Village Magazine

                     

 

Lyn and I were on our way out to do a bit of shopping ~ First we had a letter to post so turned right out of our driveway ~ just a short distance down the lane we saw a lady with an armful of "The Village Magazine" ~

 

The lady was not the regular one who delivers these ~ and we wondered and hoped she would put it in the mail box at the front of the drive (which is big and Red) so we figured no way would she miss it ~

 

 

But we decided we would post the letter and just reverse and go back to check it out ~ which we did ~ looking in the mail box it was empty ~ at this point the said lady came out of our neighbours drive and gave us a funny kind of a look ~ we thought she was about to give us a magazine ~ but she went on her way ~

 

We got out of the car and went indoors ~ as you can see by the photographs she had posted it through the letterbox ~ and it was shredded ~ and Barney was standing guard over it  ~ just in case it moved ~

 

 

On inspection we could see blood stains here and there on the magazine ~ but came to the conclusion it was from Barney ~ think he may have cut his lip as he attacked the letter box from indoors ~ which is metal and bears his teeth marks ~

 

Cannot imagine someone actually fighting to get it through the letter box ~ with a dog having a go from inside ~ Just hope it was Barney's blood and not hers ~

Would you refresh my memory,
please, I forget who's "Lyn": Your
daughter? If Barney had been left
alone for a week I might understand
his attacking the mail delivery. The
deliverer might have said something really
dreadful to him?!     - Barry

Oh dear, I am sorry but I just had to laugh. I could imagine the tug of war between Barney and that woman. Hope he has not cut himself too badly and sorry your mag is shredded.

Hi Ally I know I souldn't be laughing my sides sore, but I am.Barney looks so comical there looking at that letter.As if he is saying there that will show them whoever comes near my moms box LOL!! Looks to me like he would make a good shredder, I could do with a new one for Xmas, for the empty envelopes once I have opened my cards. Haaaaaaaaa!! Send him over.Hope you manage to read it anyway.I loved this,then again I love your journal.Take Care.God Bless You and Yours.Hope you and Lynne  enjoyed your shopping trip.

Our Harper used to like to 'kill the post' we eventually trained him not to but he still hates the free newspapers.

LOL!  I thought dogs only did that in movies and on commercials!  Funny Barney!  Can I borrow him for when the bills are coming in???  Jae

salonrose123 said...

She'll know in future to use the mail box!!
I didn't think dogs did that in real life....thought it was just in cartoons.  Obviously not!!
Hugs,

jmoqueen said...

I expect if it was her blood she would've said something to you instead of giving you a funny look ;-)

csandhollow said...

Now why on earth would she do that? Silly woman.

rachealcarol said...

He obviously wanted to read it first Ally :)  Hope his cut is ok.  He's a fighsty little thing at strange objects. Rache

kerryjayne39 said...

Maybe you should invest in some neon lights to go around your bright red post box, maybe that way ditsy callers like that one will see it lol. Thank you for your lovely comment.

sarajanesmiles said...

I shouldn't be laughing, I know I shouldn't, but the thought of your Barney standing guard over the magazine, in case it moved... well, it tickled me ;o)  What a brave doggy ;o) ;o)

Hi there Ally,

Yes, I too hope the lady is all right.  I hope you were still able to read the print too.

By for now,

John.

lindachapmanuk said...

LMAO!! im sorry Ally, that was so funny....Barney still standing guard....too funny! Linda xx

xxroxymamaxx said...

Oh my goodness.  That is odd that she did that.  And Barney for chewing it up. lol Hugs and GBU, Shelly

mtrib2 said...

The woman must have had Barney on the other end biting and chewing the envelope as she was pushing it through the letter opening.    That would have been a surprize for her that she won't soon forget.     I guess your red mailbox looks like a yard ornament and you may need to put lettering on it saying 'mailbox'.     Hope Barney's lip is OK!   mark

grahamfarmga said...

LOL I came by to catch up on you and Barney! I truly love that little dog!
