Well, "food" animals have been evolving with us for 15-8k years too. Not much of an argument there. Not to mention the moral argument is trivial to shoot down by simple equivalence to other animals. South Park did a good job of mocking this viewpoint in the episode where Stan sets out to stop Japanese whaling.

Though ironically while they are right in principle the example is bad since whales are rare and too intelligent to be slaughtered.

My only objection to eating dogs is that it is inefficient, better fatten up some piglets. I'd probably still be grossed out at the thought of eating dog but that is more of an ingrained cultural thing than a moral one.
