The Office Dogs
The office is kept in check by all the dogs! 2 belong to Nigel and 1 belongs to Stu.
Basil is the miniature dachshund, he is 7 and loves sunbathing.
Nelly is a 4 year old Cocker Spaniel. She is like the tasmanian devil with a tennis ball! She's not in the office often, and if you've seen her you will know why!
Daisy is the newest member of the team. Starting work on 27th November 2017 aged just 8 weeks! She is a 'red' labrador, very chilled out and has fitted in really well with the rest of the clan so far.
Jazz has been a loyal member of the team for over 13 1/2 years. She could be found chilling under Nigel's desk for the most part but enjoyed visiting everyone's work stations for crumbs at regular intervals during the day. Sadly we had to say goodbye to Jazz on February 24th 2017. Her presence in the office is greatly missed.
Rest in peace Jazz <3
Bella is Stu's 2 year old German Shepherd. You will hear her the minute you walk in the door, but once she's licked you to death she settles back down!
