With a loud Hawaiian shirt and a bushy black moustache, Humphrey makes a pretty dashing canine version of Tom Selleck's Magnum PI.

Humphrey (a 2-year-old pug) and Winston (a three-and-a-half-year old Griffon) are brothers from different mothers, but get along like a house on fire.

Winston is often mistaken for the Star Wars wookie Chewbacca at our local dog park, and Humphrey (or Humps, as he's affectionately known) is a dead ringer for Tom Selleck's Hawaiian-shirt sporting detective Magnum P.I, hence the 80s-inpsired outfits.

These wee guys are extremely playful and and have some interesting quirks: Humps is obsessed with chewing bare feet so walking around without shoes can be a bit risky.

He also can't get enough of hedgehogs (he squeals like a schoolkid when he finds one in the backyard). And Winston is obsessed with chasing and biting reflections on the floor and wall. What a pair of weirdos!

These designer mutts are lucky enough to be able to come to work with me once a week. They love going for their daily walk and hanging out with their furry mates at doggie daycare.

A long time ago, in a galaxy, fur, fur away... Winston  in his Chewbacca cosutme.

They also spend one day each week with their cousin, Scooby (an 11-year-old border terrier). Their won't eat raw dog meat and turn their noses up at certain brands of dog biscuit because they're simply ridiculously fussy and used to living 'the good life'.

I look forward to waking up to these guys every morning. They make my life complete.
