I’m starting this post with a cute photo of Prince Dobalob, aka Dobby(e) Winnick. Isn’t he adorable? Well, get over it because the whole rest of this post is not going to be about Dobby at all, it’s going to be about my journey to get to him. The journey starts in Buda, TX, detours through Los Angeles, and ends in Seattle with the famous capybara. This installment is about the LA section of the trip. I’d like to promise that it will be interesting, even though it is not about capybaras, but you will have to judge that for yourselves. Continue reading “Dobby(e) Trip: Part 1” »

He changed other people’s lives too, teaching people around the world about the intelligent and affectionate nature of capybaras. When I lost him on January 4th, 2011, I lost a huge part of myself.

Caplin Rous could really rock the ears
It is only five days until Caplin Day 2013 so there is no better time to revel in the cuteness that was Caplin Rous. Of course Caplin was cute all the time, but he was especially cute when he was wearing a costume. That is why we are celebrating Caplin Day with a Costume Contest this year. I hope these photos of Caplin dressed as an Easter Bunny will inspire more people to enter the contest and will help to keep Caplin Rous, the World’s Most Famous Capybara, alive in our hearts and minds.
