Dog 'n Suds Doggy Bag

Now here's something you don't see every day:  a vintage Dog 'n Suds wrapper. It's fairly big, about 5 3/4" wide by 8" long, and printed on a shiny foil bag. I guess it was designed to hold anything from a coney dog to a charco burger.
   I always liked the Dog 'n Suds dog. (According to the corporate website, his name is Rover.) As a kid, I thought he looked like a less goofy-looking Goofy.
   Although the Rover on classic Dog 'n Suds signs hasn't changed, for some reason the corporate decision makers were constantly tinkering with his appearance in ads. By the 1970s, his appearance had gone to the dogs (at right).
