This white boxer dog got more than he bargained for when he wandered into the sea off the coast of Scotland to get his owner’s ball back… The seal suddenly appeared and patted the boxer dog on the face during the unusual encounter. The young dog noticed the baby seal with its head poking out the water and the baby seal bobbed up to say hello too! ♥
Olympia has a white lanugo coat, an indication that she was born prematurely. Tim Lebling, ASLC Stranding Coordinator, stated, “It is likely that Olympia was abandoned by her mother, as we commonly find that seals abandon their premature pups.” Olympia is currently in “good but guarded” condition, and will be cared for until she can be released back into the wild. She ASLC’s first stranded Seal in 2012. (via zooborns)
The sea lion came from a bay, went through a residential area, across roads, under a gate, through a cat door, up some stairs, and onto a couch where it cuddled up and tried to sleep.
“I thought ‘I’m hallucinating, this is just wrong,” sad Annette Swoffer, the woman who owns the house. She called the SPCA and they brought the sea lion back to the water.
