Grave of Brownie.

Brownie the Post Office Dog

Brownie the Post Office Dog lived at the Beach Street Post Office and was considered a postal employee. He slept on the mail bags and helped the mailmen deliver mail. He had a bank account at the Florida Bank and Trust (the same bank where the more famous Brownie the Town Dog had his account) that was funded by the Postal Service. When Brownie the Post Office Dog died in 1970, he was buried beside the Post Office. If you are facing the building, his grave is to the right, in an alley next to the Post Office.

Grave of the other Brownie.

Brownie the Post Office Dog

You have a listing for the grave of Brownie the Town Dog, but a less-known Brownie dog also has a memorial, at the historic downtown post office, just down the street from the other Brownie. This second Brownie showed up shortly after Brownie #1 died.

[Don Williamson, 01/10/2016]

Brownie #1 was a stray who would hang out at the local cab company. Brownie #2, also a stray, liked to walk along with Daytona Beach's mail carriers. He died in 1970, and was buried next to the post office. Afterward, no Brownie #3 appeared.
