Guess Who Got Birthday Kisses?!?!

Last week it was my birthday! And, like last year, I spent some of my birth week with marine mammals – this time a lovely sea lion who is sadly blind in one eye and not really a suitable candidate for life in the wild. However, she is a suitable candidate for getting lots of fish for doing things like giving high fives, rolling over, swimming with people and practicing laying veeeeeerrrrry still on her tummy so that she can more easily get blood draws when her vet needs to do so. We went swimming with her in spite of the cold weather in Florida (we had to wear not one but TWO wet suits as the water was in the 50s) and at the end of it, I got a birthday kiss.

I hope everyone had a great week. Now back to our regularly scheduled posts about sex!
