Guestbook for Selkie Dawn

  1. Hi Selkie Dawn- Sending you lots of love and prayers so you can get well soon okay? MMRC is a wonderful place and they will give you lots of love and care.

  2. Happy to see Selkie is doing well. We found him by our dock and watching him go down to the water and then back away made us worry. Even though we tried to keep people away we knew that mom wasn’t coming back. Grow big and strong Selkie.

  3. Hi there cute Selkie Dawn- I came to check on you since its been several months that you’ve been in MMRC’s wonderful care. It says you are in fish school so I hope you have been paying close attention and are learning how to compete for all the fishes you can eat. You were a tiny little pup when you were admitted so I bet you have learned a lot and have grown much bigger and stronger. Keep up the good work sweet Selkie.
