Mint set of four gummed stamps.
Individual stamps in this set
Cavalier King Charles spaniel Spencer has impeccable fashion sense. He shares his house with Sadie Mae, another cavalier, cat tormentor Luna, and his human mum, dad and brothers. He is obsessed with water and prefers humans to other dogs.
Three-year-old seal point ragdoll Zita is cute and she knows it. She loves to patrol the neighbourhood and pose for Instagram.
Maroon-bellied conure Kea is as cheeky as his native namesake. He likes to steal juice, climb up sleeves, and yell for attention before switching to an innocent chirp.
Oh-good the sheep is 18 months old. She likes to go wandering, and occasionally breaks into houses and sheds. She loves running along the fence line when she’s excited or sees her owner’s truck. Most of all, she loves food - especially Gingernuts.
This stamp issue celebrates the special relationships between Kiwis and their companion animals. Click here for more information.
