A Converstation With National Geographic

Me with Garibaldi Rous

Me with Garibaldi Rous

The following is my latest exchange with National Geographic Magazine concerning their article on Wild Pets. The first part of this exchange can be found in my post Why I Hate National Geographic Magazine. The first quoted text is an email I received from them in response to the email I sent. The second quoted text is my response.

How Much is that Capy in the Window?

My Gari I never will sale!

Stacy Winnick, owner of the infamous Dobbye Winnick, did a recent post on her blog, Dobbye the Capybara,  about the costs of keeping a pet capybara. This is a very important topic for anyone considering getting a pet capybara or any other pet for that matter. Just how much does it cost to keep a capybara?

Melly Update

Melly at the hopsital

Well, after a month of vacation, Melly is finally home from the hospital. As many of you know, she had a stroke in her right visual cortex. She is mostly okay but she can’t see very well. She lost vision in the left side of both eyes. It’s all very complicated but she is going to write it up as a little story, which she claims will be funny but I’m not so sure. I think I like her better without hair, although it took a little getting used to. What do you think?

Capy om the conversation.

Everybody has been coming over to visit since Melly got home and they are all making a fuss over her instead of me. I think this is because I was sitting on the floor whereas all of the humans were on the chairs or couches. I felt much more included when I got on my favorite blue chair. Melly says she can’t edit the photos very well so she hopes they look okay. Of course, any photo of a capybara is going to look cute, especially if it’s me (just saying).

For those of you who are too curious to wait for Melly’s full story, the summary is that she had a AV Fistula that resulted in a large bleed. She had two craniotomies (that’s where they open your brain up) in one operation, one on the right back of her skull to close up the fistula and one on the upper right to take out the “pancake” of blood that had accumulated there. This has left her with 16 inches of scar, which is totally awesome! (As long as it’s not on me.)

New Puzzle?


Puzzle Choice #1 - Dignified Gari

The company where I had my previous puzzles made ( view them here) is having a sale, which ends tomorrow. Because the sale price is pretty good, I am tempted to make another puzzle, this time 336 pieces. I’d like to get some feedback but I don’t have much time. The puzzle would cost about $13.50 plus shipping. If you think you would be interested in purchasing one of these puzzles, please respond using the poll on the right side bar.

Thanks for your help! Continue reading “New Puzzle?” »
