Guestbook for Lucky

  1. Oh cute Lucky! Hi there precious seal pup. You are a lucky guy to be rescued and taken to MMRC so they can take wonderful care of you. Sending you lots of love, hope and healthy thoughts. Be strong and keep being brave little pupper.

  2. Hey Lucky!…..We are all rooting for you here @ IMFS……Hope you get lots of TLC so you can get back out to the Ocean or even come back up the Fraser River to come for a visit at IMFS yard.;)

  3. Hi again Mr. Lucky pup- I came to check on you and leave you a happy note. You’ve been in the care of MMRC for several months now so I know you are doing well. It says you graduated to fish school so way to go buddy! I hope you pay close attention to your teachers so you become an expert at competing for fish and you eat bunches and bunches of them. They will help you grow bigger and stronger which means you can be released back to your home in the big blue ocean very soon. Keep up the good work!
