BELLA & HAZEL
Feelgood Managers

Although far and away the youngest of our team, Bella and Hazel have rapidly risen to management. They have quickly achieved leadership roles within the team, firmly giving orders to be fed or taken for a walk with a simple howl or surreptitious chew on an available shoe. They have appointed themselves as human resource managers, regularly enforcing work breaks for a beneficial walk across the fields. Even procurement interests them. They take great pleasure in presenting their acquisitions to the team - the most recent being a carefully chewed television remote control. Although their contributions are not always appreciated, their joyful manner always wins the team over.
