She's sweet-tempered and curious - and as gentle and graceful as a 1,500-pound, 14-foot-tall animal can possibly be. Her keepers at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore think she's beautiful. But when Gretchen the giraffe is in your face - all ears, horns, lips and drool, with her 18-inch tongue snaking out to grab a bunch of romaine - she's simply comical. There is nothing funny, however, about the challenge zoo veterinarians face each day keeping the geriatric giraffe as healthy and comfortable as possible as she nears the end of her life.

Gretchen, age 22, spent her last day of life at the Maryland Zoo in Baltimore atop the grassy hill where she had long endeared herself to thousands of families and children, grazing pleasantly with a herd of four other giraffes. Staff members came to see her throughout the day Friday, offering tearful goodbyes to a sweet, inquisitive animal many had come to call "The Lady of the House." Her long day outside was a rare one in recent weeks, zoo officials said, as her lifelong problems with arthritis gradually increased her suffering so much that they decided to end her life.

This episode needed a parental guidance warning. Alexis gets a new nose and it is already out of joint because Gretchen didn't visit her on the day of the operation. And lucky us - we get to see everything they pulled out of Alexis' old nose -- septum and all -- on camera. Seriously, I'm 30-sumpin' years old and even I needed a hand to hold! In less explicit TV, Tamra decides that she doesn't need big breasts to define who she is, she's got Eddie to do that!
