Hi humans, it's Kero here.
Gwydion developed a bit of a cough last weekend, so Mami got him some medicine that she poured all over his veggies each day. He had some Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Now his cough seems much better. Mami says she's glad, because she was hoping to avoid taking him to the vet. Mami says it's less money and less hastle if things you can just buy from the shop work. I heard her telling Mamgu that if she needed to take him, she would, but she was hoping to just give him the medicine stuff and not have to shove him in his carry box and take him to the vet. As for me, I think that little guinea pig had a really lucky escape! When I was sick earlier in the year, I got taken to the vet. Mind you, mine wasn't just a cough... I was being sick, plus I had that lump by my eye. But, anyway, Gwydion had a lucky escape, is fine now, and didn't end up going to the vet for his cough, and Mami has plenty of the medicine left, so if his cough shows up again she can give him some more medicine right away, and catch his cough quickly again.
I've been on some great walkies with Mami. We walked further, so I had some new places to sniff. I kind of wanted to go further again, but I was a bit nervous about it, and since Mami seemed to be too, we both agreed not to go further just yet. We've also had some extra walkies, since most days we've gone at least two times!
I figured out how to get over the fence in the back garden, and thought it was great fun having Mamgu and Dadi chase me about to get me back in. They, apparently, disagreed though, since they've now made the fence higher, and I can't jump it any more.
Willow came for a sleepover last Friday night. She was meant to stay for the whole weekend, but her and I kept fighting over who was getting which treat, so Mamgu decided to take her back to the house. Well, in my defence, the treats were my chewies from my treat tub. Also - as Mami and Mamgu pointed out to Dadi - both Willow and I are used to having our stuff to ourselves. I know we spent those couple of months sharing stuff - or trying to - at the start of this year, but we've spent most of the rest of our lives not having to share. Well, I did have to share a lot for the first couple of years, but that's it. And, I mean, I'm almost 6 and a half, and Willow is almost 6, so it is understandable that neither of us is eager to share, really.
I haven't had as many leftovers this past few days. Mamgu is eating more of her dinner. It's good in a way, because it means she's eating better. But, in another way, it's not good, because it means less leftovers for me. That means I have to mostly just eat dog food! Can you believe it? Well, at least the humans are feeding me on Cesar... That's a good brand, and has a picture of a Westie on the packaging, which can't be a bad thing, can it? But, still... I'd much rather human leftovers than dog food!
Someone is parking their car outside, so I better publish this so I can go bark at them.
Licks and sniffs,
