Stamps

hungry_pixel, thirstypixel, and inbetween_girl - There's a Tia-the-dog stamp coming out from Royal Mail in March. (Part of a Battersea Cats & Dogs series which is heavily biased towards dogs - 3 cats, 7 dogs.)

pittenweem - There's a St. Andrews mini-stamp coming out out two weeks after Tia-the-dog. (A tie-in to a series of Stewart stamps.)

(And as long as I'm on the subject - coughingbear - I assume you have an 1860 Able Seaman stamp already?)

Also - they're working their way steadily through royalty. In addition to the House of Stewart, Lancaster, York, and Tudor are coming up in the first half of the year, with miniature tie-ins for related events and people, such as the Royal Exchange and Drake's circumnavigation of the world.

The Tia on the stamp is a different breed, but she's also moderately size, if furrier. (If I could find an online copy this would be easier. It's not on Royal Mail's site, nor does my first Google Images search yield it. I'm really poor at knowing my dog breeds.)

I was a stamp collector for a couple of years in my early teens. It was easy to get started, since that year I was living in a large block flats with people from all over the world, who would tear off their pretty international stamps and leave them in a basket for the stamp-interested to pillage. I haven't been one in years, but it did leave me a residual interest in them. Small little posters!
