I have been unable to identify the following picture.  The only clue
that I have been able to uncover is that it might be "Trapper the
Dog", but even with that tidbit of information no one seems to be able
to identify where the picture is from or who/what Trapper is.

The picture is at the following location since Google Answers does not
appear to let me attach a picture to the question:

I want to know what this cartoon is from with references that I can
lookup either online or in a book, etc.

Two things:

1.  What is on the flip side of the picture?  I can see some text
through the may provide a contextual clue (e.g. give an idea
of the date).  Can you post an image of the reverse side?

2.  How did you come across this picture?  What leads you to believe
it might be 'Trapper' the dog?  Any additional information as to
context might be the clue needed to crack the case.

The origin of this picture is from a trivia contest that occurred back
in April of 2005.  The answer was given as "Trapper", but since all my
research has still been unable to find anything to confirm this
answer, I decided to post it here.  Out of the 400+ teams that
participated in the contest, only a handful knew the answer and they
haven't said how they knew it.  At this time its just a personal quest
to find out what the picture is from.

The text that you can see is just from the other side of the paper and
definately would yield no clues about the picture of the dog.
There is no answer at this time.

any contest has to be undewritten for authenticity and validness of
answer.  If not anyone could have a contest and fake the results for
the need.  Please contact the company that used the promotional
contest and they must have the resources to backup what they say. 
Please it is not a hard task, just call where ever you obtained this
image, back track the info and you may uncover a fraud in this contest
of sorts if not valid, and if it was a national contest, then their
has to be an underwriter for any issuance or imdeminification if
"something" goes wrong in the contest.

Also if the image does have a name then this is a logoed image to a
company and if it is a animation media based entertainment, then it is
copyrighted.  You can find all this out from questioning the promoter
of this past contest

There are no cash prizes for this contest, thus no underwriting or
indemnification really needed.  The contest question writers will not
discuss the sources for their questions, but will throw out questions
if two independant sources verify that an answer is wrong.

In this particular case, zero known sources exist, so it's hard to
refute the given answer which was "Trapper".  The contest for 2005 is
over anyway, so this isn't about proving the answer to be wrong, its
just about trying to find out where Trapper is from for the sake of
