Caplin Day 2013

Me and Caplin Rous

Melly’s Blog:

Today is Caplin Day. On this day, July 10th, in 2007 Caplin Rous was born in Nacogdoches, Texas. I didn’t know it, but the birth of that tiny capybara would change my life. He changed other people’s lives too, teaching people around the world about the intelligent and affectionate nature of capybaras. When I lost him on January 4th, 2011, I lost a huge part of myself.

Garibaldi is Sick: Update 2

 

The sleep of innocence

I’m writing this update myself because I am not so sick anymore. When my teeth were really hurting, I had some trouble controlling Melly’s feeble mind because I could not focus. That meant she wrote the blog posts herself, which was a disaster.

What’s For Dinner?

Me eating a piece of corn

A better question is what’s not for dinner.

I am a hungry capybara, no question about it. Well, it’s just that I’m growing so fast I need to eat a whole lot. These past few weeks that I’ve been living at my new home with Melly and Rick, I have been putting over two pounds per week. It’s hard work growing that fast!

Hungry, Hungry Capybaras

How much can those little guys eat?

My owner says the Capycoppies were made in my image and I guess it must be true because they are just like me in that they love yogurt. I’m not so crazy about their yogurt consumption though. What if my owner runs out? I am not sure she has really planned for this.

Stop begging!

They don’t give me a moment’s peace. Look at them eying my yogurt in my bowl!  My owner gave them their own but it is just never enough.

Capycoppy feeding frenzy

I almost sympathize with this. My owner really never gives me enough and the Capycoppies are probably always hungry. I suppose they are still growing and might someday be as big as me.

How many bowls of yogurt can they eat?

I guess I shouldn’t ask that question since it has never been answered for me and I am only one capybara. Poor little guys aren’t really that good at sharing.

Like Capy like Coppy

I’m Turning Japanese


Me on the NHK website

About a week ago my owner and I did a Skype interview with the Japanese TV station NHK for their show Tokodane Toku doga.
