Puppy Day

 

Nose to nose to nose

On Sunday my friend Sheldon brought over his two Boston terrier puppies, Juju and Tali. (Tali is in blue and Juju in purple.) When I heard dogs were coming to visit, you can imagine I was none too excited. I decided to go hide somewhere in the house. That is pretty hard now that I am a full grown capybara, not nearly as many places to hide, but I figured I’d think of something.

Garibaldi is Sick: A Turn for the Better!

Garibaldi Rous' poop bowl

Owner’s blog:

I don’t think I have ever featured capybara poop as the opening photo of a blog post but this is a momentous occasion and cause for great joy and celebration! After three days, Garibaldi finally pooped! It’s not the explosion of poop that might have been anticipated but it absolutely means his digestive tract is still functioning. What a tremendous relief!
