British high-society magazine Tatler is mourning its beloved office dog, Alan, which died in a revolving-door accident.

Tatler said the long-haired miniature dachshund - a well-known industry figure with his own Twitter account @TatlerAlan - was killed in an accident at Vogue House, the London headquarters of magazine publisher Conde Nast.

The cute dog was reportedly being walked by the office intern when it became trapped in the revolving doors. The dog is believed to have become distracted by a passing jogger when it decided to make a run for it.
