Dori's narrative is a heart-touching and zany blend of actual events in the life of a young Boxer. With edgy charm, she takes us on a romp through her world in such a way we can't help but reconsider our lives. Through her we get a dog's-eye view on human exploitation of animals. This unique approach is hauntingly effective.--Dr. Will Tuttle, author of the acclaimed Amazon #1 best-seller The World Peace Diet, published in 16 languages, recipient of the Courage of Conscience Award and the Empty Cages Prize

Dori is a dog with attitude! You will laugh and cry as you share her world view about everything from factory farms, climate change, roadkill, and imperialism, to the hilarious encounters with her human extended family. This is the perfect gift for someone who is ready to "connect the dots" and needs a little help from a feisty white boxer!
Clever. Funny. Haunting. Laugh and cry. Dori will change you!
