what gets their tail wagging most? Bootiful ladies who make a fuss overhim.
what job do finley and jonty do? Finley is a Barketing manager and Jonty is a video producer and business owner specialising in video marketing.
what was their first day in the office like? Finley has only worked with me at home so far during the pandemic so he doesn’t know much different. But loves having me around, as I do with him.
what is finley's favourite thing to do in the office? Finley likes to hoon it around my home office perfecting his slipper stealing abilities. Particularly whilst I’m on a client zoom call.
does finley like sharing his office space? Absolutely not. Finley called an executive board-meeting on his first day and negotiated his own dedicated office space as he says the sound of me typing is distracting.
other than you (of course) who is finley's favourite colleague? Our camera-operator and editor, Luke.
how has having finley at work improved the working environment? Boosted morale, provided entertainment and lots of cuddles. Giving Finley a loving home is the best thing I’ve ever done. He’s my best mate and has given me structure and companionship which I feel very lucky to have.
does finley ever get up to mischief/any embarrassing office stories? I spent 40 minutes installing a baby-gate at the top of the stairs to stop him escaping. Didn’t last long before he decided to bust out his Houdini party trick and squeeze his little bum through the bannisters. 10/10 for intelligence though!
paws in home bonus question! how is finley coping with the UK on lockdown? Loves having the extra fuss with me being at home. Being such a new pup, he doesn’t know much different. I’ll eventually have him come to video shoots with me ... as long as he promises not to poop or nibble our clients toes.
