What? I missed National Puppy Day!

No way I could let this occasion pass without a post, especially because Enoch painted more covers with turtles than puppies.  On the cover of this 1930 issue of Pep Stories our Bolles girl giving her Pekingese first dibs in the bath, not that he looks particularly pleased about it. While you may rate this cover as lukewarm the interior of the magazine was so hot that it was yanked (briefly) from the newsstands. When it returned Bolles had moved on and soon Earle Bergey began his long run of covers.
