Robert Day: Dogs I've Known...

A 1947 ad for Gro-Pup dog food, a product made by Kellogg's, is illustrated by cartoonist Robert Day. Entitled Dogs I've Known..., the ad features three general types of dog: finicky eater, lazybones, and contented playmate. It should be no surprise for the contemporary reader to learn that each would do well on a diet of Gro-Pup. The tag line is "Dogs go for Gro-Pup." Ads for Gro-Pup were common from the 1930s to the 1960s.
