On a snowy Sunday morning in January 2016, I walked into a shop in the city of Riga and picked up a pack of stray dog tags.
They had been purchased by a woman named Lolly, who had been collecting them since the mid-1990s.
I was about to head to the farm and buy a set of them myself, she said.
It was the most expensive thing she had ever bought, and it was a sign of how desperate she was for fur.
But after I bought them, I found out that the farm had been sold to a company called Animal Crossing: New Leaf.
Lolly and her husband have since relocated to Florida and started a new fur farm, Animal Crossing Animal Crossing (also known as Animal Crossing for short), which is now in its third year.
It’s not exactly the world’s cheapest fur farm.
It costs around 100,000 rubles ($1,900) to buy and it takes six weeks to bring them to market.
But this time around, it has a new owner.
As of September 2018, the Riga fur farm has received more than 50,000 signatures from fur-loving residents.
A lot of them are fans of Animal Crossing and Animal Crossing New Leaf, but they want the animal’s likeness to be on the farm.
The Riga farm owner, Olga Zolotov, said she started the business to give fur farmers in her region the opportunity to get a little more attention from the public.
But she said she’s also happy to give her furry customers a little bit of love too.
“I think it is the right thing to do,” she said, “but I don’t want it to be seen as some kind of marketing tactic.”
The fur farm’s owners said that the reason for their fur farm is simple: It helps the fur industry, which has been growing steadily in Russia.
According to the Fur Association of Russia, the industry grew at a rate of 22% in 2017, compared to the previous year.
However, the trade in fur is still in its infancy.
Fur farming is one of the oldest trades in Russia, but the industry is still relatively new.
The fur industry has grown steadily in the country over the past few decades, but it hasn’t always been as active as it is today.
According the Fur Associations of Russia and Belarus, in 2017 there were around 20,000 fur farms in Russia alone.
In contrast, the number of licensed fur farms increased by almost 60% between 2015 and 2017.
“We’re now witnessing a growth in the industry in Russia,” said Vladimir Gudkov, head of the Fur Trade Association of Belarus, a trade group.
“There’s a lot of people who have started their own fur farms, and we are seeing a lot more businesses and enterprises coming in.”
In the past, it was only possible to purchase fur on a small scale, which is why the fur trade was so secretive.
“This was because people were afraid to come forward, so they didn’t even show their face,” said Gudov.
Now, many fur farmers are looking to open up to the public and make it easier for people to buy their fur.
“It’s important to make the public aware of the industry, so that people can come and buy the fur,” Gudev said.
to the Federation of Fur Trade Associations in Russia and the Republic of Belarus (RFSA), there are about 300,000 registered fur farms.
Many of these are small farms, but some are larger, with thousands of people working on them.
Gudiv said that they are now seeing the popularity of fur farming increase.
“The demand for fur has been increasing,” he said.
“And so the industry has become a lot bigger.”
The popularity of the fur farm industry is a result of the growing popularity of gaming in Russia over the last few years.
“Gaming is a very lucrative industry, and there are a lot to choose from,” said Mikhail Kuznetsov, president of the RFA.
“But the fur business is a special one, because it is very popular in Russia.”
But while the popularity may be growing, the fur farmers say they are still struggling to keep up with demand.
“People don’t like to buy the furry stuff, because they think it’s not ethical,” said Zolotte.
“They don’t think it looks good.”
For Lolly Zolottova, the most important part of her fur farm project is to make it as easy as possible for people.
“As soon as I have the tags, I will start to sell them,” she told me.
“You don’t have to buy it, and you don’t even have to give your name, because we’ll give your fur to someone else.
It is not an easy task, but that’s how we are doing it.”
Lolly has been raising her animals for a long time.
She started raising her own dog, Risa, in 2008.
