Our animal experts speak Spanish

(Note: The Animal Store blog is “written” by our spokesfish, Ernie the Giant Gourami.)

So, did you know we speak Spanish here at The Animal Store. And by we, I don’t mean Kenn. As Kenn says, English is his second language, he doesn’t have a first. Luckily, he was smart enough to hire Yussel, who speaks fluent Spanish.

Yussel is our store manager. She loves animals and knows a lot about us. She really likes the birds (don’t ask me why; everyone knows that fish are much cuter than birds), but she knows her way around the fish aisle, too … and the small animals … and the reptiles. She’s not afraid of anything, either. I’ve even seen her pick up the scorpions and tarantulas right in her hand. You won’t catch my fins anywhere near a scorpion.

Be sure to say hola to Yussel the next time you visit. And remember, our animals are all fluent in the only language that really counts — the language of love.

The Spanish version of this post appears directly below this one.

Nuestros expertos en animales hablan español

(Nota: El blog de The Animal Store es escrito por nuestro portavoz pez, Ernie el Gourami Gigante.)

Sabían que hablamos español en la Tienda de Animales (The Animal Store). Y cuando digo hablamos no me refiero a Kenn. ¡Así es! Kenn dice que el Ingles es su segundó lenguaje pero en realidad ni un primer lenguaje tiene. Afortunadamente, el fue lo suficientemente inteligente para contratar a Yussel, quien si habla el español con fluidez soltura.

Yussel es nuestra gerente de la tienda. Ella ama a los animales y tiene mucho conocimiento sobre nosotros. Le encantan los pájaros ( no me pregunten por qué, todos saben que los peces son muchísimo más bonitos que los pájaros) pero a pesar de eso ella también tiene mucho conocimiento en el área de peces, animales pequeños y reptiles. No le tiene miedo a nada, la he visto agarrar los escorpiones con su mano, ustedes no verán jamás a ninguna de mis aletitas cerca de algún escorpión.

Asegúrate de decirle “Hola” a Yussel la próxima vez que nos visites. Y recuerda, todos nuestros animales dominan bien el lenguaje que realmente importa—el lenguaje del amor.
