This 6 stamp booklet is the 1st dedicated to the dogs and cats of French Polynesia. Indeed, several countries have issued stamps in recent years for their kittens and / or their doggies. These stamps are gaining popularity, especially among the youngest collectors, but not only ...

Also the Polynesian Post has launched a photo contest from March 20 to April 25th, 2017 through its facebook page "tahitiphilatelie.com", to select 6 pictures of dogs or cats with a Polynesian feeling (among vegetation, on the beach , with fruits, flowers, a pareo, etc.).

Several hundred photos were submitted by Internet users, of which 15 were pre-selected and proposed for online voting (8 dogs and 7 cats).
The many voters voted over a dog winner, the royal poodle "Sydney" and a cat winner, "Caramel" playing with a purple orchid. Then the jury of the Polynesian Post designated 4 other winners (2 dogs and 2 cats).

These are the 6 photographs that you find inside this stamp booklet.
Beside “Caramel”, we find the magnificent” “kitty”, a red-haired cat who takes refuge behind red hibiscus, and “Gribouille” proudly sporting her gray coat next to yellow flowers.
“Sydney” is accompanied by the young dog “Peanuts”, who proudly poses on a background of banana leaves, next to a coconut way "cocktail" of the “fenua”. Finally dressed in a yellow "more" and a headdress of the same color, the delicious Lolly takes us the great canine game in "tropical" Juanita banana!
Two more photos were selected, namely the dog "Heipi" wearing her red hibiscus collar necklace and the cat "BB8" with hypnotic green eyes on the back of the booklet.

This 6 stamp booklet is also the opportunity for Polynesian Post to highlight our daily companions, as well as the many actions carried out by the associations that collect animals abandoned, as Heipi and Peanuts were collected from these organizations by their masters !

The Polynesian Post Office is pleased to share these photos of dogs and cats, especially those abandoned animals that fate has caught up by giving them a second chance, hoping that other beautiful philatelic stories canines and felines can be written, Thanks to the help and generosity of all the friends of the animal cause
