    Awesome memes.

    She'd better have it today or tomorrow. I'm going on a trip starting on Wednesday, and will be out of internet reach on Saturday and Sunday. I don't want to have invested all this time and then MISS IT.

    Dobby was born a week ago at the Denver Zoo. So, if you need to see a baby giraffe, check him out.

    Re: For animal lovers

    AZ , Oh no! There are people on the April feed who are in the same boat as you-They are going away and are expressing stress that they'll miss the birth. After watching her for two weeks.


    Awww, I love it when April and Oliver get some one on one time with Corey and Alyssa.
    Yes, I know the name of Aprils keepers lol There's also a rodent that scurries in and out at night. Everyone decided to name him Templeton. After the rodent in Charlottes Web. He's her night nurse lol
    The last 16 months have been hard. I need this distraction.

    I even keep my Kindle Fire next to my bed. When I get up to go potty, I check on her. I love it when Corey and Alyssa wave at the camera as they leave her stall. Did you see Corey taking pictures of her underneath tonight? Probably going to send them to the vet to update the state of her teats (a telltale sign of impending labor). And he gave someone in the hallway a "thumbs up" after he looked.

    Sigh. I need to get a life. And I will. Right after the baby is born!!!!

    Did you see the update this Morning? April is still pregnant. I'm beginning to think it's really a bad case of gas lol Poor thing, though. She sat down last night. She had to lean on her bended front legs, while trying to get her belly and back legs properly sorted.
    They are going to keep a video of the birth so anyone who misses it can log on and see it. I was going to say I called the Animal park on your behalf , but it doesn't sound plausible.

    I know deployed units are watching, children's hospitals, retirement homes, schools, police stations and mental health centers. I think we all have a life, maybe that's the problem. Watching April , waiting for this new, innocent life to enter the world is a way to feel hope Unity and serenity. Millions of people from all over the world have this one thing in common. IT's beautiful.

    Oh gosh, yes, teat watch 2017! April really loves her caretakers and vice versa. They give her stomach kisses and rub her. She almost kicked the vet yesterday. "Get your cold hands off my stomach!!! Don't you know I'm a lady with a 150 lb. baby inside me???"

    Thank you for the link. He's adorable. I know he was a bit sick, but he's bounced back. Yeah!

    I took pictures of my kitties today after brushing their teeth and giving them a bath. They're so fluffy now and smell so good!
