A dachshund dog (also most commonly known by it nicknames like Wiener dog or a Sausage dog) named Stanley was with his family on a vacation taken to Cornwall, England. His owner named Melanie Talbot decided that as they were away from their home, they should visit the Sea Life Trust Cornish Seal Sanctuary.
There the land pup Stanley became friends with the Sea Pup named Aayla, who was living at the Cornish Seal Sanctuary.
After entering the Sanctuary, Stanley’s eyes instantly caught glimpse of a seal named Aayla. Aayla, seeing Staley, also became very excited as they saw each other through the glass partition.
Aayla started diving and swimming around the window while looking at the cute and adorable looking Staley. They spent nearly 20 minutes seeing each other and posed for photos.
A worker of the Sea Life Trust Cornish Seal Sanctuary named Georgina Shannon said, “Aayla can often be seen through underwater viewing and she loves to interact with humans and dogs. We are often sent many photos where Aayla interacts with their dogs. So, yes, this was not the first time, she made friends with a dog but this time she really seemed to be in love with Stanley.”
It seems Aayla mistook Stanley as another seal because he was wearing his doggy jacket with his ears tucked in due to cold. Shannon said, “Aayla waved at him and seemed to be fascinated by him. It is clear that she was interested in Stanley.”
Photos of Aayla and Stanley posing as if they have been friends for a very long time have gone viral over social media.
Shannon said, “Aayla is a rescued seal from the area of Bacton, Norfolk. She was rescued back in 2017 and at the time she had an injury on her right flipper as well as was really malnourished. Her flipper was severely infected and several of her bones had to be removed. She was welcomed in the Seal Sanctuary back in July of 2018.”
The Sea Life Trust Cornish Seal Sanctuary is located in Gweek, Cornwall and it is a charity that not only rescues but also provides whatever necessary care to the distressed seals and other marine rescued animals.
It is not needed to say but these 2 friends look really cute with each other.
These are some of the photos released by the Sea Life Trust Cornish Seal Sanctuary of the energetic and playful seal named Aayla.
