Dog Festival

This dog festival or dog meat festival is bad because PEOPLE BUY AND EAT DOGS! This is in Yulin and Jay Chou spoke against this a year or two ago, and I’m sure other celebrities have voiced their distaste for this holiday.  Check out this short video from an NY Times Contributor.

Activists spend a lot of money to buy these dogs to save them, and because Chinese are bargainer, sellers want to make as much money as possible by selling their merchandise to people who see beyond their merchandise.

This is one reason why foreigners think Chinese people are weird and barbaric; because they eat this cute and loyal animal … along with monkey brain and shark fin soup (pork blood is ok – the pig dies either way so use everything).  The monkey brain and shark fin soup are happening less and less because Chinese know more and becoming less of an economic class issue.  The only way I can defend people eating these things are for survival.

It’s obvious I detest such a holiday.  Anyone who participate(s/d) in want to weigh in?

I began writing Elle's Adventure in China (EACh) in June 2014 as a fun summer project, but as obstacles kept interfering with my plans, I forked and forked more options. I took writing this novel much more seriously in mid-July, and want to have it officially published someday in my lifetime. As many artists put their hearts into their projects, so do I. I did not start out liking to read, but a professor suggested a book for me for homework a few years ago, and it was an amazing book. Since then, I read for pleasure, and I hope my novel, Elle's Adventure in China, does the same for as many of you as possible. The same thing goes to writing. I did not like to write until I took a course where the professor and papers made me love to write. I hope every one of you find what makes you happy and dedicated to work. In May 2015, I started my other blog, Read and Write Here (R&WH), as a place to post other things that aren't China- and Chinese culture-related and not EACh. I share some of my memories and experiences from student teaching, irregular participation in Daily Prompts, etc. I'd like to have regular people and bloggers to write book reviews and post it on R&WH someday. Keep reading and writing!
