Wish You Were Here, from Dwig

Here’s another Dwig card, this one from Tuck’s Cheer Up Series, less colorfully known as Series 176. This card was postally used in 1911.

Looks like that pup is pretty pleased with himself for taking a bite out of the corner of the card. Bad dog!

  1. Shouldn't it have said,"The worse you think of the WURST?" Perhaps the inclusion of the mutt alludes to a popular conception of the day, that sausage makers regularly included a helping of Fido as an inexpensive "Filler" in the mix with the other "by-products." Maybe the term "Hot Dogs" was more truth in advertising than we want to assume.
