Nothing But Photos

Me and Melly

Don’t Melly and I look cute together? Don’t you think it looks like she loves me? Well she doesn’t. Instead of staying home and taking care of me, she is going to Brasil! I’m pretty sure that while she is there she will be ogling other capybaras and comparing them to me, potentially unfavorably. She has already proved her inconstancy by  failing to help me write my blog posts lately. She has been “too busy studying Portuguese.” That is the language that the Brazilian capybaras speak so you can see where this is going. Continue reading “Nothing But Photos” »

My Big Boy Fur

Baby fur

This is me on the day I came to live with Melly and my Rick. I wasn’t even 10 months old yet. I sure had a big head! And I was scared of everything. But the point of this blog post is my fur. See how nice and red it is? And how short? It is a little longer on my body than on my head, but not by a whole lot. That is baby capybara fur. Continue reading “My Big Boy Fur” »
