There are technically two shop dogs at Sunnyside, but Elroy has seniority. His more junior canine colleague Happy has been spending less time in the office since she suffered a bout of wanderlust that landed her in the slammer for a night. Elroy currently works 30 hours each week and has been coming in with his owner, bike mechanic Seth Fox, for about five years.

Name: Elroy

Age: Around 9 years old

Breed: Burmese mountain dog

Title: Head Shop Dog

Responsibilities: Assisting with bike test rides and making sure rugs don't fly away

Favorite part of the job: Getting treats from delivery people and customers

Least favorite part of the job: None

What would they do without you? I would be bored without a few days in the shop each week.
