It has been a truly magical experience to have rescued this newborn from drowning [off Issaquah Dock] and then be able to teach him how to eat and to be able to thrive in his natural habitat these past few weeks. I got so much pleasure just weighing him each week and celebrating every pound that he put on. But the biggest celebration came when he went home. I was a bit sad to think that I will probably never see him again, but so grateful that he is back where he belongs.
