Otter the Shih Tzu even has a postal worker’s personality

You’ve got mail!

How nice would those words be coming from Otter, a friendly 2-year-old Shih Tzu?

Sindie Schoonover, Otter’s “grandma,” took this picture last Halloween when she dressed up her grand-pooch as a doggie mail deliverer. Her son-in-law is an actual USPS worker, and Otter felt right at home in his dad’s roving office.

“Otter loved it,” Schoonover says. “He loved being on the route and it was like he was posing for the pictures.”

The sweet-natured Shih Tzu didn’t actually distribute the mail, though, so there weren’t any paw prints on envelopes that Halloween. “That would probably be illegal,” Schoonover says.

Still, if Otter were to have a career in anything, it would probably be with the postal service. “He’s got a mailman’s personality,” Schoonover says. “He’s very personable.”
