    Question "I like a dog." What does it mean?

    These three sentences, what do they mean? Oh my god~~~
    1. I like dog.
    2. I like a dog.
    3. I like dogs.

    They look similar, but they seem to present slight differences. I love this kind of animal? Or, I like to eat dog meat? Or, I like this dog, the one I'm staring at? or, any other meanings?

    Please tell me the exact meanings of these 3 sentences represently. Thank you very much!
