The Difference Between a Dog and a Cow

OK, given my views on eating animals, I'm not entirely unbiased about this one, but this just shouts double standards!

How is it more acceptable to eat a cow/pig/chicken/sheep/etc than a dog?

Of course, sentimentality is clearly a good measure for deservingness of life, isn't it? Following on those lines, perhaps, when we get short of food, we should start by eating the person with the least friends and work from there?
