A Walk in the Mud

Let's go for a walk

It did a strange thing at my house this week…it RAINED! Rain is when water falls out of the sky. I think it might have to be cloudy and noisy too with flashes of bright light. But the main thing is the water. It falls everywhere, even on a capybara if he is sitting outside. But not on a Melly. A Melly says she will not go for a walk while it is raining.

Garibaldi is Sick: Vet Visit 5

 

Getting in the car

Owner’s blog:

After how good Garibaldi Rous has gotten about going on car rides, it’s a shame we had to take another long trip to the vet.

Garibaldi is Sick: Vet Visit 2

 

I may never get in the car again

Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me fifty times, well, I guess I have to accept all of the shame. But I’ve had it now. I am never getting in that car again! Can you believe it took me all the way out to College Station to go to the Texas A&M College of Veterinary Medicine? Do I look like the kind of capybara who wants to go to a college of veterinary medicine? No, I do NOT.
