Caplin Day 2012

Caplin eating a popsicle

Owner’s blog:

I debated about what to post today. It’s a hard day for me, a day when I miss Caplin Rous more than ever. This would have been a big birthday for him. Five big years old. We would have had a party in a park like we did for his second birthday. All his fans would have been wishing him another happy year. By now he would have eclipsed Capyboppy, his only contender for the World’s Most Famous Capybara title. Instead I try to promote Caplin Day, aka Capybara Awareness Day, to keep his memory from dying.

Anyway, I decided to do something simple, to just post two photos. The one above was taken in November 2010 and shows Caplin Rous eating a popsicle, the signature food of a Caplin Day celebration.

Garibaldi Rous eating a popsicle

This is the only other photo I’m posting. In celebration of Caplin Day, Garibaldi Rous ate his first popsicle.

Don’t forget that if you’d like to buy a Caplin Rous Commemorative Necklace, today is the last day they are on sale for $15. Supplies are limited. $1 from the sale of each necklace goes to the ROUS Foundation for Capybara Veterinary Medicine, founded in Caplin’s honor.
