    ARMOR LABORATORIES HAS A GIRL MESSENGER WHO NEVER TALKS BACK, DOESN'T TAKE COFFEE BREAKS, IS THE LOWEST-PAID WORKER ON THE JOB...BUT STILL IS TREATED LIKE A DOG.

    SHE IS A DOG....SHADOW. FROM 8 TO 5 SHE PADS THE HALLS DELIVERING PAINT ORDERS. SHE'S BEEN AT IT SEVEN YEARS, SINCE SHE WAS FOUR MONTHS OLD, AND HASN'T BEEN STEPPED ON, SHOWED OR LOST AN ORDER YET.

    HER OWNERS ARE MR. AND MRS. BEN MADDOX, MRS. MADDOX WORKS IN THE FRONT OFFICE. SHE TYPES AN ORDER AND GIVES IT TO SHADOW, WHO TROTS DOWN THE HALL TO FIND MADDOX, THE ONLY PERSON TO WHICH SHE'LL DELIVER.

    "EVERY ONCE IN A WHILE I'LL GIVE HER A BIT TO EAT WHEN SHE BRINGS ME A MESSAGE," MADDOX SAYS, "BUT SHE DOESN'T EXPECT IT. SHE'S JUST DOING HER JOB."
    SHADOW IS A GERMAN SHEPHERD. SHE GOT HER TRAINING AT AN OBEDIENCE SCHOOL, SHE TOOK TO DELIVERY WORK IMMEDIATELY.

    "WE GIVE HER AN HOUR FOR LUNCH," SAYS MRS. MADDOX, "WITH ALL THE WORK SHE DOES, SHE OUGHT TO BE ON THE PAYROLL. IT WOULD BE HARD TO DO WITHOUT HER. SHADOW SAVES SOMEBODY AN AWFUL LOT OF 'WORK...ME."
