There's someone somewhere who would consider dog to be a wonderful addition to the meal. The ad doesn't take that into consideration. I get loyalty and devotion from my dog. I've been around turkeys, they're not that friendly. Wild turkey is pretty tough compared to farm turkey, that much I know for sure. I've never had Coyote. For all I know Coyote might be the game of choice compared to Wild Turkey. I've got to get a Korean cookbook for some ideas. Stay tuned.

Thought you guys would appreciate that.

As eager families travel to relatives’ homes this week to enjoy a Thanksgiving meal, they may be surprised by billboards from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals discouraging holiday merriment. The billboards are targeted at children, reading “KIDS: If you wouldn’t eat your dog, why eat a turkey? Go Vegan.” People for the Ethical Treatment of Animal’s latest advertising ploy in Nevada and California is sure to make people lose their appetites.

The animal rights group even took its attack on traditional Thanksgiving dinner all the way to the White House. On Tuesday, PETA...
