The downtown lunch crowd might be surprised tomorrow, when they find a giant inflatable puppy dog on a bun staring into their eyes. The stunt is part of a campaign by Mercy For Animals and local animal-rights activists that asks the question: "Why love one, but eat the other?"

"We'll be urging the lunchtime crowd to question why we call some animals pets and others dinner," says Mercy for Animals national campaign coordinator Jeni Haines. "The truth is farm animals experience pain and suffering the same way as dogs and cats. So our message is that we can all boycott this cruelty by adopting a vegetarian lifestyle and diet."
