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. The use of the snowmobile nearly spelled the doom of the Canadian Eskimo Dog when it replaced the dog sled. Dedicated efforts by the Eskimo Dog Research Foundation have ensured the re-establishment of the breed. Today these dogs are available both as pets and for the original Inuit purposes: pulling sleds; packing loads; and hunting. 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.
