Mabel is officially a Border Terrier, although she wonders if someone has made an administrative error and if she is, in fact, human. Having learnt at an early age that she can help her human counterparts with her stress-reducing abilities, she is selflessly willing to lie for hours having her tummy tickled, or to curl up on people’s knees during meetings and have a snooze – all in the name of helping others.
When not in the office furthering her therapeutic career, she volunteers as a keen neighbourhood watch member – although the lure of sleep interferes quite regularly with this role. In her free time she can be found tirelessly pursuing her hobby of chasing squirrels and pigeons around the parks of London and beyond – actually catching one being a lifetime ambition.
She lives in Fulham with her food provider, Camilla.
