Dear Rodolfo,
Since you quoted Mahatma Gandhi, ask yourself this question.
Why only dogs? It applies to pretty much every animal on earth. Can we all stop eating meat altogether?

Thanks for conversing with the North Koreans
I assume you are largely responsible for North Korea wanting to talk with the President Trump. Thank you for your role in this communication. I hope the nuclear situation will work out the best for all parties involved.

Dog Meat Trade
Dear Consulate Staff,

Can I have your attention please ?
Dogs are wonderful animals, and we humans must be grateful for al the help they give us.
They are used for helping disabled people, blind humans ,as companions for elderly people. There are drug detecting dogs , rescue dogs, they can even detect cancer in humans. But apart from being so useful, they are man's best friend !

And what are the South Korean people doing with these lovely animals ,dogs and cats also ? They are eating them !

But before being eaten, they have to suffer atrociously . They have to live in extremely small cages . And at the end of their miserable lives, they are tortured , skinned alive, cooked alive and/or their fur is burned off alive. It makes me cry.

I can feel that you must be ashamed that your people are committing such barbaric acts against animals.

Do not ignore it. Ignoring is even worse than doing it.

Mahatma Gandhi once said, "The greatness of a nation can be judged by the way its animals are treated”

Sincerely, with much respect,
