    Naughty dogs

    Dogs steal mail carrier's lunch, then their apology note goes viral.
    Christina Capatides - July 7, 2018



    In June, Carol Jordan, who owns a five-acre farm in Isle of Wight, Virginia, stopped at her mailbox and discovered a handwritten note there from the woman who delivers her family's mail.


    "Our immediate thought was, 'What did the boys do now?'" she told CBS News.


    "The boys" in question are Bear and Bull, Jordan's 6-year-old black Labrador/mastiffs, which she and her husband rescued from a high kill shelter in North Carolina as puppies. Bear and Bull are brothers from the same litter, though Jordan notes that Bull -- the smaller one with the white spot on his chest -- is the ringleader when it comes to getting into trouble.

    In this instance, however, it turns out the boys actually weren't in trouble. On the contrary, the neighborhood's friendly letter carrier actually left the family a note out of concern for the dogs' well-being.


    It read: "Hey! I drove up to deliver a package and both of the dogs crawled in my truck. They got into my lunch and ate an egg and some carrots and pumpkin seeds. I don't know if that will upset their tummies, just FYI!"


    "Upon reading it, we realized the note was left because she was concerned" rather than angry, Jordan recalls.


    "We would never have known," she continues. "They always look guilty of something!"


    The only evidence of the crime? Two small carrots in the grass next to the driveway, where the dogs had spit out the vegetables among their loot.


    Though the letter carrier seemingly wasn't holding a grudge, the dogs had undeniably misbehaved. So their owners decided to "shame them on Facebook." Jordan took a picture of the pair looking guilty and created a photo composite with the image of the mail carrier's note. The post -- complete with a caption that read, "Wall of shame #weoweyoulunch" -- quickly went viral.


    "We've heard from people in Denmark, Australia and New Zealand that have seen the post," she tells CBS News. "Most people thank us for making them laugh. A lot of folks have made comments along the lines of 'that's like my dog' or they tag someone whose dog would act like that."

    To make up for the pups' mischief, Jordan then purchased a $20 Subway gift card and left it at the post office for their carrier, along with a handwritten note of apology from the boys.


    "Sorry we ate your lunch," read the note. "Thank you for sharing... P.S. Our humans said thank you for leaving a note. We didn't like the note, we got in trouble."

    LOL. To many dogs any food they 'find' is forfeit. If you wanted it, you should have buried it.

    My person called this to my attention and said I could again use his screen name and password if I wanted.

    I oppose this craze of "shaming" Canine-Americans. It is not the Canine-Americans' fault that their humans were lax in their schooling. If anything the humans should be wearing signs that state, "I failed to adequately train the living creature I am supposed to be responsible for"

    Put the blame where it belongs!
