Um.... I thought pork was "the other white meat".

So, the thing about pork being toxic to dogs is an old wive's tale then? My parents always said never to give a dog pork because it makes them ill. Guess it's not true then.

Doesn't matter 'cause I don't eat pork anyway.

ah yes, the "other white meat" marketing success

somebody else somewhere explained it better than i could..

Quote:
Pork is considered a red meat. In the mid 80's, when health-conscience consumers decided that red meat was unhealthy, the pork industry lost sales dramatically. In an effort to regain lost ground, the Pork Council started a catchy and attractive campaign ("The other white meat") in 1987. The campaign worked-- the demand for pork quickly rose. In fact, today's pork prices rise at a rate faster than the cost of living inflation. During the shift of perception, though, people began to refer to it as a white meat rather than a red meat (9 out of 10 people recognize the slogan).

You may find this link of interest when it comes to the changing face of pork:
http://www.nppc.org/resources/nutrition.html. Basically, pork has become
a competitive, nutritive rival to lean poultry.
yeah our farmed pork is clean, i don't eat it much myself (except for mmmm bacon!) and so far the dogs have been doing excellent on it

Can't remember the last time I had pork, 'cept bacon and ham. Honestly, the reason I don't eat it is that I just don't like it, I don't like the taste and the smell of it cooking makes me sick (unless it's smoked). This really does work out perfectly seeing that I'm marrying a Muslim (they don't eat pork). People tend to ask me if I'm Jewish when they find out that I don't eat it (or if I've converted to Islam when they find out about the fiance).
