    Doggie mailbox


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     BQueen1's artistic neighbor in Glen Cove, New York, built this imaginative mailbox, inspired by her dog and surrounded by other sculptures. 'I love animals and I just like to walk that way and pass doggie, then I feel better for a good part of the day,' she says.

    I posted this original mailbox once before but now an appropriate assignment came up.
    It's the work of my neighbor Heidi DiGiovanni. an artisan of many years. Her yard is full of wonderful things she creates. She lives with two sons and her husband.
    The mailbox is inspired by their 8 year old Bull Terrier named Bradly.
    Doggie is made of fiberglass and other scrap parts crafted around the mailbox. The dog bones it rests on are made of wood.
    Bradley says he hopes he doesn't have to say goodbye to the mailman!
