Yes, you have Chinese dogs, South American dogs, Japanese dogs … black American dogs, painted African dogs, Taiwanese dogs … all kind of dogs … I have a black Taiwanese dog … people really keep staring at it when I walk by and they say always it’s a beautiful dog … what they actually want to say is, the dog looks good, strong, healthy and is probably very tasty when it’s properly cooked … [/quote]
I was at a pet store in China once and told a young woman who’d just purchased a puppie that ‘it looked very delicious’. I’ll never forget the way she glared at me, shielding her doggie from the evil foreigner.
Dog tastes fine. Kind of sweet, but not gamey. It’s good in hot pot. Mind you, in China at least, there’s a very clear distinction between pet dogs and edible ones. The cute ones are for befriending. The ugly ones for eating. And, although there may be exceptions, they are generally bred on doggie farms solely for the purpose of eating them.
