This is the mailbox in my house. These are my dogs. The dog on the right, Rufus, hates my mailbox, and loves the mail tha comes through it. So much so that he eats the mail unless I can get to it first. If you look carefully, you can see where he has chipped the paint away from the lid of the box by jumping up and biting it. He has cut his leg on the box, cut his lip on the box, and still, he waits patiently for the mail every day. Silly dog.
