Grazin' the grass is a gas

Grazin’ the grass is a gas

There’s something you should know about capybaras; we like three things. Those three things are: eating, sleeping, and swimming. I put them in the order of how much I like them, not how much time I spend doing them. Sleeping is my most time consuming activity, or lack thereof.

Outdoor Life

It's beautiful outside

why don’t you ever go outside, Driftwood?

From all of my posts and photos showing me indoors, you might think that is my life. That is misleading. Everyday I take MelT on a tour of our yard for at least an hour or two. Mostly she stands around looking bored, which I don’t understand. I can always find things to do. Continue reading “Outdoor Life” »

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

Owner’s blog:

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.

This photo posing with a slew of props for Cinco de Mayo is classically Caplin. He probably had more patience than any other ‘bura who has ever lived. Of course he didn’t much like the mustache but the point is he put up with it. And the little pinata is attached to his collar. And he’s on a bench/swing. It will be a whole lot more training before I can get Garibaldi to do this.
