Pets on Stamps

The theme for Sunday Stamps this week is Pets. I have been looking among my received stamps and I have realised I don't have a lot of stamps featuring pets. Unless I consider tigers, frogs or teddy bears as pets... Having no pets myself, maybe I lack of this kind of imagination. So I will show you the most traditional pets: dogs and cats.

From Taiwan


From the USA

I find these stamps from Taiwan and the USA are quite similar in design. The following ones from the Netherlands are a completely different concept. By the way, three of my favourite stamps by Dutch illustrators Dick Bruna, Fiep Westendorp and Charles Burki.









By the way, have you checked this new website called Petpals? It can be interesting for mail & pets lovers...

  9. Those dogs on the Chinese stamps are adorable! And I absolutely love that last Dutch one! I can just sense the dog's happiness and his yap-yap-yapping at the postman! Love it!!!

    btw, just now at this other blog, I read how you saw an Escher's exhibition in Granada...in 2011! Couldnt believe the coincidence! I was there too...it was in one of those rooms, where they also had a video running related to his works...that is where I discovered Escher, and loved his work ever since! It is so funny how small this world is! :D

    sending you regards from Macedonia!

    btw, if you need a Macedonian card, just drop me a line ;-)

  10. Some amazingly cute Dutch stamps. When I was in Antwerp they had a whole alphabet of Dick Bruna postcards in the printing museum. Postcard heaven.
