Jamie takes life pretty seriously. She likes to work on her projects, eat meals, take walks, and interact very intensely. Her focus can certainly be intimidating but it’s one of the traits I really admire, probably because it resonates. Today we set up a cabbage forage in the playroom after morning cleaning. In the series of photos that I snapped of Jamie enjoying the cabbage you can see how intently she was savoring each bite. What is even more unusual about this series is that Jamie was so absorbed with her snack that I was able to get in a number of shots before her focus turned to the camera!

Today’s day of sanctuary was sponsored by Sherry Munion in honor of her daughter-in-law, Peggy Faranda’s, birthday! Sherry learned of Chimpanzee Sanctuary NW through Peggy and wanted to gift her with this day. She also shared this lovely message:
“Peggy’s dedication to all animals and her photography of such is a true gift. She is a wonderful woman and I am thrilled to have her as a daughter-in-law.”
Sherry and Peggy, thank you so much for your support and for giving the chimpanzees a special day to share with you. What a compassionate and generous gift! Peggy, from all of us here at CSNW, we wish you the happiest of birthdays!
Negra has been the birthday party queen all weekend so we hope you take some cues from her on how to celebrate!
