Beginning with Black label, dog on side re-issues, side 1 and side 2 switch. Where side 1 on the Black label, dog on top becomes side 2 on the Black label, dog on side and the orange labels. The cover does not reflect this change.

The dog on side re-issue is a sleeper. This one is rarely seen. I would bet it is one of the rarest dog on side EPA re-issues.
