"Woohoo!! The UPS man is here!"Let's face it...whether you're a city merchant awaiting a big delivery of goods, or a ruralite who lives 100 miles from the nearest department store, everyone gets excited when the big brown truck rumbles up the driveway. You don't have to be a kid to appreciate the suspense of what's in today's brown box.
Dogs share this excitement. While some fear the rumbling, high-profile rig and the stranger in a brown uniform (who's usually carrying something), others can't wait to greet the driver with wild barking and wagging.
Astute delivery people know that dogs go with the territory, and that it's in their best interest to make friends with them. That's why so many of them carry a pocketful of dog biscuits to distribute among your noisy, teeming pack when they step out of their trucks.
Get your festive holiday bag o' treats ready and hand it to your UPS guy the next time Sparky alerts you that he's rumbling up the driveway. He and Sparky will both appreciate it!
