It is only five days until Caplin Day 2013 so there is no better time to revel in the cuteness that was Caplin Rous. Of course Caplin was cute all the time, but he was especially cute when he was wearing a costume. That is why we are celebrating Caplin Day with a Costume Contest this year. I hope these photos of Caplin dressed as an Easter Bunny will inspire more people to enter the contest and will help to keep Caplin Rous, the World’s Most Famous Capybara, alive in our hearts and minds.
Melly cannot teach me to go up on that thing much less come down the slide. I suppose this is one of the many things that made Caplin Rous so special.
I won’t wear those ears either, let alone let a tiny plush rabbit sit on my head long enough for a photo. That’s just crazy.
Dignified, yet cute. I honestly don’t know how he did it. He’s got rabbit ears and a tiny rabbit on his head, but he still looks noble.
That nose is too cute to even pretend to be a rabbit. Not that rabbits aren’t cute, they’re just not capybara cute.
Remember, we celebrate Caplin Day on July 10th by eating popsicles and/or yogurt and/or yogurt popsicles, in memory of Caplin Rous. Those were his very favorite foods. In the photo above, he is eating his favorite flavor, blueberry.
