by the subsitute mail lady!! yesterday as the mail lady was getting in the truck and leaving i took peanut out to go pee he didnt even see her bark growl or anything. today she wouldnt come to my house i had to go out to give her the mail and she yelled at me. she told me next time she is in the neighborhood i better not have my dog out until she is completely gone out of the neighboorhood. i was polite to her i just told her he has never left the yard before but next time i know shes in the neighborhood i will watch before i let my dog out to pee she shoved the mail in my hand and took off.

i could see if he did something to her but he didnt and he has been really good with geroge our normal mailman hes been out peeing at the time he came to my house and nothing from peanut and no complaints from george.

i felt like calling the post office to complain about the rudeness of the mail lady but thought if i did so i might bring hell to myself. anyways i just wanted to vent

I would call and complain. That was really rude and bad customer service.

We had a mail person mace a whole litter of 6 week old puppies on our street as well as our dog.

There was no reason for her to go off on you like that.I might would call and complain too.
I'm kinda spiteful though.I think if it was me and I saw her coming I would take Pretty Girl out right then on purpose to use the bathroom.On a leash of course.Is your mail box by the road or on your house?If you are in your yard and the mail box is by the road,she can't tell you that you can't have your dog out there on a leash using the bathroom.

my mailbox is next to my house. she had already passed all the houses and was getting in her truck to leave when he went out to pee i didnt see any harm in it and he didnt even notice her. (she had her truck parked across the street from my house). my worry if i complained is one not getting my mail delivered and two can she complain to the county about Peanut? he is licensed and current on rabies. i just dont want to do anything to chance him

Yeah I can see why you would be worried about it.Hmmm.I'm not sure.
It's a good thing that she's not your regular mailman.That would suck having to deal with her day in and day out.

As long as APBT's are legal. She has nothing to complain about. If she doesn't give you your mail you can complain about that too. She shouldn't be a mail person if she can't deal with people and animals appropriately.

we do not have BSL in my area so hes allowed to be here and he is UTD with the county. If I have anymore issues with her I think I may complain. I am not the type to do that (I am a shy easy going person) but seriously I was offened.

no there is no fence. I think I will see if she comes back anymore and if anything happens with my mail delivery because of this.

if Peanut wasn't on leash she might be able to complain, but i don't see how she could, really if he didn't even LOOK at her. lady is just being a grumpy biznatch, i would complain.

Nope...in myopinion you should shut up and take your lumps.
If the ost office finds out you have a "dangerous breed on the loose" they can deny you mail delivery and make you out to be a low life to your neighbors.
This is something you just have to accept owning a pit bull.

see that is my other thing i thought about this and thats why i didnt call but she was in the truck leaving so i didnt see a problem with my dog going out to pee since he had to hold it while she was walking the neighborhood. just the way she approached it was what bothered me she could have been nice my dog didnt see her nothing happened she didnt even have contact with him. she could have talked to me instead of yell at me and try passing my house. just because i have a dog let alone a pitbull doesnt mean she couldnt have just had a conversation with me. i do understand post office workers being scared of dogs but geeze mean. i was polite to her and told her i would keep an eye out especially while she is our subsitute mail person.

If she did that to me I would make sure I was outside with Enzo everyday waiting for her to come with my mail. I dont take **** from anyone when it comes to people talking down on Enzo. If he didnt do anything wrong she has nothing on you

no all he did was come out pee on my tree and come back in the house
Dont let it bother you if he didnt do anything. I had this one lady almost jump of the sidewalk into traffic because she saw Enzo walking on the sidewalk. I laughed at her and said "he is only a puppy". I'm just a complete d*** when it comes to stuff like that and will make your life hell LOL

Maybe she has had a bad experience before and just holds a grudge
