The first book I've read that was written by a dog, a white boxer named Dori (short for Dorothea). A little difficult to read until you get used to dogspeak. If you're already a vegan, you'll love it. If you're not, you may be motivated to become one after reading it. Full review here: ...more

Who better to speak on the importance (planetary and humanitarian) of a plant based diet than a vegan dog named Dori? The Dog Who Ate Vegetables and Saved the Planet is most likely, unlike anything you’ve read before. It is both a story and an appeal, in which the protagonist, a white boxer named Dori, asks her readers to remember what the truth of eating meat truly is; inhumane, unneccessary, planet-taxing murder.

This was such a delightful read! The message is clear but built around a unique way of storytelling. We need to do better for all animals and the environment, the way this story is told through the view of Dori, a beloved boxer, is perfect. It is very easy to visualize Dori telling her tales and making all of the connections for us humans as to why we should do better. I highly recommend this book!

Dori the vegan white boxer dog sharing life with her coauthor human and giving us a waggish account of what's really happening in the world concerning human disregard and cruelty to animals.

I LOVE LOVED this book. Dori the white boxer shares her dog's-eye view on human exploitation of animals and her partner in book authoring and hauntingly effective truth telling is Meg Hurley.

This book has to be read to truly do it justice. Highly recommended!
