Canada Mail carrier who dislikes dogs

Dear Ms. Scolaro,

I am writing to ask you to return Brindi to her owner, Francesca Rogier.

I am not a dog person. In fact I am always wary of dogs. I am not wary of Brindi. As a postal employee collecting customer signatures on signature-required items, I’ve gone to Francesca’s door on many occasions, knocked on it loudly, gone in, called out, and walked right back out again, without hearing any response - only to find out later she and her dog were resting upstairs the whole time! Brindi had never stirred from her side.

There are people whose houses I will not go to in that community. I know whose house I can go to and not be in fear. I see their dogs are loose all the time, and I cannot be sure how they will behave. The other day a loose Rottweiler charged at my car while I was pulling in a driveway. It was in my face before I could shut the window. No owner was in sight, and nobody came when I repeatedly hit the horn.

I know for certain that Brindi will never bite me. I didn’t know what that dog was going to do, and I wasn’t taking any chances. I refused postal delivery to that home, as I do anywhere I fear for my safety. I have never felt any fear around Brindi.

Someone has made a terrible mistake here. Brindi should be sent back home right away.
