You are being melted by Alabama the Pitbull Goddess' most adoring gaze, here used in a co-operative venture. The first rate cancellations are by Lauri Dodge, our mail carrier.
The stamps are from the US Postal Service, designed by Tulle Hazelrigg using a photograph of my dog Alabama by Eli Robinson. If the dog looks sheepish, it is only because she dislikes her raincoat.
I made the envelopes with help of excellent Glen Sturgis of Capitol Copy, Montpelier, Vermont. The photos are (1) Alabama in a blue bandanna by Trish O'Regan. (2) Alabama in a chocolate mood from a photo by Saree Robinson. Saree saw Alabama's true heart, despite numerous defects, and saved her from death at the Boulder pound.
