8.45am – Arrive at the office with tail wagging and ready for anything
In addition to barketing and pawblic relations, my responsibilities include caring for the team’s wellbeing . So it’s important I set the right tone at the start of the day. I like to check in with every team member and find out how they’re doing (and establish if they have any interesting food).
9am – TDaily team meeting
I sit next to Haris. He’s pawesome.
9.30am – Have a nap
I’ve been up since 7am and only had a short nap after breakfast, so it’s time for a rest. Regular breaks are so important for physical and mental health.
10am – Another lap of the office
I check in with the team and get a status update on any dropped food and assorted floor gubbins. If there’s an opportunity to make a break for the kitchen and have a sniff round the bins, I’ll take it.
10.15am – Dan drops in and gives me a snacky
Turns out I am a “goody boy” after all – always helpful to get feedback. Constructive feedback is critical and shapes future barketing decisions
10.30am – Contribute to internal meeting
Cavalier King Charles Spaniels were bred to keep the laps of the aristocracy warm during chilly carriage rides. I like to play to my strengths and offer my services to anyone who’ll take them. If I ‘accidentally slip’ onto the velvet sofa beneath whoever’s lap I find myself on, so much the better.
11am – Morning walk
11.30am – Morning nap
Midday until around 2pm – The team eats lunch
Constant vigilance is required during the lunchtime period. The Transform team are messy eaters so pickings are often rich. Especially in Ronnie’s office…
12.15pm – Dan drops in and gives me another snacky
I am still a “goody boy”.
Dan is a good worker because his snacks offer variety, which demonstrates an adaptive, flexible mindset. He once stepped up from his regular biscuit offering to teriyaki beef, which warranted a raise and waggy tail.
1pm – Get picked up by Ellen
Never quite sure when in the day this is going to happen. But it will. At least once. I struggle a little bit but realise that it’s more for her than for me, so I relax into it. Got to give the humans what they want.
2pm – Dan drops in and gives me another snacky
Yep, still a “goody boy”.
3pm – Afternoon walk
I like to find something disgusting to eat or roll in when I am out and about in Mells, but it’s not always possible. I do what I can with what’s on offer. This is how I learned about resourcefulness.
3.30pm – Afternoon nap
4pm – Start the pre-dinner stare
Dinnertime is 5pm. I need to start the stare at least an hour in advance, or I might get forgotten. It’s never happened but I don’t want to take any chances with dinner. It’s the second most important meal of the day.
5.30pm – Drive home
Ready for a well-earned rest on the sofa. I like to put my paws up at the end of the day and enjoy a trashy Petflix series. Don’t judge me – being a Chief Barketing Officer is a tough job, but someone’s got to do it.
