Happy Howl-o-ween 2017!

This year, Bailey wanted to dress up as one of her heroes: a UPS delivery driver!

That’s right, I said one of her heroes. I know most dogs bark at deliverymen and women, and Bailey is no exception – she’s scared off more than one mailman in her day. (So embarrassing…)

But why do dogs bark at deliverymen? (The perennial question, right?) Many canine specialists say it’s a territorial thing, and that’s probably true – but I think, deep down, Bailey is jealous. I mean, think about it: this is a person who gets to drive all over town, meet a bunch of different people, see lots of different homes & businesses, and handle packages that come from every corner of the world (and you know they have all kinds of interesting smells!).

So this year, she’s ready to get out there – rain or shine, snow sleet or hail – and smell alllllllll the people & packages!


Adan the deliveryman took a minute during his route to show her the ropes!

And then we headed to the Kensington UPS Store, for a bit more hands-on training… (or should I say paws-on?)

Come on – who wouldn’t want to get a delivery from this face?!

Bailey might struggle getting used to the uniform, though. The hat in particular.

The employees (Fred & Al) got a kick out of her costume!

But they let her behind the counter to “help” mail packages!

Look at all those boxes – and that huge smile. Bailey can’t WAIT to deliver them all!

And on a slow delivery day, maybe she’ll just help you make copies and check your mailbox.

So now that she has an appreciation for how hard their jobs are, perhaps Bailey won’t bark at the next UPS deliveryman who stops at our house? Just maybe? We’ll have to wait and see if she acts like a trick or a treat next time… :)


Huge thanks to Bailey’s new friends Adan, Fred & Al! (She loves each of you!)
