Missy spends most of her time with her chimp friends – in other words, she’s a chimp’s chimp. She is that cool girl that everyone wants to be friends with. She is confident, a friend to all, and she is not afraid to try new things (most of the time). So you could see why it would be a big deal if Missy wanted to play, you would drop everything! I find myself occasionally grooming, tickling, and playing chase with Missy usually after lunch when everyone is napping. As we play you all have to remember Missy is a loyal friend. She helps Jamie keep order in the chimp house, even if it’s not in her best interest. Our games usually end once Jamie notices or the chimps start waking up. Recently, Missy has been popping up randomly to groom or sit together, not at our normal meet up time. Like, this morning we groomed in the Greenhouse and Missy offered a kiss, a KISS! A moment I will cherish forever.

Today was sponsored by Shauna and Jake Holliday for their beloved dog, Taylor:
“In loving memory of our English Bulldog Taylor who we recently lost. She would have been 10 on this day. We showered this tender hearted girl with love and care for her entire life and we would like to share with the chimpanzees on her special day.”
Shauna and Jake, thank you so much for allowing the chimpanzees to share in such a special day for you. We are so very sorry for the loss of your beloved friend and family member. We are sending all the good thoughts to you today, hoping that Taylor’s legacy brings you comfort and joy, as you all have helped bring the chimpanzees.
