Tuna Lab Mascot and #1 Good Girl 

Tuna is enthusiastic about environmental chemistry as long as treats are on the table. She is not good about keeping safety goggles on or wearing closed toe shoes, so she mostly stays outside of the lab. Tuna loves running, walking, snacking, wagging her tail, attacking sprinklers, and kissing whoever will give her just the tiniest bit of affection.
