what was their first day in the office like? Eventful! Frankie loves people and other dogs so she loved meeting her colleagues and other pups in the building, but we spent most of the day trying to keep her from eating cigarette butts outside. She travels to London on the train in her dog bag, and is carried on a 30 minute walk to the office as it’s too big a journey for her little legs. She loves sitting in her bag and watching the world go by.

what is frankie's favourite thing to do in the office? Watch the world go by out of the windows.

does frankie ever get up to mischief/any embarrassing office stories? On a daily basis! She loves fishing into her colleague’s bags to see what she can find, her favourite find so far that she was keen to run around with and show the building were some smelly gym socks. She’s left a nice poopy present right by her Daddy’s desk, and upset mummy by gobbling a stray Malteaser.
paws in home bonus question! how is frankie coping with the UK on lockdown? Frankie pup has never known a proper lockdown! She’s been to the pub, restaurants and travelled by train, tube, taxi and bus!
