We have had a few seals on our beach, the beach where they are born in November is just up the coast.
This little one was on the beach the other morning. Thankfully the girls are fine & don't bother them if they come across one, we pop them on the lead as we pass.
I do hope that other peoples dogs are as accommodating.
There was an incident that happened on the banks of the Thames in London where a dog mauled a seal that had become a favourite with the locals & sadly the seal died. I would have been heartbroken if my girls had done that.
Below is from the paper!!!
A barrister says she is "heartbroken" after her dog attacked a popular seal known as Freddie Mercury.
The seal, named after the late Queen singer, had won the hearts of residents frolicking on the River Thames near Hammersmith Bridge in west London.
But after the attack on Sunday, vets decided to put the young pup down as his injuries were so serious.
Freddie's wounds included a broken bone, dislocation of a flipper and damage to joints, ligaments and nerves.
An eyewitness described the attack, which he said lasted around two minutes, as "quite shocking".
Suddenly this dog runs along the foreshore and savagely attacks the seal. People were quite shocked and dismayed by what happened.
The dog just wasn't letting go and it had its teeth in. It was clamped on, which is the best way to describe it."
People get me so annoyed.
Thanks for the lovely comments, so appreciated. x

How cute! Dogs really should be kept on a leash especially when the owner knows there are other animals, such as baby seals, in the vicinity. Poor little Freddie :( I hope the dog's owner was at least fined.

What a little cutie 🥰
Very sad to hear about the baby seal that was tortured.
Too bad the barrister wasn’t fined.

really difficult to judge what a dog might do. I know my Bodie is a very friendly dog, but I tell any children that wants to pet him, do not pet any dog unless your parents approves

It's always disturbing when a dog does what a dog does. I think people forget they are animals with instincts. I was disappointed when I found a dead baby rabbit in the backyard. You just never think your dog could do that.
