Guestbook for Leaky Tub

  1. I hope you will take after anthropologist Mary Leakey (pun intended) and be strong, smart, and determined. All the best of luck during your time in Vancouver.

  2. Ha ha what a silly name “Leaky Tub”. I bet there is a funny story that comes along with that. Ou look like you are a tiny little pup so drink your milk and learn to eat your fishes okay? They will help you grow big and strong so you can get back to your wonderful home in the ocean. Sending you lots of love and healthy thoughts.

  3. Oh how I miss you leaky tub. You were such a smart pup and found shelter on the fastest speedboat on the dock. Leaky tub had other plans that day.

  4. Hi there Leaky tub- That name still makes me laugh. You’ve been in the care of MMRC for several months now. It says you are in fish school which means you have worked very hard to learn how to eat your fishes. I bet you are feeling much better because you’ve gained wait and grown bigger and stronger. Keep up the good work and I bet you will get moved to a bigger pool very soon. Keep up the good work my funny seal friend.
