#17: Smoke's 37th Birthday

The paparazzi was in full force at the harbor seal exhibit the other day when we celebrated Smoke's 37th birthday. Smoke is one of the oldest harbor seals in the country. Atlantic harbor seals typically live into their mid twenties, so 37 is quite a feat!

Smokey is not one for chocolate, so instead we made her a big fish "cake" with herring, capelin and some monster-sized squid. We put candles in the cake and Lana, Smoke's long-time buddy, helped blow them out.

Smoke did really well with all of the photographers and camera men surrounding her. With all of the cameras clicking away, you would've thought you were on a red carpet somewhere! Smoke certainly deserves all the attention.
