Dog Needs ID to Claim Package

April Livingston | September 3rd, 2018

It’s hard to believe that a sweet dog named Chaya would cause trouble with the mail. But that’s just what happened recently, when a package addressed to Chaya arrived via the mail. Chaya is a boxerweiler (a boxer and Rottweiler mix) and lives with her mom Marie Palmgren and her family in Sweden. The mail carrier arrived at the family’s home recently and there was a large parcel that needed to be picked up at the post office. The package was addressed to Chaya, and it was a dog toy from a friend. No one knew how much that would complicate the situation.

Marie headed to the post office with the slip to pick up the package and that’s when things went downhill. She wasn’t sure how to fill out the form, as it said the addressee needed to provide an ID and a signature. She told staffers that the package was addressed to her dog Chaya instead of her. The employees were not amused or swayed by this information. In fact, they demanded Chaya’s ID and signature and one from Marie, as she was there to pick up the package on her dog’s behalf.

Marie found documentation that Chaya was her dog and brought that, along with Chaya, back to the post office. After waiting outside for a while, she was told Chaya needed to sign the form. So, they brought out an ink pad so Chaya could use her paw to “Sign” the form. Then, once her signature dried Marie could finally get the package. While it was funny to Marie, she says the staff was all business about the documentation. As for Chaya, she now has her package: inside was a fun water toy that she enjoys playing with in her backyard. Perhaps it was all worth the effort and signatures for a doggy toy!
