Dog meat is sometimes called 'fragrant meat' in China.
Dog meat is also known as "fragrant meat," a euphemism that is derived from an old saying that "no immortal can purify his mind when the fragrance of dog meat lingers." Canine meat is fancied by the Cantonese in South China and by a Korean ethnic group living along the Chinese border with North Korea.
