Well, It's a cultural thing. They don't see that dogs are different from chickens or pigs. Oh. Come to think of it. I don't see them as different either. But then I don't each chicken or pigs either.

I tried to count them up but I kept losing track. I think she has at least 20 gold medals over her career. She and her partner retired on Wednesday.

VeggieSince88 You're not kidding--those ARMS!!

Thanks for the info. I'm always glad to hear when someone of athletic prominence is vegan or vegetarian--it makes those naysayers have to think twice, you know?
