February 1, 1951: Candy isn't good for dogs

More Snoopy cuteness.  With his tongue in panel two and his head-tilt in panel 3, he's very puppy-like here.  Schulz is known to have said that, once Snoopy developed a personality and began living in his own fantasy world, ordinary dog jokes became progressively less-suitable for him.

Snoopy's design is so winning in the early days that I'm sure there's a market for Classic Peanuts Snoopy toys, in the same way you can get stuff with the original, un-Disneyfied Pooh characters on them.

By the way kids, please do not feed your own dogs candy. Chocolate is really bad for them!
