If you’ve been following my blog, you know I’ve been having some problems with my teeth, cute as they are. In this post I’m going to give you an update on them AND I’m going to tell you about something really incredible that happened in my creek!
How bad can my teeth be if I can still eat corn? And believe me, I can! If anything I am eating more corn now than ever. But Melly is taking my dental problem very seriously. I have to take medicine every single day. Unlike every other time Melly has tried to give me medicine, I actually like this stuff! The medicine is Marbofloxacin (Susp) 10mg/ml: 2.2 ml 1x daily. I get that dose because I weighed 53.9 kg. That’s about 119 lbs, which is a lot.
Taking my Medicine
But enough of that! Let’s move on to something more fun.
Look! That is me coming out of Capybara Creek! I know I’ve posted about the mud in the creek quite a few times, but look what happened to it! It turned into muddy water! Muddy water that is deep enough for me to swim in and has lots of nooks and crannies for me to explore. Plus a bunch of dead plants that grew in there when it only had mud. This is the best thing ever!
The creek is not as deep as my pool but it is longer and, in some ways, more fun. Only Melly says she will not come in with me. Ever. No matter how hot the day is. Sometimes I just don’t get her.
I would stay in the creek all day if I could, which is why Melly says I have to wear my harness and leash. Apparently she doesn’t want me to have any fun.
Even when I am in the creek I need to remind other potential capybaras that this leash is mine. I also try to mark as many plants as I can. This is working because no other capybaras have tried to take over my property yet.
In my pool I can hide in my inner tube but that is not so effective as hiding in these plants. I heard Melly asking where I was a lot of times. Sneaky ‘bara, that’s me.
Swimming in Capybara Creek
I hope to have a lot more posts about the creek since I am assuming Melly will keep it filled for me from now on. She claims the rain has to fill it, but I know how the hose works!
