Contest: Caplin Day 2013

Caplin Rous’  birthday is coming up on July 10th. He would have been six this year. Melly still misses him every single day and I still struggle to live up to his legacy. One of the things Caplin was great at that I am not so good at was wearing costumes. See that photo above? Melly made him up as a horse for the PetCo Halloween costume contest in 2008. He made a pretty cute horse.

Capybara Aggression

This blog post is going to cover the dark side of pet capybaras. You knew that all that cuteness had to be balanced with a touch of danger, didn’t you?

The photo of me above doesn’t have anything to do with anything. I’m just using it because I start every post with a photo.

The thing I wanted to tell my readers today is that PetPR put out a press release about me! Okay, it’s not about me, it’s mostly about Melly. But it is short enough so that almost anyone could stand to read it. Click on over and leave a comment!

Caplin Day 2012

Owner’s blog:

I debated about what to post today. It’s a hard day for me, a day when I miss Caplin Rous more than ever. This would have been a big birthday for him. Five big years old. We would have had a party in a park like we did for his second birthday. All his fans would have been wishing him another happy year. By now he would have eclipsed Capyboppy, his only contender for the World’s Most Famous Capybara title. Instead I try to promote Caplin Day, aka Capybara Awareness Day, to keep his memory from dying.

Anyway, I decided to do something simple, to just post two photos. The one above was taken in November 2010 and shows Caplin Rous eating a popsicle, the signature food of a Caplin Day celebration.

Garibaldi Rous eating a popsicle

This is the only other photo I’m posting. In celebration of Caplin Day, Garibaldi Rous ate his first popsicle.

Don’t forget that if you’d like to buy a Caplin Rous Commemorative Necklace, today is the last day they are on sale for $15. Supplies are limited. $1 from the sale of each necklace goes to the ROUS Foundation for Capybara Veterinary Medicine, founded in Caplin’s honor.

Remembering Caplin Rous: 2008 D

Continuing on my memories of Caplin Rous as we approach what would have been his 5th birthday on July 10th. Don’t forget that if you’d like to buy a Caplin Rous Commemorative Necklace, they are on sale for $15 until his birthday. Supplies are limited.

The photo above shows why the necklace features both a capybara and a popsicle. There is nothing cuter than a capybara eating a popsicle but for some reason Garibaldi Rous will not do it. I guess that’s okay, it makes Caplin more unique.

July 10th is Caplin Day, aka Capybara Appreciation Day. Please have a popsicle in memory of Caplin Rous. Continue reading “Remembering Caplin Rous: 2008 D” »
