I rarely publish the feel-good emails that circulate amongst family members, but this one was a gem. Who doesn’t love cute baby chimps!?
A mother chimpanzee who lived in a Zoo died recently and one of the Zoo employees took her baby chimp home to care for it. It never crossed his mind that his dog, who had recently given birth would adopt the chimp and raise it with her pups. Judging by the look on her face at times, she is not quite sure why this particular offspring has hands to grab her with, but all the same, this strange little “pup” which has joined her litter has brought out in her – AND her real family – for all the world to see – a portrait of exactly what unconditional love is all about.
