I wish this thread would be closed so it would go away already.
Every time I think it has, it keeps rearing its ugly head.

There is enough ugliness in the world lately -- we have enough without having to see the dog-eating question at the top of the active thread list, again and again.
Many of us, I think, come here to get a break from the ugliness.

Nope. No more than I'd eat my brother.. And as the question is posed, it would be pointless either way. Because if it came down to life or death - to eat my dog or starve, that means I have no other food. And once the dog has been digested I'll just starve anyway. I wouldn't kill my dog to survive a few more days.

And it's not so much that I value his life more than mine. It's loyalty, I wouldn't turn on him like that.. And then if I DID survive somehow by eating him, it's only temporary anyway.

Perhaps I missed something in the thread where is got ugly.. but would you say the same if this was labelled "Would you rather have ham, or turkey for Thanksgiving?".
I fail to see the difference except we are bonded to these animals - the dogs I mean.

It's settled then. We'll kill and eat Julie87's dog now, and have Lilie cold for supper...

No chance. For so many reasons, but I'll sum it up to say its not moral to murder a family member.

I would NEVER even consider it! My dog is part of my family. I love him more than anything. When I get my paychecks I buy his food before I buy groceries for me. I could not eat him!
