Time for my close up!

Tony our intern tells me that I really need to start putting more pictures on the blog, but thing is I just don’t like my picture being taken. Any time something is pointed at me I just feel so self conscious and start barking, plus that flashy thing on the camera is really unnerving.  Even when Mum tries to take a picture with her mobile phone instead of a camera (thinks she can trick me eh) I move my head to the side and look the other way, so you just get a side view. Though I don’t have a bad profile  (I put that down to my handsome  features) Tony says everyone wants to see my face and my array of expressions. I can be very animated which apparently makes you humans laugh.

 Apart from being a bit camera-shy, I think I am developing well in my role and gaining the skills required to operate an effective security department at Roots HR. I can shake hands with visitors and sit in chairs when I have security department meetings.  However I must buy some good quality dog biscuits and water bowls for the next meeting.  I can also celebrate when we gain a new client by doing a high 5! And I can chase my tail but we haven’t found a use for that skill in the office yet. You should see me drink from my water bowl after my walk into the office or a really good tail-chasing session. I drink with a rhythmic slurping for about 3 minutes without taking a breath and my name tags bangs against the side of the bowl.  Mum says it makes a sound like a San Francisco tram. Apparently that’s a great source of human entertainment.

In the meantime, here are some photos of me practicing sitting at a table in readiness for office meetings. it just happens to be a dining table and these photos capture my sequence of expressions when I see a plate of food pass me by.


The name is kins… Buddykins

That introduction doesn’t sound very professional or James Bond-esque does it?

When going for walks in the park, I must maintain a certain image as a professional office dog, you know. Therefore being called Buddykins in front of other dogs in the park is a professional faux pas, plus no good for park cred either!

My dog and human colleagues won’t be able to take me seriously in security matters. “Budster” however or “The Budster” really does make a statement and creates an image of a cool, modern dog.  This is a point I will raise, so that it doesn’t happen in front of clients; surely this is something that HR Consultants should know?
