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.

Melly tells me Caplin clicked at her, bit at her shell and tried to chase her around the yard, except that she didn’t care. I guess I’m just more easy going than Caplin was because I don’t feel any need to chase Leah. There’s grass enough for everybody, that’s my motto.
