Vegan Story: My dogs are the reason why I went vegetarian first
and 4 years later vegan. One day, while taking them for a walk, I realized that they are not different than a pig, or a cow. Different shape, perhaps, but they still have blood thorough their veins, feel,pain, and feel love...I went vegan after realizing that being vegetarian I was still contributing to the suffering of farm animals.
