Guestbook for Borris

  1. Hi Mr. Borris- the cutest seal pup with such a pretty dark gray face. Sending you prayers and love so you can grow big and strong okay?

  2. Hi Borris- I came to check on you and leave you a happy note. You’ve been in the care of MMRC for several months now and it says you’ve graduated to fish school. I hope you are paying close attention to your teachers so you become a star student and learn how to eat all your fishes. That way you will grow bigger and stronger and get to go back to your home in the big blue ocean where many adventures are waiting for you. Be well and take care sweet Borris pup.
