Wyatt said...

That's a pretty neat collection you have there!
We are going to send a Wyatt garden picture
your way.


Patrice said...

You would be swamped with post cards from pets all over if that is your request. I know my German Shepherd would certainly send you one. Oh, and by the way, she collects anything that belongs to our other dog. She has a bit of thief in her!I can buy her a chew, and she is only mildly interested. However, if she steals something from our Amish Shepherd Miss Amy Blue, it is always more cherished!

Oreo said...

That is a really cute idea to collect postcards. They are a ton of cool ones and I will have to send you one too :-)


Diana Chiew said...

We love your figurine collection. We don't have a collection but we do have a figurine of a miniature schnauzer. Do you have a postcard from Malaysia? We could send you one if you would email us your snail mail address.
