One family has devised a way to get their mail directly to their home. Instead of having a mailbox on their driveway, they incorporated it on their front wall. It has proved very convenient for them and their dog loves it. This is because he uses it as a peephole.
Courtney Poole and her husband, Evan, used to pass their pup, Rigby through the mailbox. They found it cute and funny to open up the box and find a small pup inside. But when he started growing bigger, Rigby found another use for it.
According to Courtney, Rigby is the friendliest and sweetest dog that she knows. He wants to become friends with every person or creature that he meets. He loves being around others and playing with them.
Most of the time, the couple would hang out on their porch with their beloved pet. And Rigby gets excited every time people pass by their house. He barks and says hello to everyone, especially to people walking their dogs. And this doesn’t stop even when they are inside their home.
Rigby could not fit his body inside the mailbox anymore, but he can still stick out his head. When he sees something right out the window that piques his curiosity, he would go to the mailbox and use his head to nudge the lid open. He would then pop his head out and start barking.
People would often be surprised by this and they would start laughing. Rigby has become quite popular in their neighborhood because of this.
The smart dog sometimes even puts his toys inside the mailbox and pretends that it was a special delivery for him.
Courtney said that there was one hilarious incident with Rigby and the mailman. The dog saw the carrier approach their house and he was excited to greet him. Just as the man was opening the mailbox, Rigby stuck his head out and surprised the mail carrier. The man was startled for a second.
Fortunately, Rigby and the mail carrier are best of friends now.
