i've never been much of an animal person.
we didn't have pets growing up.
i wasn't really even around pets growing up.
my extreme fear of dogs up until age 12 didn't really help.
sure, we had a pet turtle for a couple years. but once my family gave her away, my heart was broken and i decided i will never have room to love another animal. (click here for that sad saga)
every time someone pins this on pinterest i laugh.
... because, yeah. i don't like dogs.
and people do question the existence of my heart and soul.
i don't like horses, cats, birds. i HATE snakes and lizards and slimy things.
i'm not one of those people who wants to go save abused or orphaned animals, i don't get emotional about animal deaths, and i yawn through animal movies. one time i told my mom that i would be fine if every other animal was wiped off the face of the earth except for cows and chickens. i love my burgers. and you can't have a cafe rio chicken salad without the chicken!
with all of that being said, can i contradict myself and show you this picture?
