U.S. Postal Service honors working dogs

Dogs help people in so many ways and the United States Postal Service is issuing stamps featuring the contributions that working dogs make. This new set of four stamps illustrates some of the many important jobs that dogs do. The dogs portrayed are a guide dog, a tracking, a search and rescue dog and a therapy dog.

The “Dogs at Work” stamps are the work of artist John M. Thompson who created the original paintings and art director Howard E. Paine, who designed them. They are 65 cent stamps, which is the postage required to send a piece of first class mail weighing between one and two ounces.

Dog stamps have sold well in the past, and the “Adopt a Rescue Pet” set sold out quickly at many post office branches. Collectors and dog-lovers will be the most likely buyers of this new canine-related series.
