Interesting reading!

A Skipper’s Post:

Dearest Dobby,

I hope you know how much I love you. You are my idol in so very many ways. Your wisdom has been a guiding light in my life, along, of course, with the many posts from my predecessors, Caplin and Garibaldi. And of course, you are the best looking male capybara in the world!

As you know from my previous post, I have recently read your autobiography, which was truly gripping! But on reflection, I have some questions about it. There are some things that bother me.

Baby, it’s cold outside

My first question, my dear friend, is why do you allow The Farm Manager to exile you from inside the house? This seems a terrible injustice! As you can see from the photo above, I have full indoor privileges. Maybe your outdoor environment is better than mine? Or maybe it is because we do not have any leather furniture. I have made some progress even on fabric upholstery though. Not that I’m encouraging that. I’m just saying that fabric doesn’t get the credit it deserves. 

Me “in” the snow

My second and most serious question relates to cold. You can see how I handle snow in the photo above (or read my Oh, no! Snow! post). 

Dobby in the snow

On the other hand, above is a photo of you in the snow. Oh my lord! Are your paws actually embedded in that snow? I love you, Dobby, but I do not understand this. To be honest, I am somewhat concerned about your mental health. Luckily, I saw on Facebook this morning that you came into the kitchen to sleep last night.

I know you have a heater in your bed at night, and that is good. Do you know that MelT and I have a heater in our bed also? And our bed is in the — relatively — warm house. I also snuggle up to MelT to steal some of her radiated heat. Does The Farm Manager or The Bartender sleep with you on cold nights? I suppose you don’t need that when you are in the kitchen, but surely when you are outside they must share their warmth with you!

I suppose part of your appeal is your rugged handsomeness. I imagine that doesn’t come easily. But, please, my love, be very, very careful!

Most faithfully yours, your ardent admirer,

Mudskipper (Skipper) Rous
