A few of you commented on my “SHTF Dogs Liability or Asset?” post. I had to laugh. One thing I’ve learned writing this blog is that if you can make one post into two – you do. The dog post for example, you wrote as though I hadn’t considered dogs as a food source, but I have . . . oh, I have.
NEVERTHELESS! You provided insight I hadn’t considered, wisdom you bestowed, and THUS, wisdom to share with the masses. Been Around, Sput, YOU are hereby official members of the STHFblog SHTF homie club. Oh yes, membership has no privileges, but welcome aboard.

Ranger — You forget that dog is a food source for many peoples — Caan-cho is (sp.?) is Viet for dog stew — as far as fido as an auxillary heat source, think Three Dog night, named for just that.
Now . . . . let us dine . . . . on K-9.
If Wiki is to be trusted, in some countries certain breeds of dogs are raised for their meat. Source: “Though the consumption of dog meat is generally viewed as taboo in Western Culture, some Westerners support the right to eat dog meat and accuse other Westerners who protest against dog eating in other countries of cultural imperialism and intolerance.” They even have a nutritional chart there.
This site seems to tick a lot of people off: http://www.deliciousdogs.com/. If you want the full on view go see the research by Dr. Dogmeat. Dog meat is big business in South Korea where you can get grilled Fido from street vendors packaged hot in doggy bags.
So SHTF homies, the chips are down, things ain’t lookin’ good, the neighbor’s dog has pissed you off before . . . lean . . . free range . . . goes great with onions . . . .
That’s one thing, but what if it was your dog . . . how hungry would you have to be?
