Postman: a hell of a job by gyaban Postman: a hell of a job by gyaban
Dogs do really love chasing and barking at postmen. Such scene is often seen in movies or cartoons, but it really happens all the time in real life. In France, when someone gets bitten by a dog, the law says that a rabies analysis must be conducted. My wife being a vet, she regularly performs such tests, and half of the time, the bitten victim is a postman.

From there, I decided to pay a little homage to that profession, by creating this stamp involving a very dangerous dog, Cerberus himself! I must confess the actual model is far from being ferocious. In fact, the poor thing was quite ill, and being taken care of by my wife at her work's place. Since we don't have a dog, I decided to pay them a little visit and snap some photos. The dog was very calm and peaceful, and making him look threatening was a challenge: 13 photos of the animal were used for that. I shot everything else in my house (fire, postman, mail, stamp) or around it (mailbox, sky).

I enjoyed creating this stamp, and I hope some postmen out there will find it funny!

That's great. There's a dog that looks sort of like this on my street (Pit Bull mix) and she chases the mailman, meter man, joggers, etc. She bit the meter man a few weeks ago, luckily it wasn't too hard. Her owner is ready to put her down so I'm trying to find her a home. Anyway, that's a great theme and the end result is terrific. :)
