Adjusting to office life has been an interesting experience for me. I’m far busier when I am in the office than at any other time – always on my feet, rushing from one task to the next. It’s a real change being on my feet all day, as when I’m not in the office I spend most of my time sleeping. I love office life, though! It’s hard to choose my favourite bit but it would probably either be when I am able to motivate the whole team away from their desks for play and belly rubs or when the recycling bins are full of lovely paper for me to shred. I do enjoy shredding.
I always like to start my day with a few (dozen) laps around the office. This lets me check on the whole team, make sure they haven’t forgotten the belly rubs protocol and generally remind them that they should be paying attention to me at all times; it’s vital they stay motivated and they can’t do that if they are looking at those strange boxes on their desks rather than at me. The rest of the day will inevitably include some focused shredding, which I try to spread around the office in order to demonstrate best shredding practice to the team. I also like to frequently remind the team of my presence – they are so easily distracted by those glowing boxes – by repeating the morning’s laps, conducting thorough checks under all the desks, and bringing the team various tools to aid concentration, such as my own rubber bone or blanket. I will occasionally indulge in a little lie down if it has been a particularly busy day.
Energetic. Entertaining. Excitable.
Endearing. Exuberant. Ebullient.
If it runs away, chase it: if it runs towards you, run away.
Probably running in my favourite place: Lyme Park.
I would be interested in further developing my skills in the chase and capture of squirrels and birds. I am extremely fast but they seem to have some expertise which has so far eluded me; I am determined to continue my hard work and one day hope to match their speed and cunning. I am sure the team will help me in this goal: they are very supportive of my running when I practice it in the office and they will sometimes chase me so I can get into the mindset of my competition.
