The following appears on the internet today:

CLARKSBURG, W.Va. — Cozmo the Jack Russell terrier has done what neither rain, sleet nor the gloom of night has been able to do — keep postal carriers in Clarksburg from their appointed rounds. Postal Service spokeswoman Cathy Yarosky said mail delivery to seven homes on Milford Street was halted because of the 20-pound terrier.

She said a carrier was injured after falling while trying to run away from Cozmo.

Cozmo's owners Jimmy and Justine Marino, said the dog has never bitten anyone. But they acknowledged he has gotten out of the yard a few times.

The Marinos have been told mail delivery won't resume until they get rid of the dog. Jimmy Marino said efforts to find a new home for Cozmo have been unsuccessful.


Clearly what is needed is an Asturian letter carrier. Too bad they have mostly moved away. Otherwise there wouold be a new winter fur hat in Clarksburg.

Wait a minute. Do you think we might get good chorizos out of Cozmo? He probably eats a healthy diet of acorns, bones (none of that dog food they sell in supermarkets). And he's had an active life in Clarksburg, judging by his letter carrier workouts.

No. They're too active to put on a good layer of fat. Efficient little beasts, though. How many people named Jack Russell have you ever met? Those little dogs have hunted them to near extinction. A very specialized breed.

The sad thought of all those letter carriers with their shins completely bitten away!

Well I graduated with Jim Marino so you can bet that I will be teasing him about this at our next Roosevelt-Wilson high school reunion!
