    Smile Giraffe kisses cancer-stricken zookeeper who had cared for them for years

    http://www.sundayworld.com/top-stories/daily-world/giraffe-kisses-cancer-stricken-zookeeper-who-cared-for-him-for-years

    Beautiful story…my eyes literally just welled up when looking at these photos. Animals understand things a whole lot better than we as humans often give them credit for.

    Just beautiful! The man was also disabled (special place in my heart as I have a son with Down syndrome) and had cleaned their cages for 25 years. This is what is good in the world!

    For some reason, the link does not work for me -- but here is a related one that did:

    Very touching! I just sent this to my daughter, who has had a soft spot for giraffes, I think, since one at Silver Springs, FL took a liking to her on a visit a few years back. It kept wanting to snuffle and "kiss" her red hair.

    How cool for your daughter to be able to say a giraffe has snuffled (love that word) her hair!
