People tend to have various eating habits, but why do people consider eating dogs different from eating other animal meats? An American novelist Jonathan Safran Foer in his article called “Let Them Eat Dogs” argues that people should eat dog meat if they eat pigs, cows, and chickens as they have same capacities, they are all good companions and eating dogs is not taboo everywhere. Even though the way he defends this point is quite reasonable, in this essay I will give reasons why this might not always be the case. This paper will focus on a cultural taboo aspect of Foer’s argument which states that people should eat dogs because eating dogs is not taboo everywhere and it does not harm people in any way. However, people do not necessarily have to eat dog meat since based on our cultural practices, eating dogs is not the same as eating other animal, even though Foer argues that.
There are many different types of dog collars available for all dogs of all sizes. Not every collar is appropriate for every function and activities. Dog owners should take the responsibility to examine the different types before choosing and buying a collar for their dog.
In the short story “The Last Dog” by Katherine Patterson a boy named Brock goes outside of the dome to explore and ends up finding a dog named Brog. The lesson I learned is believe in yourself and don’t always believe what other people tell you. I liked the “The Last Dog” because it was set in the future. How I connected was that he believed what he thought instead of what everyone else thought. It was easy to connect because he believed in himself.

Characters are a vital element of fiction; without them, a story falls apart because the readers are forced to only focus on its plot, setting, or other aspects of fiction. Characterization is the process in which the author describes the distinctive nature or features of a particular character. A character is often characterized by their own dialogue, actions, thoughts, appearance, and interpretation by the author or by other characters in the story. Through these methods, an author can really bring their characters to life for the reader. In “My Kid’s Dog,” Ron Hansen uses these methods to bring all his characters to life. He portrays the strained relationship an owner has with his ‘daughter’s’ pet dog, and the difficulties overcoming his hardships. Through methods of characterization, Hansen unveils the friction between the dad and the dog and allows the reader to empathize with them, incorporating humor throughout the story, as well.
Main point one: Companionship is important to have in your life, even if it comes from your dog. When life gets stressful it’s nice to have a companion to play with, take a walk with or even cheer you up. Companionship can be hard to come by with humans sometimes and easily found in dogs. While their personalities vary according to the breed of the dog, one characteristic remains the same, their loyalty. Dogs make great listeners, maybe because they can’t tell you to stop talking, but either way they seem to listen with interest. Many dog owners find themselves telling dogs things they can't seem to tell anyone else. This is what makes dogs good therapeutic animals. A dog is an especially good animal for someone who lives alone or suffers from depression. Having a dog present can also help people who have suffered a tragic loss in their life and need the company of another life for comfort. I know from my personal experience of losing a loved one, what a dog can do to help you through. Owning a dog gave me responsibility at me weakest and gave me a
Feelings are the most significant part of human’s creature, but what if it comes to the goal that your life is based on? would it still be that important? In the article, “Dog Lab”, Claire McCarthy discusses her own experiences as a medical student at Harvard school. McCarthy was born in 1963. She did her residency at Boston’s Children’s Hospital and she is now working as a pediatrician at the Martha Eliot Health Center in the Jamaica Plains. During college, she used to keep journal with her that provided the outline of her books which she referred to for her books such as Learning How the Heart Beats: The making of a Pediatrician and Everyone's Children : A Pediatrician's Story of an Inner City Practice. In addition to McCarthy being incredibly
Out of the three stories, “The Dogs Could Teach Me,” “The Sniper,” and “The Flowers,” “The Dogs Could Teach Me” by Gary Paulsen best demonstrates description. This proves to be true through Paulsen’s consistency of descriptions throughout the entire story, unlike “The Sniper.” “The Dogs Could Teach Me” begins with, “There was a point where an old logging trail went through a small, sharp-sided gully-a tiny canyon . . . It might have been a game trail that was slightly widened or an old foot trail that had not caved in.” Likewise, Liam O’Flaherty starts out “The Sniper” by writing, “Dublin lay enveloped in darkness but for the dim light of the moon that shone through fleecy clouds, casting a pale light as of approaching dawn over the streets . . .” However, by the third paragraph of “The Sniper” O’Flaherty scrivens, “He was eating a sandwich hungrily. He had eaten nothing since morning. He had been too excited to eat,” while Paulsen continues the same pattern of writing saying, “Later I saw the beauty of it, the falling lobes of blue ice that had grown as the water froze and refroze, layering on itself.” Even though the very beginning of “The Sniper” collates with the beginning of “The Dogs Could Teach Me,” in the sense that both writers start out with very strong descriptions, Paulsen’s portrayals become more powerful because of how consistent they are. Between Paulsen and O’Flaherty’s pieces of writing above, the reader gains a clearer picture of the ambience surrounding Paulsen in “The Dogs Could Teach Me” than of O’Flaherty’s character eating a sandwich due to the shift of focus O’Flaherty decides to take. Paulsen’s main goal out of the two examples above was very evidently to describe these situations, howbeit, O’Flaherty’s was not. Since the author of “The Sniper” decides to turn to action-based writing instead of creating vivid pictures in the third paragraph, it causes “The Dogs Could Teach Me” to become a better example of description than “The Sniper.”
Animals can play a significant role in a human's life. Some animals that we know do that are dogs. Dogs can change a human's life in a positive way. Some dogs are trained then later used in war. Other dogs are used as pets and to cheer their owners up that suffer from PTSD. In the article “Feeling Depressed? There’s a Dog for That” by Jacqueline Bennett as you get to the 12th paragraph it says “There are a growing number of organizations dedicated to training service dogs to help those suffering from PTSD, particularly veterans. In fact, dogs have been proven so effective at helping combat anxiety, stress, and depression, the government

Books teach you things you never knew. They allow you to escape reality and enter someone else's world. Books
Imagine coming home, and opening the door to see a dog run up to you and greet you with barks and licks. A lot of people want a dog like that, or just a good dog; but what dog is right for you? If you’re a first time owner, you might want to steer clear of these three dogs: the Chow Chow, the Border Collie, and the Rottweiler or just plain Rottie.

I understand both sides of the “Brig your dog to work program”, but I don’t think it is a good idea. I have a dog and I love dogs, but many people aren’t as comfortable around them because some dogs bite, or act badly when they’re stressed out. Just like people do, dogs get stressed when they’re introduced into new enviroments, and they might get stressed, they may act wonderful around the house or around people they know, but that doesn’t mean they will act well to changes.
