Office dog


Basil is a black lab. Born in middle of 2021 and growing at an exponential rate. I fear by end of 2023 he will need no introduction, as he will roam the streets in the style of Godzilla. Dogzilla? It could be that I am shrinking… I haven’t ruled that out.

Basil’s habits include stealing (uncooked) potatoes. He is a keen swimmer, enjoys walks in the sunshine. He also loves cat food and enjoys walks in the drizzle. As well as playing tug of war with anything from toys to bank cheques, he enjoys walks in torrential rain. His dislikes don’t exist. He celebrates everything in life. A leaf blowing in the wind, long naps but especially walking with his human, Anna.

It may be a surprise that one of Basil’s favourite clients is the Book Trust  – read more about our work with them here.
