In 1888 a stray dog wandered into the U. S. Post Office in Albany, New York. The workers named him Owney and made him their pet. Owney went on to guard the mail – not just in the post office, but on mail trains that traveled all over the United States. Discover more about Owney at this Thursday’s Mommy & Me as we read a book about his incredible true story, learn about the tags he acquired everywhere he went, and make a paper bag puppet craft.
