Re: Vegetarian dog

I do not think it is fair to impose your lifestyle on others in general, especially where they have no choice in the matter (like a dog). Dogs are meant to eat meat in general and while you might be able to get away with a carefully chosen vegetarian diet I do not think this is fair on the dog. I al...
