Wednesday Cute: Squee-Inducing Seal Pup Slips and Slides on Surfboard

This week in Wednesday Cute: slippery seal babies!!

Here is a seal pup trying to wriggle its chubby little body up onto a surfboard! It’s almost four minutes of baby animal goodness. (via)

A highlight begins at 0:37 (did someone grease the board?!), and it only gets better when the little guy gets its face all up in our business (1:28, 2:16, 3:24!!). We’d say we wish the poor pup’s buddies would be more helpful, but then we wouldn’t get to watch him slither and wiggle all over the place.

And hey, if you’re feeling down or frustrated, just take your inspiration from this resilient fellow: He didn’t give up in the face of adversity, even when it looked like the whole world (or at least the surfboard) was conspiring against him. Go get ’em, champ!

    This melted even my cold, dark heart.
