Colman is my best mate, so I thought I’d better tell you about him. I’m Kevin. I run our Facebook page and Mummy said I should help Dylan out on this A to Z Thing.
Colman and I come from Jersey, which is an island between England and France. Colman’s older than me; he’s six now, going on seven. That’s really old, but he doesn’t look it most of the time. Just if you get him in a bad light or if he’s feeling his arthritis a bit.
We had to find a new home because our Jersey Mummy couldn’t keep us any more, and we had a long journey by sea and road to her mummy’s house, then our new Mummy took us away from her. Colman hated that. He was really angry at Mummy for ages. It wasn’t until Christmas that he stopped biting her. Then in February he had a special afternoon having his picture taken, and he won a prize for it, and he’s been in love with Mummy ever since.
I think Mummy must have written the story of the Talent Seekers before that, or she would never have made him the baddie. But he’s there, and he’s a baddie, and she’s writing some more about that next month, so I’m not allowed to tell you any more.
Colman’s an agouti pig, which is the colour of his hair, really. It’s very distinguished. He has a funny way with his hair, which sort of meets in a peak along his back. We live in a big run in Mummy’s office. We like our own space, though we still share things for a short time. Every one needs a bit of their own space sometimes, don’t you think?
Dylan’s back tomorrow. I warn you, he’ll be insufferable, because it’s the letter D.
