Hi there humans. This is Kero here.
Well, my Mami human is still not well, so I have to keep a close eye on her. Dadi and Mamgu said she wasn't allowed to take me walkies though, which is so not fair! Dadi has been taking me, but I wish my Mami could take me. Mami says if I just give her a couple more days then she will take me no matter if she's fully better or not, and no matter what Dadi and Mamgu say. Like I said, Dadi has been taking me, it's just... Well, I just like walkies when Mami comes best! Dadi doesn't really do anything different. I just don't like leaving mami at home while I go out for walkies.
I've seen a few of my doggy friends while out for walkies with Dadi. Including a pair of Jack Russels. I don't remember the male's name, but the female's name was Roxy. I don't think I've met them before. They seemed really nice; from what I could tell. Roxy refused to let me sniff her properly. I let her sniff me from nose to tail, but she wouldn't let me sniff near her tail end. Some females are like that. I have no idea why, but it's just something I've noticed with some females.
Anyway, I may have saved Gwydion's life the other day. Dadi opened the kitchen window wide, because the thing that beeps when there's smoke in the house is very sensative and goes off with even just a little steam. That wasn't a big deal. The thing was, he forgot to close it afterwards. Anyway, next thing I know this big cat has gotten in through the window and is on top of Gwydion's cage. I wasn't having that!
I barked and growled at it, and made it get down. Then I chased it around the kitchen until I had it cornered by the back door. And then I called Mami (who was asking me what I was barking for this time) to show her. When she realised about the now hissing cat I'd cornered, she told me I was a good dog. I was really pleased about that, and stepped back a bit to tell Mami she was in charge of what happened to the cat from this point. Only, the cat took advantage of me taking a step back from it, and it jumped back out of the kitchen window. I was worried Mami would be mad I let it get away, but she wasn't. She still said I was a, "good dog," and she even gave me a treat to show me she meant it.
The cat didn't dare come back after that (I did patrol the house - especially the kitchen - for about an hour afterwards to be sure).
Oh, yeah... I know you'll be wondering, so... Gwydion was completely fine after it... I guess I got to the cat in time. He was a bit quiet that evening, but that's about it, and he was back to his noisy self by the next morning.
When Dadi found out what happened (he was at the shop when it happened) he checked on Gwydion, made sure the window was closed, and then... Well, then he noticed that I'd knocked over a tray of his special little soldier figure things that are in the room Gwydion is in. I was sure I was going to get in big trouble for that; nobody does stuff to Dadi's figures and gets away with it. I was pleasantly surprised though when Dadi said he wasn't mad about the mess I'd made of the figures, since Gwydion was more important, and I was a really good boy for protecting Gwydion.
That's about all that's happened recently; maybe things will pick up when Mami gets better?
Licks and sniffs,
