Eating dog is quite common in parts of China, some cities specialize in it. A few years ago I had a friend visit me while I was living in China. He wanted to go to a dog restaurant for lunch, and see what it tasted like. Anyway we had dog soup and some dog BBQ. He liked it. Later that evening we were walking past another restaurant and he suggested we have another meal, with dog meat. My friend ended up in hospital. After dinner he was out chasing motor bikes and got hit by a truck.
