Elsa – the University of Canterbury (UC) Liaison team office dog – has entered the Top Office Dog competition run by Frog Recruitment on Instagram.
Entries close today, with the judges decision expected on 18 September. You can see her entry here – she already has more than 100 likes.
Elsa is a 7 year old re-homed greyhound, who was adopted through Hounds4Homes by UC’s Manager Future Students, Denise Hall.
On her first day at work, she ate a member of the team’s lunch and hid under the desk, but 18 months down the track she has progressed to become a chilled-out member of the team, who relaxes in her office bed for much of the day, but always joins the team for morning and afternoon tea breaks.
She also wanders round the office periodically during the day, visiting different staff at their desks to enjoy a stress-reducing pat. Highlights of her office career include wearing her official mascot jacket at Orientation Day, when she helps welcome new students, as well as contributing to the general health and wellbeing of UC staff and students. #nztopdog#ucnow
