We're down to just four pups!
Muse Mutt Madness 2014 (our annual quest to find the ultimate office dog) is underway. We put together a bracket featuring 32 of the most adorable dogs (and one cat!) you'll ever see, and are letting you decide which of these canine co-workers should be crowned as the top dog.
Join in the fun! Learn more about the pups (and their offices), and cast your fourth round votes below. (Voting closes Friday, April 4, 2014 at 6 PM ET.)
Matchup 1: Vern vs. Clementine
Vern From Bitly: 2-Year-Old Mutt, Rescued From Puerto Rico
Vern, Bitly's Pawgress Manager, spends her working days making sure everyone drops food on the ground, gives her belly rubs, and knows when the mailman arrives. She revels in giving Chauncey the Pufferfish a run for his money as the official Bitly mascot. Very attached to her mom, the office manager, she's always underfoot (unless, of course, someone is eating in the kitchen).
Clementine From SeatGeek: 18-Month-Old Miniature Long Haired Dachsund
Every morning at SeatGeek, team members stand up in a circle and go over what they'll be working on that day. Joining all two-legged members of the team is four-legged Coder-in-Chief, Clementine! Clementine is an office staple in SeatGeek's NYC headquarters, always eager to join in meetings and provide visitors' ankles with a warm (and wet) puppy smooch upon arrival. The only time Clementine isn't allowed to roam free is during SeatGeek's weekly team lunch—because no one can resist sharing bits of their meals with her under the table!
Matchup 2: Homer vs. Goose
Homer From Basis: 1-Year-Old American Labrador
Homer is the Chief Affection Officer for Basis, heading up Canine Resources. Homer ensures everyone on the Basis team gets an adequate dose of playfulness, stress relief, and 70 pounds of love and cuteness every day. With his Labrador sports edition physique, he motivates folks to chase after him when he's successfully gone dumpster diving for snacks. When he's not exercising, he seeks affection by sleeping on laps. Homer's always sought elected office, so please vote for him in this dog-election!
Goose From onefinestay: 2-Year-Old Sealyham Terrier
onefinestay expects that its team members are expert relationship-builders, so it comes as no surprise that Goose is one of the top dogs on the team. Having met over a thousand new hosts and pawed her way around London's mansions and mewses, she never fails to charm (unless you're a cat, squirrel, or anything that lives in a pond).
As Social Media and Community Manager, Brooke is intrigued by (okay, obsessed with) all things social. She has been Musing since right after she graduated from Smith College, beginning first as an intern. When Brooke isn’t conjuring up new Tweets, she can be found trying out new foods, wishing she had a Boston Terrier, and Instagramming. Say hi on Twitter @beetorr.More from this Author
