Chuffy Hamilton, Security (kind-of…) & Mascot
Chuffy, Nicky’s beloved Cavapoo dog, joined H & H in June 2020, aged six months. Since then, he has made his presence felt and is now an integral part of the team. However, it’s not always plain sailing. He can suddenly start barking at nothing and gets upset when Nicky has to pop out on a job (he cries by the door until she returns!). He also gets a lot of wool-felt (used for padding seats) stuck to his nose and, unfortunately, gets trodden on by Erica regularly (she doesn’t see or hear him under her feet until it’s too late!). But he is much loved and H & H couldn’t do without him.
“I have really enjoyed my time here so far. It can get a bit dull sometimes when everyone’s beavering away on commissions, but I manage to occupy my time by chewing on things lying around (by the way, if you see any old socks scattered around the workshop, they’re mine so hands off!). I do miss Nicky when she disappears on a job, but she always comes back (phew!). I’m very happy here (although I wish Erica would not treading on me!) and plan to be around for a long time to come.”
