We get a lot of questions about Otis on our label. Yes he is our prized Boston Terrier and Mascot.
When he is not off checking out a concert or at a photo shoot he spends his days working with us in the jalapeño fields or sleeping on the couch. All this fame takes a lot out of the little guy,so if you call the office and hear snoring in the background yes that will be Otis enjoying a Siesta!
