School Visit: Reilly Elementary

 

Here we go again!

It’s not easy being a Capybara Ambassador (in training). It’s not all tweeting and posting cute photos. Some of it involves actual, inperson (incapybara?) interaction…with children! I’m not saying I’m scared of children or anything, after all, they’re just baby humans, but there is something a little intimidating about them. Maybe it’s how active they are. Or how noisy.

Run, Capybara, Run!


Running on my leash

I am not big on running but Melly is big on photographing me running. It’s one of our many conflicts. You can see in the photo above that I am not easy to photograph when I am going fast. I tend to blur due to my great speed! (Just kidding!) I am much better at sleeping, but we’ll get to that in my next post.
