This is what Berthe Jager says about the encounter her dog, Kiran, had with a young seal on the beach in Scheveningen, the Netherlands:
We walk the beach at least once a week, we live close. My dog loves to swim and we saw this seal close to the shore. We were wondering if it would be sick but on the contrary, it was young and very keen on meeting my dog. There were more dogs but most of them were afraid or aggressive so they were on a leash. Kiran (my dog) was also curious and the two of them had a magical connection😍. They played for at least 30 minutes and in the end I had to put my dog on the leash because she did not want to continue walking😄 When on the leash we continued walking and the seal came out of the water as if he was saying ‘hey friend where are you going..?’ Then another dog scared him so he went back in the water. He did swim along the shore with us until we left the beach. Truly the most magical thing ever!
