Dog meat shouldn't be banned. There was dog meat cuisines in Asia for over 5000 years and being a man's friend or not is depended by whether it has its owner or not. Many of the reasons of banning dogs are with emotions. Not all dog farms are cruel. Cows are worshipped by people in India, but we eat them. How about dogs then?

I do not think that eating dogs is "bad" or "barbaric" otherwise eating animals in general would fall under those categories. However I believe that the reason we do not eat dogs is simply culture. As you mentioned cows in India, cows to them are a sacred animal. And to us, dogs have become seen as friends. Of course not everyone shares this view, but at least in America I do think that a majority share this opinion.

Another reason that dogs are not chosen for food however is the services they provide. Seeing dogs for blind people. Dogs to help people about to have a heart attack. And other such services make them more useful as pets than as food where we have plenty other more desirable and available meats.

Dogs are delicious and very welcomed in the People's Republic of China. Our great Prime Minister Xi Jinping's favorite food is Pitbull, it really shows he is against violent breeds and is willing to protect the world from them by consuming such abomination. People in China LOVES dogs! and eating them is their way of expression, our Noble and Strong souls will bring prosperity to the world! ALL HAIL PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA! COMMUNISM SHALL PREVAIL AND LONG LIVE MAO ZEDONG!

You can purchase "Mao's Little Red Book" here in Mainland China, IT'S A BEST SELLER!
