Lonely Pup~

A harbor seal pup comes in from a swim,

and searches the beach for his mother,

but she is out fishing,

and he is alone.

Dejected and tired,

he rolls in the sand, naps and waits.

Cheers to you from the lonely seal pup~

  1. So poignant to capture this bond between pup and mother. I feel really touched by this … and perhaps because my own mother was not always available to me. As mother’s day approaches May your feel love for the generation before and the generation ahead.
    Sending love to you and all mothers 💕💛🙏

  2. Awww…..how cute is that pup.
    Great photos. Hope the pup and mother were reunited quickly after the pup’s photoshoot 🙂

  3. Oh, Cindy, he is adorable. When I was young, there were still many a seal at Newport Beach and they would swim up to us on our surfboards, what t treat. Years later, it was the otters at Monterey Bay that stole my heart… Thank you for sharing these and I do hope the little fellow is okay.

  4. Bless … wonderful photos of the lone seal pup and a touching ‘story’ of its search for the mother. Reminds me of a children’s book I read as young when a lost duckling … hope the seal found its mother!

  5. He’s a cutie, and great shots dear lady. We haven’t had any seals for many years until recently, the odd one will crawl up onto the rocks for a snooze to the delight of the locals (and me) 😀 ❤️ 🙏🏽 🦋 😂 🤣

  6. This makes me sad 🙁 I would love a happy ending… I can never watch shows where animals are hurt or eaten such as the Discovery Channel – it’s too much for me!
    Happy Mother’s Day to you and for being a grandma to those two cute little boys.

  7. Poor sweet thing. He is very beautiful.
    At least it’s getting to live a natural life, however hard it is.
    Canada still allows the clubbing of Harp Seal pups. This is despite outcries worldwide, and a falling seal products market.
    It’s absolutely gross!!!! I’m ashamed!!!

    • I am so sorry. I wish you were PM. Who buys the coats of Harp Seal pups? Don’t answer, I’m already figuring it out, and I am sick to death of these markets. Imagine this as a seasonal job, clubbing defenseless harp seal cubs to death.

    • Well, no wonder we understand each other. I grew up with seals, and lots of the seafaring lads I grew up with, hate them. I love the seals, the lads? Not as much 😉 😉

  8. He is so cute! Especially as he naps and waits for Mom! Moms are sooo important! Happy Mother’s Day to you, Cindy!
