This winter we are very lucky to have an indoor facility that we are able to rent on Saturday afternoons for IPO training. It is big enough for protection and has a good flooring surface. Our trainer, Mario, was away for the month of January but a group of us met up to do obedience with our dogs. Another “helper”, Scott, worked the dogs in protection with us. It’s great to be able to train but we are looking forward to the weather warming up and getting back outdoors.

On January 27th I received a call about a seal on a Brewster Beach. I, along with a volunteer from the IFAW/Cape Cod Stranding Network, assessed the situation. The seal appeared to be in good health and was just enjoying the sun. Seals that are seen on land are not necessarily stranded or in need of help. Seals are semi-aquatic, which means they spend part of their lives on land and part in the water. Seals haul out on land to rest, to get warm and dry, to soak up some sun, to molt, and to give birth.
Yesterday another seal was “sunbathing” on Breakwater Beach in Brewster.

Dylan and Aiden want to know when all this snow will be gone…??
