LONG BEACH — Not every visitor to the Long Beach Post Office has two legs — some have four.

Tammy Haataja greets them warmly, shakes their paw, and stoops to feed them a treat.

Koa, whose human is Mark Brist, is an energetic 10-month-old mixed breed. He was among those who visited Haataja Oct. 13 while she was being interviewed about her appointment as postmaster.

She takes over from Mark Scarborough, who retired after 17 years with the post office. Back in May, Scarborough began an extended leave while he cared for his mother in Portland.
