About Stamp

Dogs are affectionately known as "man's best friend". Ask any dog lover, particularly members of the Canadian Kennel Club, which is celebrating its centennial this year. In recognition of this milestone, these stamps feature four dogs breeds native to Canada. Because of their good temperments and fine skills, these breeds may be working dogs or pets. This large, powerful breed was developed for use on fishing boats. A strong swimmer, it has rescued people, and can perform many other invaluable tasks. This gentle dog is good with children, often serving as their protector. The illustrations appearing on these four stamps are the work of Mia Lane of Bath, Ontario. Lane is both a dog breeder and an accomplished artist. Each dog is shown in a setting typical of its place of origin in Canada. David Nethercott of Ottawa provided the layout and typography for the stamps.
