Not only a Corgi, but a swan aswell.

I swear that is some kind of offence, since Swans are protected animals in the UK.

But you're not a vegetarian?

We eat some things and not other things, and there isn't really a moral reason for the distinction. I'd say it mostly comes down to practical concerns like how much meat they provide and how easy they are to farm.

It's a pretty weird protest (against the killing of these things), but people like to get all up in arms about this stuff when their own position doesn't really make much sense.

Most baby mammals are cute. But they will all eventually die.

I don't eat baby animals. As silly as it must sound to you, I would never (again) eat veal (after learning that the..sadly delicious meat is technically made of tortured baby cows). And, yeah, sorry, I don't want to eat cute animals. I wouldn't eat rabbit, duck, lamb. Or puppy.

You can't really compare dogs to farm animals. They at least appear to have more personality than farm animals.

It doesn't say that the corgi was a baby. And pets probably appear to have more personality than farm animals because we don't spend as much time around farm animals. The psychological distinction is really just a convenience.

It's fine for you to determine your eating habits according to cuteness if you want, but it's also pretty absurd.

I probably would eat dogs or cats if I thought they would taste any good. As it is, there's some things which I wouldn't mind trying sometime... locusts come to mind, from what I hear they're supposed to taste like asparagus when cooked.

Can't imagine corgis would taste any good or have enough meat to justify picking one over a different animal.

This reminds me of that breakfast scene in Pulp Fiction.

I'd eat rabbit, duck or lamb. I don't think I've ever eaten rabbit, but I'd totally tuck in. I'm reminded of a barbecue some friends had a few weeks ago. We went to a butcher in town and bought a set of quails (one each), and a selection of other meats. I went for pheasant and duck. Duck was fab, pheasant was passable and quail was disappointing. I'd had quail once before, and I'd tried to warn them, but to no avail. The worst part was that the ice cream van stopped just round the corner minutes before I could finish my final animal (duck). So I had to have half the duck, then a Mr. Whippy, then the other half of the duck. I think we counted them up, and something in the region of eleven animals had died to fill our bellies that day.

I really want to know what veal is like, but I don't... like to be involved with it. I'll steer clear of veal, although it breaks my mighty heart to do so.
