My 2nd Stalkers!

Me and my stalkers

Me and my stalkers

Hi all! Well, I’m back, Mudskipper Rous, after a bit of an absence due to MelTs laziness. You really cannot imagine just how lazy she is! And she’s always blaming it on her brain damage, which is ridiculous. That was over a year ago, get over it! Anyway, my new post is about two great stalkers who visited me all the way from Tatarstan, which is in Russia. That’s a long way away. And they brought the World’s Most Traveled Super Capy with them. You can see a photo of the five of us together above. (Six if you count Supre Capy, which you should.)

Cuteness Test

Hello!

Hello!

Hello! It’s me again, Mudskipper Rous. MelT has decided that I have to test my cuteness level to see if I’m cute enough to have a blog. I admit, I might not be as cute and Garibaldi or Caplin, but I am doing my best. If I get a lot of (positive) comments, I get to continue. Otherwise…

Hey! it’s me again, Mudskipper Rous. I bet you missed me because I haven’t blogged in a while. I’m a very busy capybara.

The photo of me above was taken on Feb. 17th. That was one short month ago. I was just a baby then and could hardly reach my toys. Continue reading “Playtime!” »

The Capy in Winter

The path to Capybara Creek

The path to Capybara Creek

There is one thing you should know about capybaras: we do not like the cold! I know, I know, Dobbye Winnick lives where it is always cold and you never here him complaining. That is just because he doesn’t know any better. Capybaras and cold weather do not–or at least should not–mix. Nevertheless, it does happen, even here in central Texas, that a terrible cold front blows down from the arctic where the polar bears live. The horrendous nature of this catastrophe cannot be overstated. And what about my swimming? I can’t swim in ice water you know! What is a poor, helpless capybara to do?

Acting Like a Cat

I am a fastidious capybara

People are always asking Melly if I am “house trained.” What is up with that? How rude can you be! I often contemplate asking them right back. If their manners are so poor it is quite possible that they are not house trained! But obviously I am too gentile a capybara to dignify such a question by remarking on it. (In case you are wondering but not so rude as to actually ask, you can learn about my toilet habits by reading my blog post Privacy Please!) Continue reading “Acting Like a Cat” »
