Because sports events are currently on hold, Andrew Cotter, BBC broadcaster, found himself with a lot of extra time in his hands. That only means one thing, Andrew gets to be with his two Labradors, Olive and Mabel, more. However, recently, the fur dad came to the point when he had to have a tough conversation with them.
For the sake of transparency, Andrew documented the Zoom meeting that he had with his two “employees” in a video. He even posted the clip on his Twitter account for everyone to see. The agenda? Deliver the annual report on Olive and Mabel’s performances.

At the start of the Zoom meeting, Andrew was seen together with two empty boxes. These were where the two dogs should be. Olive joined the meeting first while Mabel followed a moment later.
According to Andrew, Olive, and Mabel ruined the sofas. They had also never caught a single squirrel out of the 913 that they chased, which means no good return. Based on Andrew’s feedback and the dogs’ behavior during the video conference, Olive was the employee of the month. She will receive a bonus for that.
Meanwhile, Mabel needs to make some improvements. At first, she had technical difficulties, and when she finally got to join the meeting, she seemed a little distracted. Andrew called her out and said that Mabel’s lack of focus is among the things that they need to address.

At one point, Mabel disappeared and popped back on the screen, holding her squeaky toy. She fell asleep while Andrew was talking to her and logged off of the call without proper notice too. Because of that, Andrew got upset and said that they should definitely sack Mabel.
At the start of the meeting, Andrew assured that neither of his dogs would be furloughed while there is a crisis. So, hopefully, Mabel will do better so she could keep her job. Of course, this is all for fun. As Andrew said, he creates the videos out of boredom.
