A pair of rescued elephant seals got a taste of freedom — and each other — when the Pacific Marine Mammal Center sent them back into the wild last Saturday. With well-wishers cheering, the pups shared a kiss before being shooed into the ocean.

Chicklet teh Squirrel was rescued by Heather and photographed by Lynn T. Chicklet suffered head trauma as a baby and is half the size of other grey squirrels but twice as round (even though she’s on a strict diet.) Chicklet’s admirers call her the ‘Perfectly Spherical Squirrel.’
One seal-ular sensation, every little flipper she waves.
One blubbery flotation, every move that she makes.
One smile and suddenly no other cute will do.
You know you’ll forever be lolling with you know who!
When it’s this cute, we don’t mind getting flippered off, Kimberly P.

Will you please check out this junior McElephant seal in all his short-whiskered, head-tilting, neck-rolled awesomeness:
That is some SUPER BLORP action, Mari F.
I like to get them waxed once every ‘Tocktober…

“…And then I went back to the market to return said sea cucumber because it didn’t really mesh with the seaweed salad I had planned for that night’s dinner. But wouldn’t you know it, the market was closed, which was unfortunate on obvious levels but also because I needed a sponge. Anyhoo, long story short, I got very little done, but then I met you, and well, now here we are. Nice to meet you, my name is Bob.”
Way to catch the most uninteresting creature in the sea, Brendan.
Yeah, we’ve all seen the movie. Jiminy Cricket, Blue Fairy, “I got no strings,” the whole schmear. Hey, even my grandkids like it — until they get to that scene.
Look, I’m a big animal, and sometimes I swallow things. You try watching where you’re going with a head the size of a submarine. So if you happen to find yourself in my belly, do me a favor: Don’t start a fire; just knock. I’ll let you out, promise.
Heeeeey, Brother Hermit Crab! Sorry I’ve been so absent; Auntie Squirrel was teaching me how to store nuts for winter.

Yes, it is I — the Seal of Approval, a benevolent spirit offering unconditional approval for every misstep, so your day doesn’t have to suck so much.
Say you overslept this morning? I approve. Burnt the French toast? J’approuve! Got the hiccups during the client presentation? Approve-o-rama!
Accidentally backed into a row of Harley-Davidsons, which toppled like dominoes onto a painter’s ladder, sending a can of Robin’s Egg Blue into a waiter’s tray at Saul Zapata’s Kosher Taqueria, which flung an entire order of sizzling gefilte-fajitas into a gentle arc over traffic and through the sunroof of a passing Mercedes?
