The Year of the Dog begins on February 16, 2018 and ends on February 4th, 2019. People born under the sign of the Dog are said to be loyal, trustworthy and easy going. (full disclosure: me!) This stamp features an eager looking little dog in front of  a Chinese lantern with the traditional red and gold colour scheme.

I had to go back to 2006 for a Year of the Dog stamp.

It's an excellent choice to have this dog printed on a lantern featured on the stamp :)
