DOGS

Never give a dog chocolate, as it contains theobromine, which is a central nervous system stimulant. As little as 2 ounces can be lethal to a small dog.

If you are offered 'fragrant meat' in China, be aware that this is their way of referring to dog meat!

A Southern U.S. specialty consisting of balls of cornmeal batter, seasoned with chopped onion, garlic, etc and fried.  The name supposedly originated when Southern hunters were gathered about the fire to cook the evening meal, and the dogs would start barking and begging for food. The cook would drop bits of corn meal batter and toss them to the hungry dogs with the admonition, 'hush, puppy!'

Americans eat more than 16 billion hot dogs each year.
