 Postcard (c. 1950) showing Calo of Shamrock Calo dog food was based in East Oakland, California
 The card reads "This Irish Wolfhound is a member of the largest breed of dog ever to walk this earth. They have been recorded in history since the year 500 AD and have served mankind as battle dogs, wolf hunters supreme (with speeds up to 30 miles per hour), and of course draft animals of great strength and intelligence. "CALO of Shamrock" is 35 inches in height and weighs 150 pounds. The alert canine riders in the front seat are "Crepes Suzette", a poodle, and "Zorina", a Toy Turkish Greyhound. A diet of nutritious CALO DOG FOOD keeps these famous show dogs healthy and eager for public service at all times."
