Fluffy employees of the month

The pets of the UK have put on their best office attire and are currently spending their days helping their humans work from home! We asked for submissions of what your fluffy companions have been doing to help over the last few weeks and we are completely overwhelmed with the response! It has been an absolute joy to go through all of the submissions - we hope it brings everyone as much happiness and laughter as it has for us.

We have awarded each pet with an extra special Lucy Can't Dance Award, from most floofiest to best work attire, because we believe that they all deserve to be celebrated!
Without further ado, in order of submission, the nations pets:

Bowie Mcfluffybutt

Name: Bowie McFluffybutt
Age: He will be 1 on April 25th
Breed: Corgi
Job role: Head of HR at Lucy Can’t Dance
Likes: Belly strokies, barking in the garden, playing fetch & Food
Dislikes: The evil hoover, mornings & plastic bags that move in the wind
Lockdown shenanigans: Someone wants to play fetch constantly! When I’m eating, when I’m weeing and when I’m trying to sew dresses. Bowie comes to work at Lucy can’t Dance every day so Having him around me 24/7 is normal. But working together at home is very different. He likes to try and demand attention 100% of the time. He hates it when I’m on a work video chat. It results with him running off with my things and me having to chase him round the garden....but thank god he’s with me otherwise I think I’d go crazy on my own and start talking to the plants.
