Parsnip & Emma
Favourite treat: Crave chicken chunks or a cheeky quaver crisp.
Favourite cuddles: Tickle tummies on his back with his legs in the air.
Favourite game: Fetch but he actually does not give you the ball back to play so you have to hold 2 balls at a time.
What gets their tail wagging most? The smell of steak cooking in the kitchen.
What job do Parnsip and Em do? I am a hairdresser and Parsnip is my handy assistant.
What was their first day in the office/home office like? I work in a salon so Parnsip had to get used to people coming in and out pretty quickly! He likes to give everyone a good lick and sniff to suss them out when they walk in. He hopes they have a snack to give him!
How often does Parsnip go to the office? He is in the salon most days apart from Tuesday when he goes to Doggy Day care for the day where he plays with all his friends. They have a swimming pool for the dogs in the summer.
What is Parsnip's favourite thing to do in the office? He is a very cheeky dog and likes to watch the hair fall on the floor and then put it in his mouth as he knows he will get a treat when he drops it back on the floor.
Does Parsnip like sharing his office space? Luckily there are no other dogs who come into the salon as he would get very jealous of people not giving him attention. He’s definitely an attention seeker!
Other than you (of course) who is Parsnip's favourite colleague? It has to be my Mum as she works with me as well though he's biased as she lives with him too haha!
How has having parsnip at work improved the working environment? It makes people happy when they see Parnsip as he always looks like he is smiling. It definitely boosts everyone’s mood when they see a dog!
Does parsnip ever get up to mischief/any embarrassing office stories? He is obsessed with chewing socks and knickers - once my client brought her overnight bag which was left open whilst we were washing her hair and he went through the bag found her knickers and zoomed past me with the knickers in his mouth! I had to chase him around the garden to get them back!
