Celebrate the joy of Lunar New Year with this scroll-shaped souvenir sheet honouring the Year of the Dog. This colourful collectible, which bears the international-rate stamp from this issue, is a wonderful gift for a friend or relative born in the Year of the Dog, or for parents expecting a child this year.

The stamp features an illustration of a golden dog on a glowing red lantern. In the lower left is the Chinese character for dog, gǒu, in calligraphy by Order of Ontario recipient Albert Ng. Above the stamp, set over an image of several red lanterns, are the words ‘Year of the Dog’ in English and French, and a traditional Lunar New Year greeting in Chinese characters. The souvenir sheet is embossed and gold foil has been used to highlight details.

The Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018, and lasts until February 4, 2019. Those born under this sign are said to be loyal, happy, and playful but sometimes stubborn. Driven by a sense of duty and justice, and disinterested in wealth or power, these sympathetic people put the well-being of others above all else.

Red, green, and purple are the lucky colours for those born in the Year of the Dog. Their lucky numbers are 3, 4, and 9.

This collectible is part of the tenth issue in Canada Post’s Lunar New Year series, which began with the Year of the Ox in 2009.
