LOUIE - The Office Dog

We swear that Louie, our 11 yr old Labrador, does not know he is not one of the human kind….Fiercely territorial, he regularly scares the living daylight out of deliverymen.

 

Not understanding he is not allowed in the meeting room when we get visitors, he sulks like a child and seeks sympathy from his best friend, Gary. As he is getting on a bit now, he spends most of his days sleeping, so he is the perfect office mascot.
