Owney the Mail Dog Custom Miniature / Figurine
hi i wanted to do a custom of the most famous mail dog of all.heres a little of his story...Owney was a scruffy mutt who became a regular fixture at the Albany, New York, post office in 1888. His owner was likely a postal clerk who let the dog walk him to work. Owney was attracted to the texture or scent of the mailbags and when his master moved away, Owney stayed with his new mail clerk friends. He soon began to follow mailbags. At first, he followed them onto mail wagons and then onto mail trains. Owney began to ride with the bags on Railway Post Office (RPO) train cars across the state . . . and then the country! In 1895 Owney made an around-the-world trip, traveling with mailbags on trains and steamships to Asia and across Europe, before returning to Albany.he was seen a a lucky charm lol a dog that helps deliver mail and not attacking the mail yes that is a lucky charm lol.hope you like it ^^
