Otto hard at work. As usual.

MEMO

To: all AOA editors, contributors, participants

Re: office dog

Two years ago today Otto started his job as AOA's office dog. Please join us in warmly congratulating him on the anniversary.

otto_napping.jpgDuring the past two years Otto has grown (literally and figuratively) into the position. His originally modest job description now includes:

greeting visitors
twittering
US Postal Service liaison
summer replacement
document shredding
product testing
lunch monitor
holiday model

In addition, he's also enthusiastically served as AOA's goodwill ambassador.

Here's to many more years.

As a dog who shares Otto's ... work ethic, Bandit offers his heartiest congratulations on this milestone.

Cheers to Otto

You came *so* close to getting all of those slices of pizza from me. A pup after my own heart.

Congrats, Otto! What's the anniversary gift for two years on the job? Sausages and belly rubs?

His puppy picture is just ADORABLE! They grow up too fast.

Otto, thank you for your valuable contributions and years of service... or, should I say, GOOD BOY! Who's a good boy? YOU'RE a good boy!!!

On behalf of the loyal readers of FridayPuppy.com, we all wish Otto a warm bed, a tasty snack and lots of lovin' for his next two years and beyond; congrats Otto!!!

Will Otto be at the party?

And you forgot the most important job of all...just being so darned cute!

He looks like he needs a snuggle buddy...I'll bring my pug Lola by someday!

What a handsome boy! Congratulations, Otto, on two years of bringing the cute to AOA.

Congratulations Otto on a job well done for 2 years now. Couldn't ask for a more perfect office dog. Love ya baby dog!

Nice work, Otto! The site wouldn't be the same without you. My human sends hugs and ear scritches.

I ride every day to work, and also after work for exercise. I love the concept of being a person who happens to ride a bike. There's a level of bike riding, with the high performance gear and sleek clothing, that makes riding seem like its not for everyone. I try to avoid markers like that, and always wear regular clothing/shoes/backpack with dumpy-looking bike. One concession is bike gloves.

A year later I'm still using a bike to get around town -- here are a few thoughts about how that's worked out
