I've eaten dog before when I was 3. My parents fed it to me on a trip to Korea. Supposedly I wanted seconds, but they ran out. It is called Boh-shin-taang: a dog stew.

It is a fairly big market over in Korea. At least it was until the Western civilizations started putting pressure on Korea to stop the practice. Now it is an underground, "hush hush", culinary fare.

On the lighter side of things check this link out. Quite funny (NOT REAL).

I voted no. Not because eating dogs is disgusting (no more so than eating many other meats), but because you're pretty much suggesting that maybe we should eat any stray animal we find to reduce their population. If so then we'd be eating diseased rats and racoons. If not, then you're suggesting that we breed even more of these overpopulated animals for consumption, not even fixing the problem at all.

Now this is about a total of 26 friends. Everytime I've gone to their houses and had their food, it is far from the ignorance people of non Asian descent try to portray.

I don't understand why this generalization keeps occuring alongside the word Asian. It pisses me off honestly.
Please note that my words were not mine but directly from Wiki...

Your comment about ignorance....well, again according to Wiki..China alone consumes over 20 million dogs per year...

For instance...it is still legal to kill and eat your own dog in Hawaii even today.

BE IT ENACTED BY THE LEGISLATURE OF THE STATE OF HAWAII:

SECTION 1. The legislature finds that, while killing dogs and other companion animals for food is unacceptable in many societies, it is a widespread practice in others. Critics of the consumption of dog meat cite inhumane killing and unsanitary slaughter methods as some of the reasons to condemn the practice. Currently, a person may consume dog meat in Hawaii if it is from the person's own dog and it has been killed in a humane fashion. It is illegal, however, to steal someone else's dog and a violation of animal control laws to seize a stray dog and not surrender it to an animal control officer. Yet, there is no law specifically prohibiting the sale, purchase, or other distribution of stray or stolen dogs or cats for human consumption, whether humanely slaughtered or not.

The legislature further finds that, while the killing and sale of dogs for food is not a common practice in Hawaii, the Honolulu police department and the Hawaiian Humane Society have recently received reports of the illegal seizure and gruesome slaughter of dogs for meat. There have also been reports on Oahu of people selling stolen or stray dogs for consumption. The purpose of this Act is to prohibit the killing and sale, purchase, or other distribution of stray or stolen dogs or cats for human consumption.

Seriously, if you ever contemplate eating dog or think it is acceptable, look at the sad pictures on this site
My Gosh...that website is quite 'in your face.' I didn't enlarge any of the pics since I can't stand looking at torture, but it's disgusting to read about the attrocities. IF YOU'RE GOING TO KILL AN ANIMAL, ANY ANIMAL, FOR WHATEVER REASON, THE LEAST YOU CAN DO IS KILL IT HUMANELY AND AS PAINLESS AS POSSIBLE!

1. This isn't an Asians eat dog thread unless people make it that way.
2. If added cats.
3. According to Wiki...in tough times those who live/lived in the Canadian Arctic have had to resort to eating dog...thus my wording.

why don't we add cows to that list as well because in some religions and customs eating cow is socially unacceptable.

Check how many dogs are put down at your local Humane Society... or type 'dog overpopulation Canada' into Google and read the threads...I think its clear.
