What’s With the Dog?

What’s With the Dog?

We believe the Jack Russell terrier is a great totem for a positive work culture and an example of what innovations are possible given the right combination of a supportive community, passion, and the time and space to think.

 

At HATCH we want to help cultivate those sorts of cultures. So here’s the story…

During the Victorian era, more than 18,000 men were in the clergy, a large percentage of the population’s educated folk. The role was a good job for those with a university degree. It was generally that or the military and, during the agrarian height of Victorian England, clergy did well for themselves. Their pay was based on a percentage of output of the farmland their parish sat upon, which in most cases allowed for a very comfortable life.

The job was not too time consuming either, so beyond the general tending to the flock, most men of the cloth had a lot of time on their hands. Out of this environment of community, freedom, self-directed passion and contemplation sprang some of the most marvellous discoveries, inventions and innovations. Examples are numerous and include ideas ranging from the first submarine to Malthusian economics. We can also thank a member of the clergy for our furry friend, for it was none other than the Reverend Jack Russell of Devon who brought us his eponymous breed of man’s best friend.
