Dale began his cartooning career as a teenager, doing various illustrated work for newspapers such as Glasgow Evening News. In the early 1920s, while living in Chicago, Dale created the comic strip The Doo Dads, which ran in several Canadian newspapers throughout the decade and reportedly also enjoyed success in merchandising. According to comics historian Bill Blackbeard, The Doo Dads seems to have been heavily influenced by the critically acclaimed comic strip Krazy Kat.

Dale retired in 1954, after working as a freelance artist at Free Press for several decades.
