Sit is one of my tricks

Hi again! Mudskipper here. Hope you havent been waiting too long for my blog post. This will be worth it though. I’m very cute in this one.

For such a little capybara I know a lot of tricks. They are all tricks to get MelT to give me a treat. She’s a pushover for such things.

Me and the vets

If you have been following my exploits (and I think you’d better have a darned good excuse if you haven’t been), then you know that I recently went to the small animal clinic at Texas A&M University (TAMU) in College Station, Texas to have some abscesses removed.

Just Another Day

It's good to have friends

Today was supposed to be the end of the world according to some humans. We animals never bought into it, really. But I was still happy to have a couple of my closest friend plushies with me for my morning nap. You probably recognize the one on my right, that is Capycoppy. The one on the left is Blaccarat. He is a plush rat that Stacy Winnick brought all the way from Washington state. When he saw how much better the weather is here, he decided not to go back.
