Visiting Dobby

mom
This week, my mom is in town. Yesterday I asked her what she wanted to do and she said “could we meet that capybara?”

of course
Well, sure! Our friend in Seattle has a pretty famous capybara named Dobby. He has a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/dobbywinnick and a blog at http://hippopotatomus.blogspot.com/

I hadn’t seen Dobby in well over a year, but I remember he was a sweet guy. He let my mom scratch his chin and pet him.

convo
Then they had a good conversation.

sweet
I told Dobby how sweet and cute he was.

poofy
And he got really poofy. His people said that means he’s happy, so that’s a good thing.

Dobby
Dobby has a great snout.

feet
Fancy feet.

bristle
And bristle-y fur like a scrub brush.

like
I think Dobby liked me.

shoe
He kissed my shoes.

rolled
And rolled over so I could pet his belly.

all
Dobby is an all-around stand-up guy. As you may know, capybaras are the largest rodents on Earth. Dobby weighs about 115lbs. That’s right… one hundred and fifteen pounds of capybara goodness.

glad
I’m glad mom had such a good idea to go visit Dobby, and happy his people were so nice to let us visit on short notice.

dobby
Thanks, Dobby! Great to see you buddy. Hope we can visit again really soon.
