Three Cheers for Bunky

September 28, 1947
Los Angeles

Bunky’s a tiny poodle mix puppy whose mistress, Mrs. Marguerite Lawson, is even more fond of today. That’s because the foundling, an adoptee from the SPCA, savagely attacked the strange man who attempted to mash Mrs. Lawson as she walked home from a market near her home at 1325 S. Dewey Ave. Saturday night. Bunky reacted with the courage of a much larger (and less fluffy) canine, and when the rotter released his hold on Mrs. Lawson to lunge for Bunky, lady and Bunky got away.
