CROATIA ~ Dalmatian dog ~

For a dog lover a fantastic card...one of my favorites out of the postcards I received lately...a dalmatian dog overlooking the deep blue see...maybe one of the 101 dalmatian dogs that ran away from dalmatia into one of the most famous disney's cartoons^__^...Big Thaaaaaaanks to my postcard friend-blogger Agi!!

With lovely stamps too:

Dalmatia is a historical region on the eastern coast of the Adriatic Sea. It stretches from the island of Rab in the northwest to the Bay of Kotor in the southeast. The hinterland, the Dalmatian Zagora, ranges from fifty kilometers in width in the north to just a few kilometers in the south.

The Dalmatian is a breed of dog whose roots trace back to Croatia and its historical region of Dalmatia. The Dalmatian is noted for its unique black or liver spotted coat and was mainly used as a carriage dog in its early days.

  1. :))) lucky for us a dog breed was named after our region, otherwise it would have been close to impossible finding a dog postcard xD

  4. What a great card. I see them quite rarely nowadays - they seemed more popular in my youth.

  5. Has to be recognised as a clever card even when one is not specifically a huge fan of all dogs :)

  6. I didn't know that Dalmatia was a geographical location until now! Oh my, my ignorance! Haha. I remember thoroughly rooting for the dalmatian puppies during their great escape from Cruela de Ville. I wanted a dalmatian as pet after watching that movie!

  7. I think this is more than a dog postcard, because of the connection to the place. I like this!
