The (slightly garbled) caption identifies this fancy dog as celebrity canine Rin Tin Tin, making the publicity rounds in 1956:
Ah, this really living! says Rin Tin Tin, the showman of canine-dome who visited Chicago for a personal appearance and a preview of show a political delegate will survive a convention. Walter Golemo, waiter of the Sheraton-Blackstone, serves the famous dog his dinner in his room in Chicago, June 8, 1956.
The Internet has increased the volume and velocity of dumb-as-hell new stories, but they certainly aren’t a new phenomenon.
