First Day Cover Honors Canine Hero of Ukraine with 4 Stamps
This is your chance to get four Ukraine stamps on First Day Cover picturing their beloved detection dog, Patron. The Jack Russell Terrier became famous during the 2022 war with Russia when Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelenskyy awarded him the Order for Courage after Patron helped find and defuse unexploded ordnance left behind by Russian troops. As of early May 2022, the Jack Russell Terrier had located 236 such ordnance.
The stamps on this cover picture comic-style images of Patron on the job as well as in humorous situations (such as peeing on Russian ordnance in a field or growling at Russian nesting dolls hiding a grenade). You may also see stamps picturing photographs of the real Patron. The stamps you see on your cover may vary, but each cover includes a full-color cachet of Patron fishing for bombs as well as interesting information about the stamps on the back (in Ukrainian and English).
