Oli has been our office dog since he was a puppy and regularly guards the office from strangers and caretakers. He can be pretty annoying with his famous 'under the sofa' game and neediness, but we love his toothy grin and the office would be a much less interesting place without him. He will do anything for Helen and/or chicken and has been known to steal the odd breakfast roll from your desk when you're not looking.
