NOW where did I put my keys?

This motorcycle mutt looks ready for a cruise in the sunshine at Bracelet Bay, near Mumbles.

The Jack Russell was surrounded by curious humans when his master popped into the public toilets.

Kitted out with a snazzy helmet and goggles, the highway hound's ears soaked up the rays as he kept a close eye on his Teddy bears.

Former motorcyclist Paul Hopkins, who was inside the nearby Castellamare restaurant at the time, said he was distracted when the motorcycle pulled up just outside.

"I saw something unusual," he said.

"I was intrigued by this animal, and went to have a look. The dog was sitting there quite peacefully in his helmet. About 15 people crowded around, took pictures and were saying, 'Isn't he sweet'.

"Then he started barking. He was looking for his keeper."

Mr Hopkins, of Mumbles, said his master then emerged — and the duo headed off into the sunshine.

"I think it's a wonderful thing for people to see," he said.
