Very clever, those English. An English Bulldog though would have been more appropriate:

All well and good but black scotch terriers were renowned in history for bringing bad luck. Just kidding!

From what I gather Valentine's was a publisher based in Dundee Scotland

Boy, do I remember those from my childhood. Almost every Dutch town sold one of these in their tourism office. I wonder if IkeyPikey collects these?

This souvenir letter card of mine is a fore-runner of the Good Luck one and it dates from 1938. A concertina of 6 photo views of (named town) was attached to the inside and the back of those views could be written on if required at Letter Rate cost of 1d. Otherwise the card could be sent unsealed and unwritten for a halfpenny.



The 1950 Southampton card is obviously Scottish in manufacture with the tartan bow, the white heather and the Scottie dog... just the named town/city changes to suit the locations.
