The resident dog at the St. Regis Aspen Resort in Colorado, the four-legged pup will be your new boss. If your application is successful, that is.

‘Fur butler’ duties include managing the hotel mascot’s day-to-day activities, including walks, greeting guests at the airport and even playdates.

You’ll also be tasked with running the resort’s Pet Programme, showing face at daily events and tending to the needs of other pets at the hotel.

Doesn’t necessarily sound like work to me.

Applicants should be fond of the snow and have a keen eye for photography and social media. Not to mention an undying love for canines, but that goes without saying really.

And if you’re wondering where the name Kitty came from, it’s in honour of another familiar St Regis figure - founder John Jacob Astor IV had a dog named Kitty too. So, it’s a tradition.

Check out the Facebook post for full details on how to apply.
