Dogs, unlike cats, are capable of surviving, though not necessarily thriving, on a plant based diet. They are very adaptable that way but are designed by nature to eat meat.

It is pretty obvious by looking at their teeth, understanding their digestive tract and even how they process proteins, carbs, and fats somewhat differently than we do. If you would prefer a vegetarian pet, I would recommend rabbits or goats, both of whom actually have quite the personalities.

As far as the sister, I am not sure the point or value of adding that information.
