 ** smooth liver pate will do as well.

 NOTES : During my wedding reception, my brother- in-law suggested we add to the
feast by having dog stew.  Wanting to be part of the family, and having been
subjected to all sorts of socials tests already,  I agreed. The result was...
well.. a lot better than I expected. In fact, it was great!
 
 It was only later I found out that dog should *not* be served at weddings, as
it may make the bride and groom flight like dogs during the honeymoon. But what
the heck. It didn't seem to have that effect... at least not until a few year
later.	:-)
 
 For the faint of heart, you can always substitute lamb in place of next door’s
rover, but the meat will not be as sweet or as rich in flavor.
