Whether it’s pedigree pups or mangy mutts, decorators’ dogs are valued members of staff at embroidery and print shops from Barking to Furness! Meet Angel and Loki from BS Embroidery Plus in Liskeard, Cornwall

Full names: Angel and Loki

Breeds: Angel is a shih tzu/poodle cross and Loki is a terrier cross. Both are rescue dogs.

Ages: Angel is two, Loki is one.

Time at company: Angel has been with the company for 18 months, Loki has clocked up nine months.

Job titles: Angel is security and office supervisor; Loki is chief recycling officer and motivational speaker.

Special skills: Angel is super speedy! She can get from the embroidery machines upstairs to the office downstairs before you finish saying “Treat time”. Loki’s special skills are making everyone smile and teleportation! We have no idea how he does it, but one second he’s there, then he’s not. He’ll be next to you, then you blink and he’s clear across the other side of the factory.

Favourite colours: Angel likes lots of colours. We asked her to pick her favourite and she chose lilac, Pantone 110c, because it’s the same colour as her first toy. Loki’s favourite colour is orange, Pantone 1665c, because we use it in our logo – he knows when he sees that colour it’s time to go to work and he loves being at work.
