This whole Dobby trip is taking a long time to relate. I’d say it’s about four times as long in blog posts as it was in real life! I guess that’s just how big a star Dobby is. Today’s post finishes up the whole adventure by covering his swimming pool exploits and the sudden deterioration of our relationship, as well as a bit of Seattle tourism.

Meeting Romeo and Tuffn

Romeo, Tuff’n and Family

One of the great things about the BlogPaws conference being on Las Vegas was that it gave me the chance to meet the famous capybara “brothers,” Romeo and Tuff’n. Oh, and their humans, Marvin and Elizabeth, too. In the photo above, Marvin is on the left, then Romeo, Tuff’n is grazing, and Elizabeth is on the right in the back.

This month I attended the 2014 BlogPaws Conference held at the Westin Hotel in Lake Las Vegas, Nevada. It was a bittersweet time because I really missed Garibaldi Rous. I was hoping to have him attend the conference with me this year but things did not go well for either of us.

Stacy Winnick, owner of the infamous Dobbye Winnick, did a recent post on her blog, Dobbye the Capybara, ¬†about the costs of keeping a pet capybara.

Acting Like a Cat

People are always asking Melly if I am “house trained.” What is up with that? How rude can you be! I often contemplate asking them right back. If their manners are so poor it is quite possible that they are not house trained! But obviously I am too gentile a capybara to dignify such a question by remarking on it. (In case you are wondering but not so rude as to actually ask, you can learn about my toilet habits by reading my blog post Privacy Please!) Continue reading “Acting Like a Cat” »
