Dog Friendly Sussex: Meet the adorable pooch known locally as 'the newspaper dog'
and live on Freeview channel 276
Sally and John Strickland, of Graydon Avenue, brought Molly home 13 years ago when she was ten-weeks-old.
While out on a walk one day, Molly ‘asked’ to carry John’s newspaper home by nudging it with her nose, and she has been entrusted with the important task every day since.
Despite being nervous around new people, she has built up a local following and is admired by drivers queuing in morning traffic.
Sally said: “We are stopped often when walking her and asked 'is that the dog we see with the paper in the mornings?'”
Molly has a hip condition which makes it difficult to learn other tricks, though she has mastered giving her paw, ‘speaking’ when asked and giving kisses.
Sally added: "Molly knows lots of command words, when she decides to listen.
“[She] likes to approach you in her own time, but once she likes you she is very loving.”
