Chief Snack Inspector

Apple Thief
Betty is very serious about her job, in three years she hasn’t once failed to inspect a snack thats entered the office.

A gentle soul and calming influence, Betty often sits in with clients helping them through difficult times… and relieving them of a snack or three.

Despite agreeing to obtain a legal qualification as part of her employment, Betty still knows very little about the Law. But we love her.

Happiness Officer

Giraffe on Skates
Soda is our youngest team member and enjoys:

  • being let out, just to want to come back in
  • catching crickets
  • beef liver treats
  • chewing anything but a chew toy
  • and looking for Betty

Soda also has no Legal qualification or skills and shows very little promise to ever obtain either.

But she is very good at her job nonetheless.
