dear dog

Isn't he the darlingest dog ever? It's easy to see why postal clerks considered 'Owney' their good luck charm. He showed up at the Albany, New York, Post Office in the 1880s and rode for years in postal wagons and trains, helping to deliver the mail. He's still crisscrossing the country and even traveling around the world, now memorialized in a first class stamp. Good dogs stick with us forever in the heart.
