Andy & Rufus & Dixie
From the very beginning, the canine team at optimum has played a very important role.
Rufus Dessar heads up the welcome committee greeting every visitor with his friendly smile, he also takes his role as chief food taster very seriously and would never want us to eat anything before he has checked it …. the only problem is when he does check we don’t get any!
Rufus is a great source of comfort during times of stress and as a very strong swimmer would be sure to save us if there was a flood … or should that be would be sure to save his ball!!
Andrew Dessar (Andy to his friends ) holds the senior position and has been in his role as chief of security for no less than sixteen years keeping us all safe and warding off any intruders … a little more difficult in recent days as he is now totally deaf and almost blind, he can of course still lick any intruder to death, his teeth are not up to much these days as he only has three left!
The newcomer and baby to the team brings a feminine feel to the trio now, recently joining us from a local dog shelter, Dixie Dessar brings new excitement however she is in serious training with Andy to pick up the baton as head of security as he will soon retire from duty….
Together they bring a happiness to the rest of us making sure that even in times of stress we have something to smile about.
