Lily Marshall

Security Officer

I am a bit scruffy but I am very loveable and playful and always look out for my owners. I do get a bit jealous when my sister Lola gets stroked and often ‘move her aside’! I love meeting other dogs on my walks, enjoy spending time with my family and getting warm in front of a log fire. I love my cosy bed in the office and keeping my owners company.  My main role is letting people in the office know when somebody is at the door!

Lola Marshall

Security Officer

I am extremely affectionate and enjoy snuggling up for a lovely cuddle. I love my sister Lily but she does like to steal the limelight a bit sometimes. I enjoy my walks but my favourite pastime is sorting through the bins and finding scraps of delicious stale food! I like wandering around the office picking up a stroke here and there wherever I can.  When my sister is asleep I keep an ear out for visitors knocking at the door too!
