Yes, a matched set of warm puppy happiness from Robin and Finchy's dad. There's nothing to tell us about these two people, but that's the same house, and definitely the same dog. He looks like he has a gorgeous brindle coat. Perhaps he's just extra-shiny? Look at the photo with the young woman and enjoy his little paws dangling in midair. Not exactly perfect puppy clutching procedure, but she's trying. Winsome little fellow.
I think this must be the thirties, perhaps the early forties, guessing roughly from the clothing.
