Name: Winston May
Breed : Dachshund
Job title: Managing director
Shop: mooch gifts & home, Bewdley and Stourport
Career history: I entered the retail trade at the very young age of 16 weeks so this is all I know, but within a short time I have progressed to the position where I find myself today.
Favourite thing about being the ’shop’ dog?
The best thing is I get to keep an eye on my dad all day as I would only cry if left at home all day. I enjoy meeting the many ‘moochers’ who come in the shops; lots of them ask for me by name. Since I appeared in many of the mooch LIVE Facebook shows during lockdown I have gathered quite a following of fans.
Where can you be found when in the shop?
I can normally be found behind the counter unless I have to sign for any deliveries when I normally rush around from behind the counter and say hello to the driver.
The only treats I will eat (apart from hooman food) are carrot and chicken sticks, they are delicious.
Favourite place for a walk?
As long as it’s dry, my favourite walk is around Trimpley Reservoir near Bewdley.
