favourite treat: Ham.

what gets their tail wagging most? When she looks out the car window and see’s we’ve pulled up outside the office.
what job do bonnie and sarah do? Sarah is Head of Marketing at Creative Pod, a full-service marketing agency, based in Gatwick. Bonnie won over everyone in the office and quickly joined the team as Barketing Assistant at Creative Pod.
what was their first day in the office like? The first day was really exciting, but I couldn’t get over how much stuff I had to bring! As I got Bonnie in Lockdown2, I was doing my best to socialise her in as many situations as possible. Taking her into the office meant she was able to meet other people and experience new situations. It also gave the team a really big boost. I’m very lucky, that I was able to do this and I can leave a bed and toys for her in the office and that our office backs onto some fields for her to run around in.
how often does bonnie go to the office? We are still hybrid working at the moment, so she comes in 2-3 times a week.
what is bonnie's favourite thing to do in the office? She gets so excited when we walk in through the door. She runs around like a lunatic jumping onto everyone’s lap to say hello and give them a cuddle. The team all look forward to their morning cuddle.
does bonnie like sharing her office space? Yes, she loves it. As soon as anyone is in the meeting room, she also likes to sit with them in there and be part of everything that’s going on.
other than you (of course) who is bonnie's favourite colleague? My colleague Sadie Chillingworth. She came to meet Bonnie when I was off on Pawternity leave, so she was already very familiar with her when she came into the office for the first time.
how has having bonnie at work improved the working environment? I asked the team this, as I really wanted to get their honest views and it was really lovely to hear some of the below:
“Bonnie brings a smile to everyone at the office, having her around keeps everyone entertained and she really makes the office a brighter place to be.”
“She's always super excited to see you and sometimes just having her around or on your lap whilst you're working on something tricky or having a long day, can be really nice”.
does bonnie ever get up to mischief/any embarrassing office stories? When we were still working on her toilet training, she went through a phase of having accidents in the print room 💩👀
