Caplin Day 2014

In our last installment, Meeting Romeo and Tuff’n, I introduced the two capybara brothers, Romeo and Tuff’n, and their owners, Marvin and Elizabeth. As you may recall, I was in Las Vegas for the 2014 BlogPaws convention. It was a great chance to meet these two very personable capybaras and their proud owners.

2014 Capybara Madness Calendar: What is it?

Okay Capy fans! It is time to think about next year’s Capybara Madness Calendar!

The first thing we have to answer is who should be in it?

The first part of that question is obvious. Let’s look at it month-by-month:

  • Cover – ?
  • January – ?
  • February – Dobbye Winnick (it’s his birthday)
  • March – Garibaldi Rous (it’s my birthday)
  • April – ?
  • May – ?
  • June – ?
  • July – Caplin Rous (it’s his birthday)
  • August – ?
  • September – ?
  • October – ?
  • November – ?
  • December – ?

So three months are already covered. The question is what to do with the others. Should they all be me or should be split them between me and wild capybaras in Brazil, or should they all be wild capybaras? Or do some of you even think the whole calendar should be wild capybaras?


Please use the pool on the right sidebar to let me know what you think!
In the choices “Gari” stands for what you see above, Gari + Dobbye + Caplin.

Oh, and you can also use comments, but the poll is very important so don’t comment and not vote on the poll.

Thanks for your help!
