Soft Toy #4

Soft Toy. Smithsonian National Postal Museum, Washington, D.C., USA. 2013

Submitted by Jenni Fuchs

My favourite museum in Washington, D.C. is the Smithsonian National Postal Museum. One of their exhibits is Owney, a dog who used to ride along with the post in the days of railroad delivery. Now he has been immortalised as a taxidermy exhibit at the museum. Owney can also be found on Twitter, and we’ve become what I would called ‘Twitter pals’. So, of course, the last time we visited Washington, D.C. I had to get my son one of the Owney mascots from the souvenir shop!
