Dog ate my card 😳

Brought my mail in and set in on the couch, then back to the office to complete a task. Came back to find the dog obliterated my new card. I hadn’t even looked at either the image or the message. My sincerest apologies to the sender, whoever you were…

Can’t be from me; handwriting looks legible. (I’m guessing it was a picture of a cat).

Hi Mik!

The team can help with this — just fill out the form with as much information as you have about this postcard (kitten stamps, someone from Munich, broad description of what might be featured on the image side of the card etc) and we’ll find the right ID for you! :slight_smile:

:rofl: I would say the postcard was from Germany because of the stamp.

From Germany because the registration number begins with DE.

Yes it was from Germany and had a partial number so I asked for help. It’s like doing a very small jigsaw puzzle…

It’s offical card from Germany, so won’t be hard to find, just fill the form mentioned by Ana:)
And don’t be mad on your dog, it deliberately shared it love for the card in it’s own way:)

I know we generally don’t show the written side but in this case I think it’s ok. I do like jigsaw puzzles and with some effort this one may come back together!!

Your post reminded me of this old video…

Is your dog called Morgan? :dog:

This might be the reverse side of the card, Bear Bull by Edward Curtis

The US Postal Service used to make puzzle postcards. They are still available on eBay etc…I’ve often thought about buying a few and mailing. Maybe I will now…

:joy: Greetings to your sweet doggie! :dog: His puzzle-making made me laugh. (Though it’s a pity, of course.)

There is a common excuse for not doing homework in the US where a child might say “my dog ate my homework!” and it looks like now those kids might have some credibility!

I guess your dog didn’t like the cat stamp! :joy:

This was so funny to read. Your dog did a very thorough job. :dog: I hope it wasn’t the cat stamp that he didn’t like. What a nice cat stamp! I wonder if other people’s dogs have also eaten postcards before. My cat doesn’t like the carbs.

I got a giggle reading this thread. I’m confident that postcrossing help will find the sender for you. This incident reminds me of the excuse, “the dog ate my homework.” I’m retired from the public school system.:rofl:

Well, I have neither a dog nor a cat, but a little 11 month old son and he would looooove to eat my postcards if he could get one into his little hands. He puts everything in his mouth and is fascinated by postcards, so I have to be extra careful where I put them at the moment… :rofl:

I spoke with the kind sender and my dog will send a heartfelt apology card, postage paid from her allowance money. But Zia did not look very remorseful the other day so it may be a trick to get out of more stern punishment…
