Here I am!
I hope you can guess by the above photo that Fresno is my new rat co-pet. He’s got his paw right on my nose in the photo above. That is very close to my giant teeth, as you can see, so it is lucky for him that I don’t bite. I am actually hoping that he will scratch my belly, but you’ll have to read the rest of the post to find out if he does. Continue reading “Where’s Fresno?” »
Gari & Dobby
This post introduces what I hope will be a continuing feature, the Capy Diablog. The Diablog features a conversation (or dialog) between two capybaras, Garibaldi Rous and Dobby Winnick.

A version of this post also exists on Dobby’s blog. Continue reading “Capy Diablog: Favorite Foods” »

Gari with Bakersfield on the window seat
Do you remember when I introduced you to my new rat co-pet Bakersfield last month? Well, here he is again! We are learning to get along, which seems much easier for Bake than it is for me. Bake is like the bravest rodent that ever lived and I guess I might be the most fearful. See how relaxed he looks in the photo above? See how my hair is bristling on my neck to show how nervous I am? See how little he is? See how big I am?
