A few weeks ago, my friend Jean E. had some very exciting news for me! The Dallas Zoo has had a baby giraffe born just a few weeks ago. She's a baby girl giraffe, which is great because if she had been a boy the zoo would not have been able to keep her!
The zoo is having a naming contest right now for this precious baby giraffe.
And so we naturally had a thought....
Wouldn't it be neat if the Baby giraffe was unofficially named after Jamesie?!
The zoo is collecting entries until August 21st for names.
And so we are proposing that everyone send it the name "JAMIE THE GIRAFFE" for this new baby giraffe!
I can't tell you how excited I would be if they named this giraffe after James.
Can't you see how much he loved feeding the giraffe?! :)
I seriously want to cry just thinking about it! So would you all please download this form, and send it back to the Dallas zoo? You don't have to live in Dallas (0r the United States!) to enter.
The pictures above were taken the two times we were able to take Jamesie to the zoo to see the giraffes. He was only 6 months old and almost 7 months old in the pictures. How great would it be if the Zoo was able to name the new baby Jamie?! The baby was born just a few days after we buried James.
And if you are interested in helping me with this endeavor, would you mind sending it to all of your friends?! The more people on board, the greater the chance that the Zoo will pick Jamie as the name!
Thank you all so much for your help. I'll probably keep posting this, so I am so sorry if it gets repetitive!
