    about two years ago i had a very good friend. one day her dad came home with a full grown chihuahua X DOG. Her mother was very unhappy since they already had one and she didn't want another. The father said the only reason why he got it was he was walking down china town in toronto and in a chinese restaurant the owners were practically saying if no1 bought this g\dog they were going to eat him. :mad: I know this sounds strange, but its true! But they must not be aloud to do that right? :confused:

    It sounds like your friend's Dad concocted a good story to explain bringing home another dog to his wife, lol!

    They dont know better? I'm not one to start a debate but thats kind of offensive to people from parts of the world who DO eat dog. I'm not saying I would ever do that, but in some countries, cows are sacred, but that doesnt stop us from eating them.

    ah, no problem, I know where your coming from! I hate it when ppl are so... what's it called... close-minded (is that it?).


    BTW sorry if I offended anyone, didn't mean to.

    I have a cousin who is in the Navy and about 5 yrs ago he was in the Phillipines when their carrier ported. The guys had a few hours of leave time, so they left the carrier and went on a walk... Right inside the city was a market square and Matthew liked to try different foods and what not... they found a stand that sold "Monkey on a stick"... he said it was delicious until he got around the block and on the back side was a man skinning a sheep dog... *~* gag *~*... I don't need to tell you what my cousin did next lol...

    Also, I recall watching a documentary on the discovery network or something like that a few years ago about how every year there are like 60 tons (so many thousand, I can't remember the exact number) of Dogs and Cats stolen and transported overseas. Some animals are "adopted" from shelters, and some are just stolen, and some are strays... but they went thru and showed what they do to them, and where their poor lil bodies end up. It was heart breaking for me to watch, and I've seen many documentaries, but none have stuck with me like that one. I mean, cheez n rice, they won't eat Cows because they think they are Gods and worship them.. but they eat our pets???

    *cry*

    When I was little I lived in Singapore and we saved a cat from being eaten! He was destined for someone's dinner plate. I think the weirdest animal food thing I have seen is when I went to Spain we went to this food market and there was a butcher's stall, and in the little display area were goats' heads all lined up in a row, and their tongues were poking out.. it looked scary!

    By the way, that's so nice of your friend's dad to save the dog! :)
