Carol: Hey Hurst! You know the news has been all a-buzz with animals this week!
Hurst: I see what you did there. We’ve got a story about bees.
Carol: Oh deer, you are on to my puns.
Hurst: Seriously, Carol? You are better than this. Yes, I enjoyed the video about the deer running with the jogger too.
Carol: I just want our readers to know that I’m funny, too.
Hurst: Ummm…I think you’ll need to keep trying. Did you notice we had two stories from Korea this week? One about cats and one about dogs. Way to go us keeping both target audiences happy!
Carol: But they aren’t the happiest of stories – stray cats and dogs wearing pollution masks. I know my dogs wouldn’t put up with that.
Hurst: We haven’t mentioned any animal celebrations lately, and we sure have some big ones coming up! All of next week is Animal Rights Awareness Week, not to mention World Sea Turtle Day on June 16th!
Carol: Oh right, I sea. What a fun week of celebrations!
Hurst: I’m gonna ignore that. See you next week!
