I always wanted a seal. They're so cute!
The only place I could put it would be my bathtub. It's a good thing I have 2!
I would start the day by drawing it a fresh bath, making it clap or play a musical instrument for its meals and perhaps have it learn to answer the door.
Also, my seal would never smell bad. It would have fantastic manners. And it would get along just fine with my cat and dog.
