Contest: My Inner Capybara


Entry #1: Bruser the Capy -(Danielle)

This is my birthday contest! I am going to be two on Sunday, March 11th and the contest is open for entries until then. To enter this contest you have to submit a photo or drawing showing you or your pet channeling your inner capybara. Examples are rolling (esp. in mud), swimming underwater, wearing a cape (like Super Capy) or a bandanna (like Caplin Rous). You can include a brief (less than 50 word) description of why the image projects your inner capybara.

I hope to see lots and lots of entries since this is going to be a fun one. It’s also a way to celebrate my birthday. I will imagine myself with all your inner capybaras and be very happy…unless no one enters and then I will be sad and lonely.

Voting will take place the following week, from Monday 3/12/12 to Sunday 3/18/12.

Prizes to be announced later, but I am sure they will be good.

Also, in celebration of my birthday, Super Capy and all of my puzzles are discounted for this week only. My calendar has also dropped to only $5 plus shipping. So check out my online store. All sales benefit the ROUS Foundation for Capybara Veterinary Care.

Liz’s comment:

Gari, You are my Inner Capybara.  You are always in my thoughts and dreams.  You are my desktop image when I switch on my laptop, my profile picture on FB and Youtube.  I have 5 hours of Full HD videos of you which I watch on my 1080p screen;  that means you are as close to me as is possible.


Entry #6 : Gatsby (Candice)

This is my dog Gatsby acting like a capybara lounging on the grass after stretching and rolling.  I rescued him, he had been born in a puppy mill and thrown out on the street because he had a little deformed leg.  He doesn’t even miss it now though, and he has a great life.

Entry #10: Bandanna Party! (Laurel)

Our Inner Capybara Bandanna Party!
The Chiweenies are related. Sophie is a boxer/retriever mix but Chiweenie at heart. Today we are all capybaras. We love the sun. Rolling in the dirt. The feel of grass under our fur. Cute lips. Love our humans. Life is good!
In the photo ~ Moose, Pumpkin, Sophie, Lila, Schnitzel.


Entry #11: BossyBoots Lamb Learning to Roll (MischievousCapybara)

I am Her pet lamb;  I used to be the Light of HER Life….in a time before Capybaras.  Here I am channelling  ‘My Inner Capybara’ by learning to roll.   Super and Coppy are helping me.   They said rolling in mud would be easier…. I said  “NoOOOO!”


Entry #12: Capycoppy, Reba Pig and Lil'BunE Foo Foo (Nina)

It took a bit of doing, and about 25 photos!  But I did it!  Here are Lil’BunE Foo Foo, Reba McEnPiggy and Capy Copy hanging out in the clouds.  As you can see, Lil’BunE is about the size of CapyCopy, his best buddy.  BunE is a Netherland Dwarf, and Miss Reba looks like a mini me of Garibaldi!!  In fact, my grand daughter saw a photo of Garibaldi on the calendar and wanted to know why Reba was in the bath!
(The above comment applies to the following 2 entries also)

    Fizz is a darling. He reminds us that all animals are special and should be loved.

    Melanie, the same thing is happening (as last time), the place to vote is barely visible….I shall send you a snippet of it.

  • MIlena

    I was trying to vote and it won’t let me. Two are in bold, like it thinks I have already voted, but I have not.

  • francine

    I was going to take a picture of myself napping, but I couldn’t figure out how!

  • Jennah

    Although my Cappycopy sat by the keyboard for inspiration, he still didn’t make it any easier for me to choose among these absolutely delightful entrants! What a wonderful contest! What a wonderful Gari!

  • Mary Carter

    I must say, though it was tough competition, #11, My Beloved Friend, BossyBoots Lamb, was my #1, with #8, Fizz, a very close #2 …..

    (Did I use too many comma’s ?)
