The first two cards look like Bonzo, a famous cartoon dog, from which the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band took their name. However, wiki tells me that Bonzo was first created in 1922 by George Studdy, and yours reads 1910 by A. Blue at the bottom.
But the resemblance is very close!

This image is a card glued to the cover of the Bonzo Band's 1972 album 'Let's make up and be friendly'

These cards was produced shortly after legislation was passed about private post cards and the USPS wanting in on the lost revenue from them competing with their postal cards but soon relented. Something like that anyway...lol

Not a puppy card, but rather a weirdly captioned signed unused doggie card.

Man's best friend had a good friend as expressed by the artwork on the shown postcard by Denver artist and postcard publisher Vincent V. Colby. The caption would make an excellent slogan for a rescue group. Too bad about the missing stamp but with this card it is the artwork for me.

I LOVE the "ALL I DID WAS GROWL A LITTLE" by V. Colby! It is one of my very favorite post cards.
I've been on a mission to purchase one of these at a reasonable price.
And I learned about the Bonzo post cards, too. I'll keep my eyes open for those also.
Thank you for sharing all of the above post cards!
