"There is nothing wrong with it — it’s not illegal. But it’s ugly."

Here's an article about whether eating dogs is okay. I say, if you eat other animals, then yes, eating dogs is okay.

It made me think of something that I have discussed with various people in the past though. Extremist animal rights activists are often in favour of not having pets and not having domesticated animals. But I think that's a very human-centrist point of view. If it's in the best interest of the individual species to continue to pass on it's genetic material, then what better way than to latch on to another species that will raise them, feed them and keep them safe from predators? Is domestication really as one sided as we have been led to believe?
