Dear Abby - Vintage Dogs at the Beach

Hi friends!

It is almost the 4th of July, so I thought I would share some pictures of dogs enjoying the beach!  These are all vintage advertisements.  I like them, and hope you will too.

This is a famous advertisement of a Cocker Spaniel and a little girl (1960's).  It advertises Coppertone suntan lotion.


The next two ads feature a Scottie dog and Westie advertising Black and White Scottish whiskey.



This handsome English bulldog advertises Four Roses Society.  (It looks like he is also having a picnic!)


This Kodak ad features a majestic Great Dane with a baby at the beach.


This 1950's advertisement, for Jantzen swimwear, also features a cute Beagle!



A little Poodle is enjoying the beach in this Pepsi advertisement. 


This is the oldest of the advertisements  A little girl and a Jack Russell Terrier (or JRT mix) are watching a ship.  The ad is for Southern Pacific Steamships.  


I hope you have enjoyed these vintage ads, and I also hope you have a fun 4th of July!  Do you have special plans for the holiday?  And if you have pets, do they enjoy participating in the holiday too?   I enjoy spending time with my Momma, friends, and family.  At night I get lots of cuddling and attention because I don't like fireworks!

Thanks for visiting!  Have a great weekend.


Love,

I love these so much! I have always loved the classic Coppertone ad, but I think my favorite out of these is the Great Dane with the baby. So cute!

Oh my gosh, that first Coppertone sunscreen ad blares in my mind when I think about summertime as a child! We used to use that all the time (until I found out I was reallyyyyy allergic to it!)

That Coppertone sunscreen ad is such a classic! I took my oldest dog to the beach once. He was not impressed lol.

We haven't gotten to the beach this summer yet but I can't wait to get there. These vintage ads definitely make me want to make my way there faster.

So cute! I know I've seen the Coppertone ad before, and the Kodak one, too. They definitely get your attention!
