A Scratch on the Porch

 

Morning nap

One morning I was sleeping on the front porch, as I usually do, when Melly appeared with her camera. Melly doesn’t always have time to spend with me on the porch, she usually has to go to work, or work from home or clean the house, but on days when she does have time, she always has her camera. Because she has the camera, she has to use it. This causes her to document my whole life, even the boring parts like me sleeping on the porch. And even from a bad angle like in the photo above.

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father's Day!

One of my viewers sent me a request to have my photo taken with a little sign wishing her father–who I hear is The World’s Best Dad–a happy Father’s Day. I was just supposed to email it to him, which I will do, but it got me thinking. There are a lot of great dads out there. They probably all deserve signs. I can’t make one for everyone so I’m going to post this same photo with the dad’s name. My viewers can photoshop in the right name or just print the photo and write in a new name. I would love to hear if anyone decides to do this and what the reaction of the recipient dad is. In the meantime…

Happy Father’s Day to all you great dads out there!


By the way, Steve has a guinea pig rescue operation and so I know he really is a great guy!

The Snarl

My snarling face

Do I look fearsomely scary in the photo above? I should! That is my snarl. Coral took this photo of me when she was staying with us. I used this face on her all the time trying to scare her away. Eventually, it worked, although it did take much longer than I was expecting.

I think part of the reason my snarl doesn’t scare people is because I also make this face when I am happy or playing. We capybaras don’t have a lot of diversity in facial expressions so each one has to serve multiple functions.
