Tiny Six-Inch Doggie Terrorizes Wimpy British Postal Worker

By Robert Paul Reyes

"She is ankle-height and looks cute -- but Peggy the tiny Yorkshire terrier is deemed so ferocious by Britain`s Royal Mail that it has halted postal deliveries to the entire street where she lives.

Dubbed the `Beast of Dorset Gardens` after the street`s name, the 15-centimetre (six-inch) pooch is accused of terrorising postmen and neighbours alike in the central English city of Northampton.

The Royal Mail said in a letter to residents that it had halted deliveries to the street since December 7 after Peggy had attacked a postman."


The American postman is a hardy breed: "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds."

But their British counterparts are bloody wussies who tremble at the sight of a barking six-inch pooch. Oprah Winfrey always belches after she wolfs down a dozen Big Macs, and little dogs always bark when a stranger is approaching. Tiny canines are all bark and no bite, and the bloody mail carrier should man up and not wet his drawers at the sight of the little dog.

The dog`s owner aren`t getting any support from their neighbors, they aren`t thrilled about making a 14-mile journey to pick up their mail.

Why doesn`t the owner simply keep the Munchkin doggie inside the house when the gonads-challenged mailman make his rounds?
