In the neighborhood

Here I was thinking we were going out to get the newspaper (but wondering why I had my lead on as I don't usually do that just to get the paper) when Mom surprised me and said "lets go for a walk big dog - just you and me" Dog oh dog was I happy!!!! We actually had some rain a few days ago so everything is looking very green and pretty. Of coarse I had to check all the latest pee-mail and leave some 'messages' of my own. As we were walking Mom suddenly noticed something. Around our neighborhood the houses all have these big brick mail boxes and many people have decorated the tops with things. Here are some we saw - there was a big urn on one - a pineapple on another and a pug dog and puppy on another. We have many more to share (we were very carefully not to show numbers or addresses). We wondered if any one else has interesting mail boxes around their neighborhood? Take your Moms and Dad out for a walk and see what you can find - we will even send out some presents to the best ones. Have fun and remember those parents NEED the exercise - we only go to keep them company gawoof gawoof!!! Of coarse now Mom is wondering if she can find a sheltie statue to go on our mail box - silly Mom!

PS - She did find some !!! They are a little too expensive for us but - you can see them here - and many other doggies too !



  1. How nice of Mom to give you some special time. Those are neat. Our boxes are all attached to our homes here.

  2. Those are all very nice. We only have community mailboxes. Ours is located right across from our driveway and the postal service is very strict about them. Guess we won't be able to add any cool decorations to ours. Those are very nice ones you found. Not to mention the fun of the walk.

  4. Oh, a statue of you would be super!! It's not quite cool enough here for walks, but mom is getting some crazy idea of getting up EARLY and going for jogs...early? Yeah, right, ain't gonna happen!!

  5. Teehee!! We have lots of silly mailboxes too! There are whole mailboxes and stands shaped like a huge manatee! And I also remember one mailbox with a school bus on top of it! I'll have to remember to take some pics of them one day to share with you! :)

    Woofs & hugs, <3

  6. My parents have been holding out... I'm not resembled on the mailbox at ALL!

  7. It sounds like you had a great time. We don't have fancy mailboxes around here.

    Nubbin wiggles,

  8. It was great of your mom to take you on a special walk like that Reilly!

  9. We had to get one of those rubbermaid mailboxes because people knocked ours over. But those sure are some nice looking boxes there. :)

  10. We can think of a couple of cool mailboxes along our walkie. We'll have to get some pictures of them, Reilly! You found some really pretty ones!

    Love ya lots

  11. What a nice walk! I saw this Sheltie statue online (I don't know them) and thought I'd share with your hu-Mom! Happy Wednesday!

  12. You got to go on a walk all alone with your Mom? How cool!I bet you had a great time! We have a boring brown mailbox...but I'll keep an eye out for something more interesting!

  13. What cool mailboxes! I DEFINITELY think mommy needs to get sheltie on top of yours. :)


Thank you for woofing at us - we read each and every one of them
