I kind of wondered where you were going with the whole "animals we should not eat" concept.

It's pretty simple, all in all.  These animals should not be eaten.You'll never see a chicken in here, for what it's worth.

Heh. Is the logic that this dog should not be eaten because:

1. He's a hero,

2. He's a dog,

3. He's been dead since 2009, or

4. Some combination of the above?

Any or all of the above could easily apply, but most animals will make his list due to their intelligence, empathy, emotions(ascribed or otherwise), or cuteness, rather than the state of decay on their body and related health risks of eating decayed flesh.

Okay, that's actually way more empathetic than Pulp Fiction's reason for not eating dogs. 

I average ~20% more empathetic than Pulp Fiction.

In general that's a good policy in life. 

Endal learned how to use an ATM! 

"Over the years, Endal has learned to pull the plug out of the bath before going for help if Allen falls unconscious whilst bathing, and is able to put Allen in the recovery position, hit the emergency button on the telephone and summon help ... Endal has learned how to use ATMs as well as Chip and pin machines, as well as helping out with shopping, opening train doors, operating lifts, unloading the washing machine and more typical doggie skills like getting the paper."[18]

Parton states that Endal's ability to comprehend his wishes and needs showed when they first met, and was responsible for helping him recover from the initial deep depression and trauma caused by his disability.[1]

Endal came again to national attention in a 2001 incident, when Allen was knocked out of his wheelchair by a passing car. Endal pulled Allen, who was unconscious, into the recovery position, retrieved his mobile phone from beneath the car, fetched a blanket and covered him, barked at nearby dwellings for assistance, and then ran to a nearby hotel to obtain help."[23]

Sheesh, that dog is smarter than I am.

No capes!

I only now realized that dog is wearing a cape.
