I read this and wondered why you did not mention veal.

@caffeien Good point. One of my favorite places to eat in Monterrey Mexico serves baby goat.

Seeing a puppy coat would make me really, really sad.

i think the cruelty comes in the way the animal is killed or contained. for example if you eat beef you eat cows, but i believe the cows should be treated humanely (at least decently) while living and if killed, killed fast and in a nonpainful way
as far as bad taste, no one wants to see their pet draped around someone else's neck. if you see a puppy coat, that puppy coat can trigger reminders of your own puppy and just piss you off
but if you ask PETA, they'll say if you can eat cows, you can eat puppies, it's the same in their eyes.
as far as where the line is? i dunno...

I don't like the consistency of veal. It isn't that age of the animal so much as I was a little girl when I last tried veal, and I didn't like it. I don't think I have had young animal anything, except the veal. As an adult, the age thing may bother me. As for domesticated animals, it isn't prevelent here to eat them. This is not so in most countries, however. I couldn't imagine eating dog, but to have a coat made out of my dogs fur, uh... NO. It would be beautiful , but EW!!! Maybe a rug...

be careful, a lot of jackets with faux fur collars that come from China are actually DOG FUR.

I cannot eat anything where I suspect cruetly and inhumane conditions. I imagine there are a lot of things I eat that would absolutely disgust me if I were to witness the entire process from birth of the animal to the butchering process. We do use calfskin, we do use rabbit, we do use horsehair - I personally don't buy it.

I won't eat veal or foie gras, I don't judge those who do but I just don't like the way those animals are treated. I'm not one of those wackos like PETA either, I just choose not to eat those particular foods. A steak from a full grown cow is a different matter altogether, grill it up and slap it on plate!

There are some cultures that are largely illiterate. So, in their grocery stores, all the cans, jars and boxes bear pictures of the ingredients that the foods are made from.

You should see how those people react the first time they see a jar of Gerbers baby food.
