FOUR legged friends have been keeping staff company at a Hampshire company today.

Unusual dogs including miniature schnauzers, a labradoodle and a springer spaniel are among those putting a smile on peoples' faces at Red Funnel for Bring Your Dog To Work Day.

Last year the company, which described itself as a dog-friendly ferry operator, raised 350,000 for Isle of Wight charity Ability Dogs for Young People.

Chief executive Kevin George said: "“Many of our team own dogs and consider them to be a member of the family. We appreciated that many of our customers feel the same way, so we’re happy to help make their journey as easy and comfortable as possible.

"This includes allowing dogs to travel for free across our entire fleet and providing a pet lounge on board our vehicle ferries.

“Our fleet and terminal staff enjoy welcoming dogs at Red Funnel on a daily basis, so it’s great for our support office team to be able to do the same for the day.”
