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!

Pool People

Me and MelT

Okay, okay already! I admit I was wrong about the pool. It is the best thing ever! And I’m not the only one to think so. Ever since I got my pool, people have been beating a path to it. They all want to go swimming with me. Of course, I swim with MelT the most since she lives here. That’s why I started this post with a photo of the two of us in the water. Normally, I don’t post photos of Melt for ethical reasons, but I’m making an exception in this case.

Where Are My Friends?

Me with my friends Rawil & Golnur from Tatarstan

Mudskipper’s post:

You might not know this, but I have friends from all over the world! Well, not exactly. I have friends from North America, South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia. This makes me happy! But I don’t have any friends from Antarctica, this makes me sad.
