BLIND DOG WORKS AT A MAIL OFFICE - “The black labrador with the green Seahawk collar carries a clipboard to customers to sign for packages.”
Molly, a ten-year-old Black Labrador, has been working at her owner’s shipping and mail business, “Goin’ Postal,” by carrying things to customers and filing packages. Molly went blind recently, but still manages to help out around the office in Centralia, Washington. Read more from Komo News:
Taylor says business slows down on Molly’s day off: “because the customers know she’s not here.”
The black labrador with the green Seahawk collar carries a clipboard to customers to sign for packages. Carrying a large envelope labeled Molly’s Mail, she heads with her owner to pick up the morning mail at home and at work.
She used to take customer’s large FedEx and UPS envelopes and set them on the back shelf by herself. Now she needs the guidance of her owner.
"She has to have her guide dad help her along the way," Taylor joked.
Four years ago, Molly lost sight in one eye and just 4 months ago Tyler’s 10-year-old dog went blind from Glaucoma.
"I really thought her going blind was gonna be very traumatic for her and I honestly think she’s handled it better than I have," says her owner.
Molly bumps her head and hugs the walls but still delivers a package to the back shelf for customer Debra Steele.
"It’s really a thrill," she said. "She’s just such a sweet thing and to know that she can’t even see but is so dedicated to what she’s always done is kind of inspiring."
Taylor is now scent training Molly. He’s placed scented tabs on walls and cabinets marking the obstacles so Molly won’t bump into them. And he’s scented track along the shipping center’s carpet to help Molly’s nose sniff out her next step.
Molly sounds like a great employee. Best of luck to her. Click here for the full story and a news video. (Screenshot from Komo News video)
