Caplin Day 2019

My Caplin Day popsicle

I can’t believe it is Caplin Day again already! Wow, the year went by really fast. Maybe that’s because  I haven’t been posting like I said I would for my New Year’s resolution. I guess I’m not the first capybara to fail to keep one of those.

Pool treat

Caplin Day is also known as Capybara Appreciation Day. We celebrate it on July 10th because that is Caplin Rous’ birthday. He would be 11 years old today. One of Caplin’s favorite foods was popsicles, that’s why popsicles are a traditional Caplin Day treat. I am not a huge fan of them so I just ate a little for the photo-op.

Swimming, rolling, and sleeping are also good Caplin Day festivities. Unlike the noisy celebrations humans like (I’m talking about you July 4th!), capybaras prefer a subdued affair with family and close friends. MelT and I celebrated alone this year. I guess that is about as subdued as it gets. Unless I had to celebrate alone, but then who would feed me my popsicle and that the pictures?

Let me know if any of you had a fun Caplin Day!

Spanish Students Video

Me with some Spanish students

You probably remember that I had a bunch of Spanish students from a local school visit me last month. Well, one of the teachers made a rather excellent video of me. I’d like to share that with you.

That is so much better than anything MelT has done! Even though I mostly kept my nose against the wall, I still came out looking good.

Meeting My Bear

It has been a long time since my last post. I’ve been a bit under the weather. My pneumonia cleared up but I am still not quite myself. MelT is always worrying about me, even when I’m in tip-top shape, so you can imagine what a stress her stress is putting on me! Plus, we have both been lazy. The days are short now, MelT says they will get longer again some day, but it is depressing.
