A better question is what’s not for dinner.
I am a hungry capybara, no question about it. Well, it’s just that I’m growing so fast I need to eat a whole lot. These past few weeks that I’ve been living at my new home with Melly and Rick, I have been putting over two pounds per week. It’s hard work growing that fast! In fact, it’s so hard that it’s just unreasonable to expect me to stand or sit up while eating. I’ve got to get maximum use out of those calories.
In the above photo, you can see my current favorite food, corn-on-the-cob. It is delicious. Sometimes I even eat the cob but usually there will be a little bit of cob core left.
Above is what I call my “first dinner.” That’s the dinner I get when Melly goes to bed at night. It is a whole head of lettuce (or kale or spinach or some other leafy vegetable) with a sprinkling of broccoli, a half a cantaloupe (or equivalent in watermelon), two cups of GPF (Guinea Pig Food) and a couple of pieces of corn.
I get the same thing or something like it for “second dinner” at around 3:00 am.
Sometimes Melly sneaks in apples or rutabaga or weird little potatoes. Sometimes they give me a bowl of cereal, something like Total with raisins. Sometimes I get a funny melon in stead of cantaloupe or watermelon. Sometimes Melly picks me a bowl of grass. I like a little variety.
I’m not like Caplin was, I don’t eat or like yogurt or popsicles. I do like yogurt covered raisins though and that could be the first step along a slippery slope. It’s a chance I’ll just have to take.
By the way, that is the new harness Melly got me for my birthday. I outgrew my old one. But look, it is pink! I mean, yeah, obviously I look good in pink and it does come with a matching leash, but what will people say?
