Office dog

The final member of the team is Sika, our very own office dog. Bedlington whippets are capable of up to thirty-five miles per hour, but you will rarely encounter him hitting these heady speeds in the office. He is chiefly responsible for taking lengthy naps and whilst he may not be the most productive member of the team, he certainly succeeds in keeping up morale with aplomb!
