A very happy 36th birthday to the one and only Burrito.
Everyone knows that birthdays should be extended for as long as possible, right?! Certainly the chimpanzees would agree with this:
Because Vicki’s birthday yesterday was a special one and she has many people in her life that care about her (count all of the primates at CSNW in that list!), we have a second Sponsor a Day celebrating her birthday yesterday.
This one is from Mary Fagerlee with this message, “We want to honor our sister-in-law Vicki Fagerlee on her birthday. She is an awesome addition to our family, and it’s perfect to add to Jim and Kim’s sponsorship of her day to her chimp family!”
So, happy continued birthday, Vicki!
The Poppoffs are a one of our favorite families, so we’re pretty happy to be a part of wishing Julie Poppoff a “Happy Birthday from Mom & Dad!” from Mike Poppoff and Gay Dorsey who sponsored this day of sanctuary in her honor.
We go way back with the Poppoffs. as you can see in this post from 2009. The Poppoffs and Poppoff, Inc. have been really great supporters over the years, including being a sponsor for galas many years running, including the HOOT! 2018 gala coming up in May!
But today is about Julie. The chimps hope you have some fun planned, July!
As the video illustrates, Burrito was in high spirits today as we celebrated his 35th birthday. He is the epitome of being young at heart. Just when you think you couldn’t love him any more he does something else to irrevocably endear himself, like eating lettuce with never-before-seen abandon or practically jumping right out of his skin with excitement.
Foxie wanted to send a big Happy Birthday to her pal Tracy, who sponsored today’s day of sanctuary!
Tracy, Foxie hopes that your day is full of (figurative) back-flips and pirouettes and lots of (actual) laughter and joy!
Burrito is so easy to shop for. All he ever wants for his birthday is food.
The other chimps were more than happy to help him celebrate.
Of course, it’s not a real party until someone gets upset. Even when there’s more than enough to go around, someone (ahem, Jamie) has to take more than their fair share.
Thankfully, Jody was mature enough to extend an olive branch to Jamie and move on. Jody should be awarded some kind of medal for what she puts up with.
Burrito managed to avoid the camera most of the day, but rest assured, he ate enough to last him until next January. Now, it’s time to sleep it off. Happy 34th, big guy.
