Buddy joined Tim Fleming Associates in 2007 as a Maltese/Bichon Frise cross of the canine variety.  He is primarily charged with the onerous task of being the office mascot. Although he has no accountancy qualifications his time-keeping skills are legendary and he is always on time for walkies and munchies. Buddy’s main duties include meeting and greeting (sniffing) all visitors to the office. Unlike other team members, he is always readily available for cuddles, no appointment necessary.
