Dog Letterbox, New Zealand The highway to Gore out of Tapanui is real quiet now we’re in lockdown; we walked there today so at last I have a shot of this cute dog letterbox. West Otago, New Zealand.

We’ve seen a lot in the States over the years, but were surprised and delighted to find some great ones in Tasmania in 2016. Here’s a link to my Mailbox Magic blog post, which you might find entertaining! https://platypuspandemonium.wordpress.com/2016/12/27/the-voyage-of-captain-quirk-1-mailbox-magic/ Best wishes!

I knew about him from my childhood (no, I didn’t know him IN my childhood, I’m not THAT old !! 🙂), and even remember illustrations of him in the comics I used to read. But I never made the connection between him and the mailbox we came across in Tassie. I was amazed and delighted, on following through on your link, to discover that his suit of armour still exists in a museum.

He had a huge toy dog in the back of the car and a real small dog sitting unseen at the front…neighbour passed by and got a real fright when she thought she heard the toy dog bark, hehe!
