1996 ONE ROYAL Copper-Nickel Prooflike, enclosed in a large First Day Cover. The BULLDOG part of the Dog series which started with the Queen's Corgi. Diameter: 38.8 mm. GRADE: As issued very clean cover. Among dogs the biggest of the big are breeds like the Great Dane, Mastiff and the mighty St. Bernard, which can weigh more than 150 pounds, while at the other end of the scale there are the Pekinese and the diminutive Chihuahua, a toy dog that's often lighter than a pound bag of sugar! Unsurprisingly, dogs this large and this small are not built for speed and so cannot run anything like as fast as a Greyhound. The world's fastest dog with a top speed of around 40 miles per hour, for years the slender-legged Greyhound was a hunting dog, while other breeds were trained to herd sheep and cattle. The Old English Sheepdog and the Collie were two such specialists, the natural herding tendency of Border Collies ensuring that they were ideally suited for moving sheep from place to place. Other common working dogs include German Shepherds and Labrador Retrievers. Like the Collie breeds also make lively and likeable family pets. Another friendly and much-loved pooch is the Dalmatian, now more popular than ever following the launch of the films 101 Dalmatians and it's sequel 102 Dalmatians. Far less well-known is Skye Terrier, the most famous member of this small, long-haired breed being Greyfriars Bobby, whose devotion was so unswerving that he stayed by his owner's side even after his master's death. Attending the man's funeral, Greyfriars Bobby then remained in the graveyard that housed the man's mortal remains until his own death fully 14 years later! GRADE: As issued very clean cover. 40846
