Doctor Apes to the Rescue

So,Lily has abusive relationships with all of her in point, Raff-e, her giraffe. Many a time, I've had to sew up gashes in Monkey or Piggy. Raff-e has even had a couple of surgeries, but this weekend Lily took her Chris Brown actin' self to a new level. Raff-e's leg was hangin' on by a mere thread and I tried desperately to save the leg as Lily looked on in anticipation. 2 minutes of stitching later and I had to make the call...the leg would have to go. The emergency amputation was a sucess...Raff-e is now the new and improved, 3-legged giraffe and from the looks of it, Lily has no intention of keeping any of his other limbs intact!

The happy patient...till he's attacked again!

Happy Lily...up to her abusive behavior again...I guess Raff-e deserves it for his relentless squeaking:)

That poor Raff-e. He needs to watch this video and then he'll know how to defend himself!

I do remember the "Luggets"! In fact, you inspired me to change the name of the blog to "Lubbock Love Nuggets". How ironic that you and Chaumont, lovers of Lubbock that you are, both moved away!
