Deer Coral Puppies Kittens Snakes Invertebrates and the Year of the Vegan

Carol: Any resolutions for 2019, Hurst?

Hurst: Hmmm… I want to consume less animal products, lower my carbon footprint, and maybe learn Mandarin Chinese.

Carol: Well two of those sound a bit more doable, but I support you. I think it would be great if everyone tried to help animals in the new year! For example, knowing which products that you use test on animals.  It is shocking how many companies still do this.

Hurst: Sorry I zoned out, did you say test?  I haven’t studied.

Carol: It wouldn’t be the first time I’m sure. Anyway, see you next year!
