September 29, 1951: Shermy's dog?


In this strip, it seems that Shermy is Snoopy's owner.

I like this one for the cross-hatching work on the rain in the second and third panels. It's just a really cool effect!

  1. I always thought it seemed like Shermy was Snoopy's owner in the beginning. But maybe Schulz didn't really determine it either. He probably didn't dream that we would all be looking at these early strips 50 years later trying to figure it out. But regardless, once he realized Snoopy and Charlie Brown were the stars and couldn't figure out a clever angle for Shermy, it would be logical for the storylines to make CB the owner.
