Rabbit Update

She has a name

My new rabbit has a name! Thanks to all my fans for their help. The winning name is Dustabelle McLinty Poofball the 1st, suggested Jackie Hammond. That’s a pretty cute name but Winston Bumblebee Barcode the 1st said that there can be only one 1st and it is him. So we’ve decided to go with just Dustabelle. That’s a really cute name and it fits her really well. Plus it reminds us of little Rousabelle Capybara who is lost in the wilds of West Virginia and we are missing her and holding out hope for a safe return.

My 3rd Birthday

 

A scary start

I think my birthday party was a surprise party because no one was more surprised than me when a DOG showed up! That is Peri (short for Periscope). She has visited us before (read my Dog Invasion post) so I guess she is a friend? Melly said she is anyway but she is the scariest friend I have. I would NOT have invited her to my party but, sadly, Melly is in charge of these things and she often does not have my best interests at heart. Continue reading “My 3rd Birthday” »

Wow! This was the best birthday party EVER. But you know how it is after a big party, you’re really not capable of doing anything requiring cognitive thought. Sorry to say, the same thing is true of capybaras.

 

Party time!

I even asked Leopolda and Cassio to write something up. But if tortoises are slow before they’ve been partying, they are glacial afterward.

I’m afraid you are just going to have to wait until tomorrow night (my real birthday) to hear about the festivities in detail. In the meantime, you have just these two photos to whet your imaginations!

Spring Picnic

 

Me and Leopolda picnicking

We’ve been having some beautiful weather here lately so I have been spending a lot of time outside. As you can see from the photo above, I am not the only one who appreciates a little sunshine. That is my co-pet, Leopolda, aka Leah. She is an African leopard tortoise and she has been living with Melly for about 33 years, which is a long, long, long time. Continue reading “Spring Picnic” »

Garibaldi is Sick: Vet Visit 3

 

The calm before the storm

Whoever said it was easy being a capybara is wrong. Wait, did no one say that? Are you sure? I thought I heard someone say it was easy. No? Well then, the reason they don’t say it is because it is not true. It is hard being a capybara. You might think that having teeth that constantly grow is a good thing. No need to worry about cavities. But there is a dark side to tooth growth. A dark, painful side.
