#158: Why I Love My Job

I get to be up close with JD's cute face everyday. JD was hauled out (on land) for most of the morning. When our training session started on the opposite side of the exhibit, she slowly, and I mean slowly, entered the shallow water and proceeded to do the seal version of a dog paddle on her way over. She kept her head above water the whole time and jumped on deck with her fur straight up. She still looks sleepy here while we compare noses.
