On December 22, 2020 the State Committee of Information Technology and Communications of the Kyrgyz Republic puts into circulation a series of Kyrgyz Express Post postage stamps: “Domestic Dogs”.
Since ancient times dogs have lived next to people, being their protectors, helpers and companions.
The new series of KEP postage stamps includes 3 miniatures depicting the following breeds of domestic dogs: Dalmatian, Alaskan Malamute and Akita Inu:
Dalmatian is a Croatian dog breed whose name comes from Dalmatia, a historic region of the Balkan Peninsula. Dalmatians are medium-sized, strong and active dogs.
Alaskan Malamute is one of the oldest breeds of dogs. Its name comes from the Eskimo tribe “Malemiut”, who lived in the coastal areas of Alaska. This breed of dog is healthy, very resilient and resistant to extreme weather conditions.
Akita Inu is a Japanese dog breed that originated in the Akita province on Honshu Island. Even in ancient times, Akita Inu were bred primarily as hunting and guard dogs. In Japan, this breed is considered a national treasure. The Japanese themselves call Akita Inu the "Treasure of Japan".
For this series, KEP also issues three postcards, which are used to realize three maximum cards.
