★★★★★ 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 youve 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.

Midwest Book Review — Reviewer’s Bookwatch: June 2020

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 Helped Save 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 animals truly is; inhumane, unnecessary, planet-taxing murder. In captivating dog-honesty, stream of consciousness narrative, Dori meanders through dog speak; what she’s learned in her life, what her humans Meg and Jack have shared with her, and what she thinks of how her fellow animals are treated. This book is not a diatribe on veganism. It is a book that implores readers to consider the real implications of our eating habits and questions the cost. READ MORE>>>

Valley News – More about dogs and plant-based diets

Tom Ryan isn’t the only New Hampshire author writing about dogs. Although in Claremont writer Margaret Hurley’s case, the anthropomorphized canine is her co-author.

The Dog Who Ate the Vegetable Garden and Helped Save the Planet is narrated by Hurley’s boxer, Dorothea, who, as the title suggests, likes to eat vegetables and is kind of full of herself. The extent to which a reader engages with Dori’s account of her owner’s activism on behalf of the vegan diet, animal liberation and other causes is likely to be in direct proportion to the reader’s interest in those causes. Dori “writes” in short sentences, the kind of thoughts one might imagine a dog would have, if one were deeply invested in imagining a dog’s thoughts. The book was published earlier this year by Guernica World Editions. — Alex Hanson 9.6.19
