Contest: Caplin Day 2013

 

Melly with Caplin Rous dressed as a horse

Caplin Rous’  birthday is coming up on July 10th. He would have been six this year. Melly still misses him every single day and I still struggle to live up to his legacy. One of the things Caplin was great at that I am not so good at was wearing costumes. See that photo above? Melly made him up as a horse for the PetCo Halloween costume contest in 2008. He made a pretty cute horse.

Grazing Buddies

 

Grazing

I guess most people know that because of my bad teeth, I am supposed to do more grazing. Melly even planted a nice pasture full of grass that she said was just for me. Only–no big surprise here–she lied. I actually have to share my pasture with some other animals.

Capy Diablog: Favorite Foods

 

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. Most of you probably already know Dobby from his blog, Dobby the Capybara. Dobby is actually Caplin Rous’ full younger brother, but he has become like a big brother to Garibaldi. A version of this post also exists on Dobby’s blog. Continue reading “Capy Diablog: Favorite Foods” »

Backyard Adventure

 

Start of an adventure

Let’s get something straight right out the outset: this post is about an adventure but I do not like adventures. One thing I don’t like about them is that they always start with me having to wear my harnesses and my leash. Is a torture session an adventure? Not unless you are really warped. So the title of this post is Melly’s idea. I would have titled it, “Poor capybara tormented by owner,” or something like that.

Maple WoMER: The Dread Pirate Rabbit

 

Yo, ho, ho and a bottle of carrot juice!

Maple WoMER (see this post if you don’t know how she got that name) has spent the past couple of weeks really living up to her name. I don’t know why she would do that because it seems like the most horrible thing ever. Not only has Melly been complaining about how much Maple costs ($2500 and counting!), but Maple has suffered a lot. This week she had to go to the vet and have her eye taken out! As terrible as that sounds, I think Maple feels better without the eye than she did with it. I don’t want to get into details about why.
