Neapolitan Mastiff in a Window

Rudi Hurzlmeier (artist)
 "Am Fenster" (translation from German: At The Window)

postmarked in 2013 three Great Britain stamps (two green: queen 20 p and one stamp of The Cyberman from Doctor Who)

The Neapolitan Mastiff or Italian Mastiff  is a large, ancient dog breed. 

A male Neapolitan Mastiffs should measure 26–31 inches (66–79 cm) at the withers and weigh 130–155 pounds (60-70 kg), while females should measure 24–29 inches (61–74 cm) and weigh 110–130pounds (50–60 kg).

The Neapolitan Mastiff is not a breed for most people, and certainly not a dog for beginners. They are large, powerful dogs and sometimes they do not always know their own strength. 


Great Britain stamp 2013,
Cyberman from Doctor Who, 2nd

- - - - - - -

The Cybermen are a fictional race of cyborgs who are amongst the most persistent enemies of the Doctor in the British science fiction television series, Doctor Who. Cybermen were originally a wholly organic species of humanoids originating on Earth's twin planet Mondas that began to implant more and more artificial parts into their bodies as a means of self-preservation. This led to the race becoming coldly logical and calculating, with every emotion deleted from their minds.

Those are British stamps LOL....anyway using `Germany Stamps` as adjective is incorrect diction

Brenda Perez said...

haha! Thanks, Butterflypostcard.... I wrote it correctly on the bottom, but not by the card. I fixed it though - thanks again for letting me know, I try very hard to list everything correctly.

I couldn't help thinking of the song "How Much Is That Doggie In The Window."

I have been hoping for a Dr Who stamp......
and coincidentally, I just read that the current Dr is leaving after this season.

I wonder how the Queen feels about sharing a stamp with a Cyberman.

The cyberman stamps was either on the minisheet or in the booklet, and were not easy to get at the Post Office - I tried!

Joy said...

I like the 'Doctor's enemies' mini sheet, looks even more spooky as an individual stamps.

My bestfriend is a big fan of Dr. Who. Seeing the stamp you posted here, I'm more enticed to see the series too!

I did not know they made dr. Who stamps! I hope to get one someday. Thank you for joining us this week.

I forgot the Dr Who stamps had been issued. But then that magnificent painting of the mastiff almost made me not look at the stamps.

I have the full set of Dr Who stamp cards and most of the stamps too. I can't bring myself to part with them even though I bought them specifically for sending out.

Sheila @ A Postcard a Day said...

PS. Thank you for the link to the International Postcard Week site. I will mark the date carefully this year.
