Royal Mail’s new Corgi stamp

Royal Mail is issuing a new set of stamps featuring images of some of the nation’s favourite dog breeds including a Pembroke Welsh Corgi.

The stamps show a Dalmatian, Jack Russell-type terrier, Labrador Retriever, Border Collie, whippet, Siberian Husky, Chihuahua, cocker spaniel, Pembroke Welsh Corgi and pug.

Man’s best friend

The Royal Mail noted that more people around the world own a dog than any other pet, and a third of households in the UK have one.

Siberian Husky and Border Collie stamps

David Gold, Royal Mail’s director of external affairs and policy said: “British people are known for their love of animals, and especially dogs.”

Postie issues

He added, however: “We hope that these beautiful stamps will bring added joy when they drop through people’s letterboxes on cards and letters – and remind our customers to place their cherished dog in another room when opening the door to collect mail from their postie.”

Royal Mail worked on the stamp issue with animal expert Tamsin Pickeral, who is the author of The Dog: 5,000 Years Of The Dog in Art and The Spirit of the Dog.

The stamps, and a range of collectible products, are available from today.
