Charlie and the Postman

Charlie has a love-hate relationship with the postman.

Our mail carrier has gone to great lengths to curry Charlie's favor. When a package is handed in, it's usually accompanied by a treat or two. And Charlie sometimes barges outside to be fed extras.

In fact once, when we were gone for the daily mail delivery, we returned home to find a package with the requisite treat on top.

Still, every morning when he hears the familiar *snap* of the mail slot, Charlie launches into fiercely protective barking. You'd think he'd at least not want to scare the treats away!

Hey Charlie, that's one nice post man!! Do you like him better now??

That corn eating is really fun, would you like to be tagged?? Ok, I'm adding you to my list anyway since I know Chiyo is away for 2 weeks!!

Love nibbles,
Miss Sunshade

Hey Charlie,

Poor Mr Postman - you need to give him a break, afterall - he brings you treats :-) I love that top picture of you - you have such a wonderful colour.

Love
