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!
