Where is vetanaman??
Yes they do eat dogs and cats in other countries, and probably a lot of other animals you'd never think of. But a lot of American foods are seen just as "disgusting"--like Scrapple, rattlesnake, pig brains--or "cruel"--reindeer, songbirds, squirrels. The feelings of disgust or revulsion we have are fostered by our respective cultures and taboos. Dogs in some countries run the streets and cause trouble, and are not considered "man's best friend." So if you disagree with some aspect of another person's culture, you should keep it to yourself before you get embarassed. Not meant to be a rant, and sorry if it came off that way, but I was just a little upset by some of the other answers.

[And no, I have never eaten dog before, and don't intend to. I am also a dog lover, but I still think it's important to respect other people.]
