I was delivering on a route a few years back. As I approached a house, I noticed a dog loose in the yard. The dog barked and growled, but did not come out after me. It was obvious the dog was just outside to "do its business". I walked past the house and placed the mail for that address in my mail satchel.
After I got about five houses down the block, I heard a voice yelling at me from that very house that I has bypassed. A lady yelled out, "Didn’t we have any mail today?!!!"
I replied, "I didn’t deliver your mail because your dog was loose in the yard!"
After a few seconds I heard her say, "He’s done now!!!"
