Take off the "almost". Just "to a fault".<quoted text>
Always been an animal lover - the bleeding heart type - almost to a fault.
Picture watching Benji and someone sitting behind you sniveling like it's a scene from Schindler's List.
Even though I cried watching that too.
Have had many confrontations and potential confrontations in my lifetime when it comes to an animal's welfare over a human's stupidity.
But I'm sure you're an animal lover too and cried watching Benji.
