For as long as I can remember, the Giraffe has been the object of my affection and admiration.

There is something so regal, so fragile, so graceful, so endearing about them, how could you not love them.

In my lifetime, I have, with little shame,  amassed a collection of  Giraffes in every form,  all manner of clothing, toys for my children and my dogs of course, stationary, Christmas cards, birthday cakes, Giraffes made of  paper,  wood, copper, bisque, brass, you name it,  if it is a Giraffe anything,  I have it.

      • Ellen. Things like that always upset me. But it is needful to know them. I could share horror stories about my experiences in animal health. I just don’t cause it is so harsh to share things I do know. Don’t worry my dear. It didn’t cripple me. It just makes my heart ache and my prayers for the world to increase.
        Love you
