I really, really don't like to believe stereotypes.
Not one bit.
But sometimes, they are so true that I cannot ignore them.
This was the case in China when we saw this headline:
I had always wanted to believe that the whole "Chinese people eat dog" thing was an urban legend of sorts. Sure, there might have been a few isolated cases throughout history, but not a common practice.
Apparently, I was wrong.
The article talks about dogs that were saved from being sold for food. Another belief I had was that I believed if dogs were indeed eaten, it was only by people so poor that they had no choice.
The dogs were sold for $100 to $150 each.
Apparently, they are more of a delicacy.
