Dobby loves visitors. He understands the word “visitor,” and I prompt him before their arrival so he knows to expect
extra corn new faces. He appreciates all visitors, but I have noticed he has a marked preference for females and is very respectful of very young and very old visitors who are calm, curious, and respectful. Dobby has a reputation for being naughty, but he does have a sweet side and he is very sensitive to the emotional response he triggers in guests.
This blog is written by Mclaren, a young visitor who arranged this meeting with Dobby for her younger sister Tatum, an authentic capybara aficionado. She truly captures the mood of first-time guests and possibly presents a more authentic view of Dobby than I do. Certainly he can’t always be as silly as I make him out to be!
Dobby; a cute capybara! Here he is eating a piece of corn inside. My sister and I had so much fun feeding him. He is a strong boy!
We soon went outside with Dobby. We of course brought the corn. One of his favorites! He is eating it off the table instead of our hands.
Dobby loved his own personal hot tub! He got to roll around in it! It was quite an experience seeing a capybara in a pool! That day when we visited Dobby, it was raining, what a treat to be in a warm bath after the cold rain passes.
Dobby did lots of fun tricks for us! It was quite a fun show! He liked to touch his nose to the ball and get rewarded with a bite of corn or lettuce. What a good capybara!
Dobby was a silly boy! Getting to know his unique personality was quite a treat! He was very funny and very photogenic. We loved meeting Dobby!
Dobby’s other favorite was lettuce! He was very fond of this treat!
Dobby liked a good scratch! He laid down and let Stacy scratch his belly. He was very sweet and knew who he could trust.
Thank you Dobby and Stacy! My sister and I had a wonderful time visiting Dobby! Thank you and best wishes to you and Dobby!
