Guestbook for Cream Puff

  1. Hi Cream Puff!

    I am so happy to see you are doing well… I was the one who found you on Sandy Cove Beach. I thought I was checking into the correct sight but could never find you. I was so worried, but today here you are and I am so happy!!! You have made my weekend:)
    Rest up and work on getting stronger! Even when you were very weak you were beautiful!! I would like to fund your care or at least some of it. If someone could get back to me regarding this I would be grateful.
    Thank you for taking such good care of Cream Puff! Kim xox

  2. Hi cute Cream Puff! So thankful Kim was able to find you and get you to the MMRC for the very best care. Its been a little over a month since they have been taking care of you so I bet you are feeling much better. Have you lost all your baby fur yet? I hope you are learning all the seal skills they are teaching you and you are being a good student. Keep up the good work and I’ll check on you soon.

  3. Hi Cream Puff1

    Congratulations on graduating into Fish school!! You are so much stronger and healthier than the day I found you on Sandy Cove Beach!! Please continue to work hard and someday soon you will be able to swim again in the wilds of the great North Pacific Ocean.
    Thank you to everyone at the marine mammal rescue for taking care of you and all your friends at the rescue centre … my oh my it looks like it has been a very busy summer for the crew!
