It’s time for our second instalment of how our lawyers make the most of their work-life balance with their pets, following on from last weeks post.
National Pet Month is an annual event that aims to promote responsible pet ownership and raise awareness of the value and contribution to society that working and companion animals bring.
National Pet Month aims to:
- Promote responsible pet ownership
- Raise awareness of the benefits of pets for people and vice versa.
- Increase awareness of the services available from professionals who work with animals
- Raise awareness of the role, value and contribution to society of working companion animals
In support, we have contacted our consultants to talk to us about their pets and how they fit into their lives.
Zoe Melville-Harris – Princess Flash
Princess Flash is Zoe’s 24-year-old horse. This lovely girl gives Zoe the perfect excuse to escape her desk. When asked to pose for a picture, she produced this cheeky face!
Teresa Clarke – Ellie
Ellie is a three-year-old Labrador belonging to Teresa. Ellie is high energy, highly sensitive and was initially a nightmare! After hours of learning dog psychology and how to empty her stress bucket, she is now pretty much perfect. Working as a consultant at Setfords has allowed Teresa to give Ellie the time and patience necessary to become a calm and happy family member and to enjoy walks and activities with her, which would not have been possible otherwise.
Tracey O’Dwyer – Ziggy, Star and Milly
Tracey has two Burmese cats; Ziggy & Star who are about 15/16 months old and love a tummy rub. She also has another cat called Milly, whom they refer to as “The Evil One”. Tracey inherited Milly from her late mother who got her as a rescue.
Hannen Beith – Thelma Beith and Louis
Thelma Beith is a real extrovert. She loves chatting, especially when Hannen is on the phone and to the birds through the window. She is a skilled ball dribbler and chases a paper ball around the floor, with panache and energy, especially after a snack of cat nip.
