Today is the busiest shipping day of the year, so it seems appropriate to post about our favorite stamps.

One of the attendants at the post office who knows us and what we do well (as we're in there all the time) was insistent that I had to purchase a certain type of stamp.  He ran to the back and came back with sheets of "Owney".  I fell in love and wanted to share his story that is on the back of the sheet of 20 FOREVER stamps:

"During the late 1880's, a dog, likely a terrier mix, appeared in the Post Office in Albany, New York, where clerks took a liking to him and named him Owney.  Fond of riding in postal wagons, Owney followed mailbags onto trains, where Railway Mail Service employees considered him their good-luck charm.  As Owney traveled the country, clerks affixed medals and tags to his collar to document his travels, and Postmaster General John Wanamaker gave him a special dog-sized jacket to help him display them all.  Owney later toured the world by steamer and became an icon of American postal lore.  His adventures highligh the historical importance of the Railway Mail Service, and today he enjoys a place of honor at the Smithsonian Institution's National Postal Museum in Washington D.C."

Support your local post office this holiday season and don't forget to pick up your own "Owney" stamps.
