This Sweet Postman Writes Letters For Dog Who Loves Getting Mail

You’ve got mail!

Martin Studer is a postman (or “postie” as his Facebook page says) in Brisbane, Australia. Pippa is a Golden Retriever on his route, and she loves bringing mail to her family once Studer drops it off.

But what can Pippa deliver if there’s no mail that day? Rather than disappoint Pippa, Studer writes a letter to deliver so she won’t go without.

“Sometimes, Pippa comes out for the daily delivery but there’s no mail for her to collect. So I have to improvise, (below)” he wrote on Facebook.


“I love dogs,” Studer told Simplemost in a Facebook chat. “You can always tell what an owner is like by the way their dog acts.”

We asked him about how people could send Pippa mail, and he said “I checked with both the owner and with Austpost, and both have asked not to give it out for privacy.” Fair enough.

Pippa isn’t the only one who loves to deliver the mail. After all, “Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds!”
