Welcome news today for all you herbivore fans of the Los Angeles Dodgers. The sudden disappearance of the vegetarian Dodger dog looks to be short-lived.

What, you ask? Seriously, for the past few years Dodger Stadium has been one of the few Major League ballparks with seriously top-notch soy dogs in house. The veggie dogs were only available at two specific stands (one in the reserved seats level, and one in the lower box level), but they did have them.

Then this week, the veggie dog disappeared.

The item was mysteriously scratched off the menu at the food stands in question -- and salespeople said they were gone. For good.

Today, crackerjack investigative reporting has revealed: Veggie dogs will resume sales at the stadium soon.

Jason (no surname given) with Dodger Stadium concessions relayed to LAist that the stadium's primary food distributor stopped selling the product last week -- leaving the team in the lurch. But the concessions department immediately began to scour the country for vegetarian alternatives to the world-famous Dodger Dog and the team now has several leads on new suppliers. They may even airmail the veggie dogs in for this weekend's series versus the Pittsburgh Pirates.

More importantly, LAist was assured Dodger Stadium will have the veggie dogs on hand for the Giants series the week of July 4. Phew. What would all those San Franciscans done without their soy products and human growth hormone!
