Almost Wordless Wednesday: Oreilly

I wrote the Marine Mammal Center and asked for an update on Oreilly, and for a photo if they had one. Here is the photo they sent. Look at those eyes! He has gained eight pounds and is improving. When he first arrived at the center on March 16th, the day he was rescued, there were only 48 Elephant Seals there. Now they have 104. We're still hopeful that he will thrive and survive and make it back to the sea. We cheer for him everyday-- OREILLY!!!

  5. Thank you so much for the update on Oreilly. He is a cutie. Wonderful that this has a happy ending. Hope they keep you in the loop. It is because of you and Roger that he is so bright eyed and been given another chance. Feel good about that.
