It's a dog eat dog world

Never in a million years

WARNING – for those of you that are dog lovers you may want to skip this blog entry.

On Thursday Val and I went out for dinner with 2 of her co-teachers. We were chatting about this and that when we go onto the subject of eating dog. Now contrary to what people outside of Korea think eating dog in Korea isn’t that popular, in fact I’ve met few people who have eaten our lovable 4 legged friends. Anyway, back to dinner. The 2 teachers we were with told us they had tried dog but only once in their lives. One teacher tried it at a restaurant and the other teacher had tried it at home (for those of you that are interested, it tastes like chicken). Apparently the latter teacher’s father didn’t tell her it was dog and it was only afterwards she asked what it was and her ‘honest’ father told her but (and this is where it just gets worse), it wasn’t just any dog it was their very own PET DOG. I think my face fell to the floor as I immediately thought of being served my own beloved dog on a plate with some veg and potatoes. Imagine, eating your own dog for dinner! I think I’m still traumatized by this revelation. Poor Scruffie
