Capy Valentine's Day

It's been way too long since our last blowg post so here is quick message from me and Mini.

We caps would like to spread some love around today, because us caps are lovable like that. We dare you to meet a capybara and not love him or her!

As the great Caplin Rous once said, "Love is a capybara." We miss you, Caplin, and wish you were still with us.



Here are some other things we love:

Welcoming Capycoppy to our family and making totem poles with him:




That Girl and The Mister:




And of course, all our Twitter friends who make our lives so much more fun.

Capy Valentine's Day everyone!

The Cap Travels - Tokyo




Hiii!I'm back from my whirlwind tour of Tokyo, Vietnam and finally, HONG KONG. It felt *great* to be back in Tokyo. The Mister and I saw all my old relatives like Uncle Joe and Grandpa Cap, and met some new additions like Cupcake Cap and Frying Pan Cap.

While we were there, there was an earthquake! We were staying on the 15th floor and there was a lot of shakin!

Here I am on the television clinging for dear life with my tiny feet. Onscreen is a report of how strong the quake was. Nobody was hurt. Phew!

Mini and the King

If you've been following us on Twitter, you'll know that Mini successfully stowed away to London last week. Mini learned how to squeak with a British accent and rode a double decker bus but sadly spent most of his time hidden in That Girl's suitcase while she was busy at her conference. Apparently conferences aren't welcoming of capybaras. Hmf!

On her last day in London, That Girl had a day off and took Mini out exploring. They went all over London and the day ended at the gigantic British Museum, home of the Rosetta Stone and many other amazing artifacts. Mini's most exciting moment was at the foot of the Assyrian King Shamshi-Adad V. The stele, or stone slab carving, comes from around 824 BC. That's almost 2800 years older than Mini! Here, the King is depicted next to the symbols of his principle gods. I wonder if one of them was a capybara?

Capy Birthday To Me, From Me.

I am kind of upset. It was my birthday on January 21st, and my owners *forgot*. How could they do this to me? Don't they love me anymore? I turned four without even knowing it! That Girl feels very bad, and she says she will get me a cake. I guess I should also mention that That Girl has been sick this past week, so maybe that's why she forgot. Don't worry, she doesn't have the piggy flu or capy flu, not there would ever be such a thing as that, but she has been sleeping a lot and there is a very large mountain of Kleenex on her side of the bed.

In other news, my friend Caplin wrote a great post about capys in my homeland! We caps are very special creatures in Japan. In the photo, it looks like Caplin is next to Mini - and maybe it is Mini. He's been missing for a week!

*NOT* a funny photo

A few years ago, that girl was about to bake a cake and thought that putting me in the oven would be funny. I think not!!

Snowcap!

Are you thinking snowcapped mountains? Think again.



 
Now that's a snowcap! That Girl and The Mister went cross country skiing the other day. They must have been missing me and Mini to draw this terribly cute capybara in the snow.
