Troll-doll loving Foxie makes me laugh everyday. Despite her horrible past (born in a lab, used for hepatitis research, babies taken away from her), Foxie loves to play at Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest (ChimpsNW.org). Once she's decided you're a friend (it takes her a little while to warm up to new people), Foxie will be one of the most fun friends you'll ever have. I think she genuinely enjoys making others happy. She is seriously obsessed with troll dolls and has one (or five) with her at all times. I love to watch her play long games of troll-keep-away with Jamie.
