Melly and Coral are FINALLY back from Brazil! I know I should be happy, but I was a little mad too. How could they go off and leave me just to see wild capybaras? Am I not better than any wild capy? Do they not love me more? And the whole time they were gone, no one went swimming with me! Sure, my Rick kept me company in the pool but not for very long and he only leans over the side, he never comes in the water.
Okay, I can be won over by pool treats. I had almost forgotten that Melly always feeds me a whole head of some leafy vegetable when she gets in the pool with me. That is hard to resist. This time it was romaine lettuce, one of my favorites.
Lettuce is supposed to go in my MOUTH not on my HEAD! I had forgotten that Melly has a warped sense of humor. Why does she do these things to me? With one hand, a nice crunchy leaf goes into my mouth, with the other she plops a leaf down on my ears like a sombrero. I don’t think they even wear sombreros in Brazil.
And what is this supposed to be? A sideways sombrero? A French beret? A banana leaf? I missed Melly but I did not miss this.
A capybara’s got to have a little respect, doesn’t he? At least in his own pool? I refused to pose for any more photos with lettuce on my head.
At any rate, I ate all of the lettuce so it was time to make peace with Melly.
Melly also helps me practice my spins and rolls in the pool. Those are my two front paws sticking out of the water. You can just see my chin between them.
Don’t we look cute together? Melly says it is hard to take a “selfie” with a capybara in a pool.
Coral came over too. She didn’t get in the pool with me but she did feed me another big loaf of lettuce.
I can almost forgive Melly and Coral for going off to Brazil except for one thing, they both say they want to go back! NO! NO! NO! They cannot go back because I do not want to go and they are not allowed to leave me ever again! Who needs wild capys when you have me right here! It makes no sense at all!
