Dogs Whales Sheep Camels Parakeets Dolphins Chimps and Jerboas

Hurst: Hello Carol! How are you, Carol? So good to see you, Carol!

Carol: Hi Hurst, any reason you’re being especially strange today?

Hurst: Well, I read an interesting piece this week about how cats can recognize their own names and I wanted to see if you would too.

Carol: This is really groundbreaking research that you’re doing. I wish the readers could see the eye roll I just did. Changing the subject, National Dolphin Day is this week and we have a fascinating story detailing the symbiotic relationship between dolphins and humans that occurs only in a small population of dolphins.

Hurst: Wow and I thought the only holiday this week was tax day! On that note, I’m off to spend my return! See you next week.
