So this will be a quite long post but I will try to keep it as short as I can.
I want to tell you (or actually started out as me just writing it down) my journey in growing as a person, becoming more kind and aware of the impact my choices have. More aware of how important it is to do right since some things cannot be undone. My journey in becoming vegan.
So when I was really really young, I fell deeply in love with horses (still am). I really wanted one but my family couldn't afford it. So through the years I had other animals while growing up, a dog (that I can't really remember cause I was so little), cats, hamsters, guinea pig, rabbits, chickens and so on... And my dream jobs were (as of many children) becoming vet & also a model (well I at least accomplished one haha) .
At some point, I was unstoppable pain in the ass for my mother (father lived most of the time when I was young in Sweden, and me and my mom didn't moved here until 2006 ) and wanted dog. So my parents gave in.
When I was 9 years old I bought a dog, a Siberian husky. My father always wanted one (ironically he didn't even spend half of the year with us until I was 11 and we moved, neither did we do any research on husky breed...). Anyhow, at that time I had no idea that she would help me through so much darkness, my teenage years, me moving from home at young age, all the heartbreaks and the most important, that she would be my closest family member, at times my only family. Never judging me, never yelling on me and never raising a paw on me.
I didn't know that she would saved me and my life. So how irresponsible it was of my parents of letting a 9 year old buy a dog, I am so grateful for it.
My brothers and I used to visit Sweden during the summers, and sometimes they worked extra at a nearby chicken farm. I followed with them couple of times, and saw for my self what kind of torture and horrible living conditions the chickens had. I was just a kid but when I reflect on it today, this visions still haunt my mind.
Apparently I can't have all text in one post so... To be continued post II
