The story is part of series on the topic. Here are the rest of the dispatches.

  1. Interesting. Kickstarts the argument ‘is dog meat really that different from cow meat?’ I also like the related posts link underneath – both for posts on hot dogs. 😀

    1. Always an interesting comparison, Greg. Of course, many people — particularly those who come from cultures where dog ownership is common — would point out that humans don’t keep cows as pets.
