Origin of one-man-and-a-dog

  • The expression became current in the late 1970's and early 1980's after a popular British technical news weekly ran a cartoon strip called "One Man and a Dog - the story of a small systems house", about a company doing business under the name "O.M.A.A.D." ("Organization Methods Analysis and Design"), the office being inhabited only by the proprietor and his dog.
