I read today that the "top dogs" in Beijing are currently debating whether to pass a law making it illegal to eat dog - the end of a centuries old tradition in China. Apparently the new pet-owning middle classes are finding the custom increasingly "distasteful". It's a tricky decision - on the one hand it is a bit disconcerting to see a tail-wagging, tongue-licking "man's best friend" being taken on a last "walkies" from the market to the oven. On the other hand, dogmeat is jolly tasty!
