I realise that any reservations I held about eating 'man's best friend' are purely cultural. Hindus don't eat cows, Jews don't eat pigs and apparently secular Australians, such as myself, don't eat dogs. But here in Cambodia, eating dog meat appears as routine as eating battered fish and hot chips would be at home.
