Does Your Dog Bring You The Mail?
August 3, 2016 2:44pm CST
Another reason I loved my old buddy Tristan. He loved bringing in the mail. To be fair, I had to actually go get the mail, as our mailbox is on the street. He knew how to open the fence, but not the mailbox. Also he was not allowed in the front yard by himself. People were scared of him and he liked to keep them being scared of him. Our mail lady was never scared of him and sure she would have no problem giving him the mail. That is what I did when I would get the mail. Just put the mail over the fence. He would jump up, grab it and run to take it to my sister. It took him a few times to understand what needed to be done, but eventually he knew what I wanted him to do. He really loved bringing in the mail. Tristan is the dog on the left with the crumpled ear. The one on the right is Kai who refuses to take in the mail. She just drops it on the floor. Then, there is Brooklyn, some of you may know about her and her ball. Does anyone else have a dog that likes to bring in the mail?

I hear you, and also know the feeling. She looks pretty gentle to me, but people see the size and often take excitement for aggressive behavior. That is what I always worry about with Kai. In the dry river bed, I can let them run off leash, but there is still people down there. She scared the crap out of a man and his dog because how excited she gets.He eventually saw how nice and gentle she was.
