Reggie

Reggie is responsible for security and can often be seen patrolling the premises.

 

Although he is a softie, Reggie takes his job very seriously and can be very assertive when unhappy about somebody misbehaving.

 

“ I bark at the bad people first to give them a chance to behave. If they do not stop running then I like to catch them and give them a Reggie tickle. Bad people taste very good. Dad then says good boy Reggie and gives me a bone. This makes Reggie happy”

Head of Security
