn't think? Or someone is better than anyone in this world????????

    The problem is the feeling that we unconsciously and automatically be prompted. Even if we try to fix them that this Act is inappropriate we unsuccessfully. Maybe if they had the opportunity to come and study here in the Americas could share our feelings, would have the same ancestors? The feeling is like a tree, and in the roots we have the reasons of our attitudes

    The problem is the feeling that we unconsciously and automatically be prompted. Remember this child li una Apostilia “The dog man's best friend – Pluto” . Of course I'm sick of eating dog meat or cat, but I can't explain how I have no mercy on chicken or cow. Dog and cat sounds to us like something familiar … But can you imagine if someday we are possible to be born with them, adopt their attitudes or would

    These countries would call themselves civilised but eating dogs (and cats) is barbaric, cruel and disgusting – just as is eating any animal like cattle, sheep, pigs or birds. Man is nowhere near being “civilised”yet while he still tortures and kills his fellow animals and eats their dead flesh. One day the majority will realise the horror, the enormity and the wrongness of this killing.Meanwhile we live in a man made hell on earth.
