"Hmmm...You think? I just have so much going on, and it's going to be cold, windy; I'm not so sure."
I mulled it over for a bit and finally decided to take the plunge and plan to see Puddy paddle back to the sea the next day. This was a rare opportunity, and I wanted to seize it before it passed.

He was slow going at first, not quite sure that he wanted to go back into the wild sea where his last experience was that of near-death.
But I'd like to think that as Puddy considered his options on his way back into the frigid January waters, he realized that he had already faced probably the worst a seal could face, and he came out the other side. I surmise that little Puddy realized that kindness is all around him; and as these strangers cheered him on and chanted his name, he knew everything would be okay.
Look, I know he's just a seal, but a girl can dream, right?

And as always, to God be the glory.
