Archie, AKA Archibald, is a 3-year-old poodle with a lush coat of curly white fur. He’s the friendly, energetic pooch of the office who gets along with everyone. We like to think of him as that friend you’d call if you were having a ‘ruff’ day who would hear you out and give you a cuddle. He’s cruisy, easy-going and, frankly, the least trouble which scores big points around here.
Because he’s so emotionally attached to his mum Kim, whenever she leaves the office for a client visit, he follows her to the door and cries until someone picks him up and comforts him. Needy much.
He’s also a bit of a chewer, but only on himself. It’s a pretty extreme habit and at times, he’s been known to get around with a cone on his head to stop him chewing his skin, poor darling.
Faster than a greyhound, Archie moves through the office at lightning speed. In fact, if he was human, we reckon he’d give Usain Bolt a run for his money.
A mixed bag of all good things, George, AKA GG is two and a half years old. He’s half King Charles spaniel, quarter poodle and quarter Tibetan spaniel. We think his Tibetan side shines through because he’s such a gentle soul. Mind you, he’s a pretty effective guard dog too – even if he is a miniature one – and will bark to alert us that someone is downstairs. Then he’ll lick them to death when he knows they’re welcome. Come to think of it, George is a serial feet licker. Anyone with fake tan on is a target! We all complain a bit about the licking, his signature move, but we have to accept him for all his quirks, right?
George enjoys a good scratch from anyone who looks his way and he naps like a boss. His life is one of a high-flying, minimally working, people-loving socialite. He’s rarely left alone – because he has serious FOMO – will party hard for ten minutes at a time and then nap for an hour. Don’t we all dream of that life?
We’ve concluded that George has little dog syndrome, but we forgive him pretty much anything because he’s a genuine asset to the Appoint team.
