LUCILLE B.DERP - QUEEN OF SPADE

Born to a race track in Daytona Beach, Florida, this fabulous greyhound sprinted to a mediocre record under the name 'Queen of Spade'. With only one win and a banged up leg after twelve races she graciously retired from the track at the age of 2. She was elated to find a home in Nova Scotia with Geoff and Karen. Now living under the code name Lucille she spends her time laying in the sun, monitoring the neighborhood from her window and fending off squirrels from the back yard. She is a terrible worker and only motivated by carrots.  Being not a fan of hard work, nor the rain, you'll never see her on the job site, but rest assured, while our team is hard at work for you, she's at home, napping. She truly is the Queen of Spade.

CHARLIE M.DERP  - CHOMPITTO

Charlie Charles or Chompitto, is a cunning little 5-year old Whippet. Geoff and Karen hired him for his good looks and charming attitude, adopting him as the newest member of the Spade team in December 2020. Charlie prefers to be tucked in for his naps, loves treats from the garden and will chase after anything that squeaks. His nimble feet are on display when playing catch-me-if-you-can with Lucille in the backyard. Charlie has a horrible work ethic - a very short attention span together with a severe case of FOMO (fear of missing out) means he is reluctant to stay on task. Wherever Karen is, that's where you'll find Charlie!
