Sunday Stamps

The theme this week is animals as pets. So I have brought my box of postcards upstairs where I am cat sitting and watching the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show on a big screen TV. In HD.
Who knew there could be so many different breeds of dogs?



So you'd think there would be more dogs on stamps....
but this is the only one I found, and he looks so sad.

as does this cat, though I guess he was instructed to look sad as he is from the animal rescue...

then we have these kitties doing the gazing upward and posing thing 
from in Taiwan 

and the Siamese cat staring with her bright blue eyes from China
but surely, this is the best pet to have...
a domestic white goose to take you on adventures as happens in The Wonderful Adventures of Nils by Selma Lagerlof, a Swedish author of children's books. She was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for Literature.

  1. Lovely stamps! Yes there are lots of breeds of dog aren't there? I reckon it's because we as a species are so varied in what we find attractive in a pet and useful in a working animal.

  3. Lovely collection of stamps. The last stamp reminded me of my childhood when I read Selma Lagerlöf's "he Wonderful Adventures of Nils"...

  6. I thought you were going to find all sorts of stamps with cats and dogs on them. I'm surprised that there are so few. I think this situation needs to be rectified immediately, don't you think?

  8. Isn't he great? I am not familiar with the story of Nils, though it was written in 1906, so had plenty of time to cross the Atlantic.

  10. And what about the rabbit? Where are the rabbit stamps?
    Love the cats especially..... but that last one is amazing. Think how quickly we could get about.

  11. I used to collect stamps showing animals. I wonder what happened to them? I love the goose - what a wonderful thought, to fly astride a great white bird.

  12. Is that a checked table cloth with those kitten, guess they are looking for a snack. The pet goose is superb, what adventures you could have between the wings.
