First from a rational appeal, the author challenges you to remove the emotion or stigma from the act of using a dog for meat. He does a good job at this by questioning why the act of eating a dog is any different from other animals. If we can agree that all animals can feel and have some range of emotion, then what makes a dog a superior species? The author uses the
Dog Food Fried, Flipped and Devoured Eating dog food may not be seen as the easiest thing to stomach because the smell, texture and by-products found within the mixture are thought of as awful and revolting. In Ann Hodgman’s “No Wonder They Call Me a Bitch”, although the title may suggest otherwise, different types of dog food are discussed. In this essay, Hodgman aims to inform her readers about the inequality in different types of dog food, as well as to entertain and amuse. Hodgman is writing to a broad audience, one of dog lovers and owners, as well as those that may be curious as to what is really in dog food, or more generally the packaging and processing of mass-produced food of any kind. Language, description and humor are
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
The first disappointment she encounters is the quality of the dog foods. Hodgman expected to open packages filled with real meat, as advertisers relentlessly remind buyers of a dog’s love for real meat. The Gaines burger could neither be described as poor beef, rich beef or even beef at all. It couldn’t be fried and did not have that “real beef smell”. Ann describes it as being very malleable, “something you could make at home if you had a Play-DOH Fun Factory.” (107). The Kal Kan pedigree meals were also amiss. Ann’s words to describe these are lumpy, purple, stringy and veiny.
“A person can learn a lot from a dog, even a loopy one like ours...he taught me about friendship and selflessness and, above all else, unwavering loyalty,” says John Grogan, author of Marley & Me. Although dogs are just animals, they can bring out the best characteristics in people. Recently, an exploration of one of the most well-known pieces of canine non-fiction and an exploration of my own life has taught me just how true this is. In John Grogan’s Marley & Me and in my life, patience, flexibility, and love are frequently illustrated.
“No Wonder They Call Me a Bitch” by the humorist Ann Hodgman is the result of the author trialing dog food for a week. Her descriptions created a horribly vivid image in the head of the reader, effectively showing the obvious problem of the dog food industry. This satirical essay highlights the misconception between what is on the label and what is inside.
In Ann Hodgman’s essay, “No Wonder They Call Me a Bitch,” she elaborates in grand detail her experience eating dog food. Hodgman’s purpose is to inform her readers what it is like to eat food that is intended to be consumed by dogs. She uses as much detail as possible
To some dogs are loyal companions, trusting friends and loving family members with an extra tail or two. To others, dogs are bloody sacrifices to deities or even a tasty part of tonight’s meal. Regardless of the practice and culture, love or lack thereof, dogs have been and will continue to play an integral part in humanity. Although revolting and macabre to many dog lovers and Western audiences alike, Johnathon Safran Foer’s “Let Them Eat Dog: A Modest Proposal for Throwing Fido in the Oven” argues and suggests that eating dogs is perfectly justifiable as is eating beef, chicken and pork. In Foer’s work, the instinctive idea that dogs are solely “man’s best friend” is reevaluated and reexamined to include “potentially poaching the
The local butcher was the first to realise what Kev could do for business. Having someone pointing out the qualities of “his butcher’s meat” in a friendly, funny and persuasive way turned out to be a real money spinner.

Red Dog leaped out of the car and turned back as thought he was thanking the driver for the free ride to Onslow. He had never been here before and did not know his way around the town, the only thing guiding him was his sense of smell. He wandered around following the unmistakable smell of juicy sausages drifting in the air that led him to a small park filled with people chatting and children playing.
It is getting very late, and cold. Rebecca can’t properly think anymore, since all of her brain cells are now working at a very fast rate. Why the letter ‘’O’’. She was familiar with similar cases in which the murderer would leave a big piece of evidence on purpose just to make it special and gruesome, but right now, it felt like the Ripper case all over again.

My last job had been as a checkout chick, but because I had developed such a strong passion for animal well-fair, occasionally when scanning someone's shopping, If i saw a tray of glad-wrapped meat on the conveyor thing, I’d hold the slab of meat up into the air and say “this is someone's child!”
