Tell us about Siena, and how she came into your life
When I got my job at dog-friendly Malin+Goetz, it was finally my chance to rescue a pup! My mum is from Italy, where there are still lots of dogs looking for homes. Siena was part of surprise litter from a farm in Tuscany, which is how she got her name (the farm was close to the city of Siena).
How does your Siena fit into your general working day?
I love taking her on the tube and having our morning commute together. She’s been a shop-girl all her life and enjoys meeting our customers and their dogs in store. All the store staff are her aunties and uncles, having a dog at work is so beneficial for the team!
When you’re not working, where do you and Siena like to hang out?
I really cherish Greenwich Park. It’s got lots of texture, plenty squirrels for her to chase and a nice view to us humans to enjoy.
What essentials do you always have on you when heading out for a dog walk, and what do you carry them in?
My kintails collar and leash is a must, alongside bio-degradable poop bags.
What adventures do you and Siena have planned for the rest of the year?
It’s been a hell of a year so we’re taking it pretty easy. During lockdown we loved walking along Bankside as Siena can be off the leash for the whole time, the small beach by the Tate is like going a mini holiday! I think for the rest of the year we’ll continue to discover London by foot and paw!
