DPD K9 of the day Paul

Today’s dog of the day is canine Paul. Here is what his partner says about him, At work Paul is a hard worker and full of energy. Paul loves his job and would spend everyday at work if he could. He loves his ball but is stubborn and doesn’t like to give it up when it’s time for bed. He has no idea how big he is and his tail is constantly knocking things over. He is a goofy gentle giant and is my best friend.
