Starting today, a new set of stamps honoring working dogs will be available at the U.S. post office. You can buy them online from the USPS website by clicking here. The official description is as follows:
In today’s world, dogs are more than just best friends — frequently, they’re also superb coworkers. The U.S. Postal Service® celebrates the enduring partnership between dogs and people with the Dogs at Work issuance. This set of four stamps depicts four hard-working canines: a guide dog assisting a woman who is blind, a tracking dog on the trail of a scent, a therapy dog visiting an elderly woman in her home, and a search and rescue dog standing in a field, ready to tackle the next assignment.
Artist John M. Thompson created original paintings for the stamps, which were designed by art director Howard E. Paine. The “Dogs At Work” stamps are being issued at a 65-cent denomination, which is the price for single-piece retail First-Class Mail weighing more than one ounce and up to and including two ounces.
If happen to need stamps, please consider buying this set to honor our hard-working canine friends. I would love it if I were to receive a stamped letter featuring one of these dogs. Click here for the full description.
