Today was sponsored for Burrito Chimpanzee in honor of his 31st birthday, by his Pal, Tracy Headley! There is probably not a day that goes by that Burrito doesn’t melt one of our hearts. Whether he’s biting on something while he plays (a toy, a fire hose, the caging, his own foot…), having a raucous game of chase or tug o’ war ending with him shyly gazing at you as he offers you a kiss or presents his belly for a knuckle rub, laughing uncontrollably when you blow in his ear, food squeaking with utter joy and abandon over his favorite (or any!) food, hugging his good friend, Foxie, becoming more courageous each day as he patrols Young’s Hill with Jamie, or just sitting there being his handsome self, his endearing qualities are countless.
As the youngest member of the Cle Elum 7, and the only male, Burrito doesn’t always have it so easy. This usually comes as the result of getting himself into trouble with the ladies due to his confusion around appropriate chimpanzee social skills. Having been born in a lab and denied the nurturing care of his mother or the role modeling of an adult male chimpanzee, it makes sense. But one thing is certain above anything else. Burrito is dearly loved by his family and friends, chimpanzee and human alike.
Party preparations are underway and as no party for Mr. B would be complete without plenty of food, you can bet he is going to be happy so check back later today to see the celebration! And while you are waiting, you can learn more about Burrito here.
Thank you so much for sponsoring today for this special guy, Tracy!! Happy Birthday, Burrito, we love you!!!
