Guestbook for Macarena

  1. Hi there Macarena. What a fun dance and silly name. You’ve been at MMRC and in their care for 43 days so I bet you have grown big and strong since you were admitted. I know they will give you lots of TLC and teach you all the important seal things you need to know. Keep eating your fishes and drinking your milk. Sending you love and healthy, happy thoughts. Be well!

  2. Hi again Macarena- You have been in the care of MMRC for a couple months now so I bet you are doing well. I hope you have been moved to a larger pool so you can learn how to eat your fishes. I hope the next time I come to check on you they have released you into the big blue ocean for you to swim free and have lots of adventures. Keep up the good work cute pup!
