New Year’s Resolutions: Pet Edition

We humans are big on making New Year’s Resolutions: ways in which we’re going to be healthier, happier, friendlier, more productive, and everything else in the coming year. We don’t always follow through with our resolutions, but it’s still a nice exercise for assessing where you are and how you want to live.

This year at the Spot office, we’ve been wondering what kind of resolutions our pets might make. Here’s what we came up with…
