Dog Delivers Mail to Owner
CARPIO, N.D. (July 13) - Toby arrives at the post office here at 9:30 every morning, ready to deliver the mail, even though he's barred from coming inside.
The 12-year-old golden retriever has been delivering mail to his owner, Brad Sullivan, for the past two years. He makes the three-block trek to the post office with Gordon Lewis, Sullivan's neighbor.
Toby waits patiently outside until Lewis puts the Sullivans' mail in a green pouch around his neck for the short trip home.
"He's just crazy to come and get the mail," Lewis said. "He usually waits outside, then takes off when I put the pouch back on him."
Sullivan said his mother, Connie, was hospitalized a couple of years ago and Sullivan was laid up from a vehicle accident, so he started sending Toby with Lewis to get the mail.
"We put that pouch on him and he's a different dog," Sullivan said. "It's like it's something important for him to do.
Connie Sullivan said she gives Toby a treat when he gets back. And Carpio Postmaster Kevin Nissen said Toby carries on the Postal Service tradition of getting the mail out on time.
