We love us some Jonathan Safran Foer, and that’s because he has inspired so many people to forgo using animal products and food, including celebs like Natalie Portman and Anne Hathaway.

But the author of “Eating Animals” recently had an interview with The Guardian, where he revealed that the one person in his life he can’t convince to go animal friendly is his dog.

“I tried, but it just didn’t sit well with her stomach,” the 33-year-old vegetarian said. “I don’t feel guilty about it— dogs aren’t people.”

Okay, so his dog isn’t a vegan, but Foer has found a way to make it a bit more environmentally friendly. “I buy dog food for her that is advertised as non-factory farmed. Curiously it’s no more expensive,” he said.

Also in the interview Foer explained when he stopped eating meat and why. “Aged nine was probably the first time I became vegetarian,” he stated. The author was, “influenced by Melissa, our babysitter, who, offered chicken, said: ‘No, I don’t want to hurt anything.'”

Maybe all Foer’s dog needs is a Melissa-like moment in its life, does anyone have advice for Foer in terms of how to help his dog go green?
