Meet Jax, the dedicated post office worker

Known for its legendary beauty and charm, the seaside village of Portree, Scotland, on the Isle of Skye, has everything a tourist could want: incredible scenery, quaint shops, classy restaurants and a dog working at the post office. Meet Jax, the adorably cute dog who will be happy to greet you, take your order and even lick your stamps for you.
Postmaster Ray Chandler has managed the post office for the last two years with his faithful four-legged companion by his side, literally. As a greeter, Jax has excelled in his position, warming the hearts of everyone who stops in to buy some stamps or send a letter. Jax is no ordinary greeter, however. He goes above and beyond the call of duty to ensure all the post office's customers' needs have been met.

Jax has earned the title "official stamp licker," and he is glad to do the dirty work for patrons who aren't too fond of licking the backs of those gummy stamps. "Jax absolutely loves it," says Chandler. "He'll actually lick your stamps."
Of course, dogs miss their targets on occasion, and Jax has been known to eat a couple of stamps that he licked accidentally, but what's a little stamp mishap between friends? With his impressive track record, Jax's occasional lapses are more than worth the risk for his customers.
With this dog greeting you every time you walk in the door, wouldn't you want to buy stamps all the time or hang out at the post office all day? In fact, if every post office had a hard-working mascot such as Jax, people might go out of their way to send items via mail instead of going online.
Jax is the working-class hero everyone deserves. Should you visit Portree, stop by the post office and give Jax a cheer for his dedication to his job. He's even been known to listen carefully to Chandler's conversations with patrons.
