"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion"
Over the years I have collected German Shepherd nostalgia and stamps like these:
1991 Souvenir (all German Shepherd) stamp sheet from the Udmart Republic, a part of the Russian Federation featuring German Shepherds of all kinds and colors
GSD playing cards from 1938 and 1944
Post card titled "Challenge of the Yukon" issued in 1938. There is a 'stamped' signature of Sargeant Preston at the bottom of the back of the card along with the following description: "GERMAN SHEPHERD is often called a Police Dog. His services to mankind are many. He is very adaptable to training and widely used as a "Seeing Eye" dog for the blind, guard dog and protector. He is intelligent, with power to judge for himself. His loyalty, dignity and honesty make him a real friend to his home and family. German Shepherd pictured here is Champion Captain Franz v.d. Oldehove, C.D."
"For the animal shall not be measured by man. In a world older and more complete than ours they move finished and complete, gifted with extensions of the senses we have lost or never attained, living by voices we shall never hear."
