Neat Mint Sheet Commemorates Year of the Dog
This whimsical mint North Korea sheet commemorates the Year of the Dog with several different dog breeds.
According to legend, the dog came in 11th place in the race to determine the Chinese zodiac. The “Jade Emperor,” who wanted a way to measure time, challenged all the animals to race across a wide river. The winners of the race would be included in the zodiac. The dog was a great swimmer, and expected to do well. He needed a bath after all that traveling, and couldn’t resist playing in the river a while longer. Had he played for much longer, the dog might not have been one of the 12 animals included in the Chinese zodiac.
