I remember growing up racist kids would make fun of asians and say that they ate dogs and cats. I personally see nothing wrong with that. I think many people in western lands object to the idea of eating them because they are considered a domesticated animal or pet. I wouldn't care to eat a cat but I wouldn't hesitate to eat a dog. They seem to be lean, healthy animals. People eat everything else... racoons, snakes, squirrels and pigs so why not. Many of the animals that people eat today aren't clean animals and I would think that a dog is a clean, healthy animal.

My father used to tease myself whenever eat "siopao" in Chinese that they are stuffed with cat meat...

Brother Jack I dont like the idea of eating dog meat, when we are in a wedding my mother teased if its a dog meat because she is so open about that. Street foods made me think twice if the are dog meat, honestly. Its ok to made fun eating dogs and cats... :)

Eating domesticated animals has always been a cultural thing. I've read that pigs & cows have around the same line of intelligence that dogs and cats do. It's hard to judge a culture that eats intelligent animals when we do also in the west, just not as taboo. I have a small dog myself, and a friend of mine likes to joke that during the great tribulation he'll be turning my chihuahua into soup stock! Since he doesn't have much meat.  :lol: I, of course, would sooner eat grass than betray my puppy. I look forward to the day when no animal will have to worry about being consumed, by humans, fellow animals or otherwise!

When I read these kinds of stories, I often think of how close Shepherds were / are to their sheep and they still eat them. I look forward to the new world when we have a proper view of animals and none will question these things. For now  - 2 eat or not 2 eat is the question.

I once lived in an area where the best Chinese restaurant was next door to a veterinary hospital. We followed Paul's advice and didn't ask any questions, just enjoyed the food.:whistling:

 

"Eat whatever is sold in a meat market, making no inquiry because of your conscience"

1  Corinthians 10:25

Location, location, location...

 

I would have wondered about medication and sedatives in the meat...

People here use to comment that you never see street cats in the neighborhood of a Chinese restaurant. That urban legend was fostered by several reports of health inspections in Chinese restaurants that found dead cats in their fridge. But apparently those cats were for the consumption of the restaurant owners themselves, not for the customers.

Skyler, I can't tell about pigs but I can assure you cows are absolutely stupid. Dogs are one hundred times more intelligent than any cow.

 

Not that it diminishes the validity of your point in the least. :)
