I don’t want to sound bitter but, well, this birthday was a big letdown. I mean, last year I had a major party in the park. Tons of people visited me. I had a blueberry cake and lots of yogurt. This year my owner didn’t even bother to stay home and celebrate with me.
Oh, I know, she had to go off on some super vacation to French Polynesia and see a total eclipse of the sun.
But I don’t get why they couldn’t reschedule the solar eclipse so that it didn’t conflict with my birthday! If my owner loved me, I’m sure she would have done that.
Anyway, I did get a whole lot of birthday wishes on Facebook and I was very happy about that! My FB friends did not forget me.
And my little brother Dobby, who is the best little brother a capybara could ever have, sent me a totally cute book about a capybara named Kapibara-kun. It’s written in Japanese but you don’t really need the words to understand the pictures. Dobby also sent me some of his favorite grass. Too bad my lame owner didn’t open it until she got home from vacation and the grass was all spoiled by then.
Rick even got me a gift of a stuffed capybara toy! It looks just like Carpincho who came to visit me last year. I haven’t named my new toy yet so if anyone would like to suggest a name, I’d like to hear it!
Now you might think my owner would have brought me back something really special from French Polynesia but you’d be wrong. She didn’t bring me a darned thing. And then she tried to pass off this cute little teddy bear that she got for free from stuffedanimals.com as an actual present for me. That teddy bear is sample of what the plush version of me might look like. It’s not going to be realistic like the toy Rick gave me but it’s not going to be fluffy like the teddy bear either. At any rate, I love my new teddy bear and he is really super soft and bite-able. He is looking for a name too. Any ideas?
P.S. I am still open to receiving more presents, cards and birthday wishes, in case you were wondering.
