Hi humans... This is Kero!
Gwydion didn't think to mention it, but I had my grooming appointment a week ago Monday. Of course, I always get a photo taken after my appointment... I only just make it through the door before Mami's asking me to pose! So, here's the best from the photos taken:
They did cut me shorter than they usually would have at this time of year, but it was because I had a few knots in my fur - where it had gotten wet so many times - and the humans decided it would be easier to just cut me a bit shorter than to make me sit still long enough for them to comb the knots out. So, because it's still so cold out, I have to wear my coat for some of my walkies. Sometimes it's sunny enough so I don't have to, but a lot of the time - especially when we're having our evening walkies - Mami says it's too cold for me to be out without my coat with such short fur. I prefer not to wear the coat (unless it's raining) but if it's a choice between wearing it or not getting walkies... Well, I guess I'm wearing the coat! Wouldn't you, given that choice?
And here's another couple of photos of me:
Firstt with Mami's laptop...
And then with some kind of toy...
The toy was for that little human pup they call, "Emma-Jane," who visits sometimes. She was having a birthday apparently. Personally, I don't think it's fair... Everyone else is getting their birthday now, but I have to wait until May for mine! I wanted to try and play with the human pup's toy, but beyond sniffing it I didn't get to do much, and I wouldn't even have gotten to do that much if Mami hadn't put it on the bed while she was sorting out the wrapping paper and tape to wrap it up for the human pup. I'm not even sure what a toy like that does... Mami did ttry to show me - after the photo was taken - but she did something that made something else pop up from where there had been nothing before, and that was scary, so I went away, and decided the toy was too scary to bother with after all. I hear the human pup really liked it though... She can keep it!
Those are the most exciting things that happened recently. The noisy humans are still around, but I'm getting bored of them. I don't even bother barking at them most times when they arrive now. Well, except for when one of them sometimes knocks on the door because they have to come inside to do something... Then I have to bark, because he needs to know that this is my home, and that I'm watching him closely while he's in it!
OK, so I'll let this do then. Besides, Mami sometimes takes me walkies in the afternoon as well, so I have to go and keep an eye on her... Just in case I spot her putting shoes on!
Licks and sniffs,
