Good Dog 
In a blog several days ago I made reference to Wok Dog.  I suggested that it was a delicacy in some Asian cultures. I made that up. I have no idea if dog is ever prepared in a Wok.  I meant no disrespect to any dog owner or Asian chef. 
I know that some may have taken offense at this passage and even been repulsed by the thought.  Some of my vegan friends are offended at the consumption of any animal. They honor all animals and would not harm them especially to slaughter as food. (Carrots, however, should run in abject fear).
Sometimes for the sake of comedy one will lose their internal social filter and inadvertently offend. I feel that is what happened earlier in the week.  I was going for a silly joke and Wok dog seemed to fit that moment. I should have rewritten and reconsidered.
So for the record let me say for a fact that no one should ever prepare dog in a Wok.  The best way to serve a dog is by slow roasting in the oven, 450 degrees on a baking sheet for 45 minutes.
As you were,

I forgot to mention when I read it: that whole exchange of dialogue was hilarious.
Also: I used to love the wok dog one could buy at the county fair, though eating it was always chancy. Never could be sure it wasn't tainted with beef or chicken. :-)
