September 6, 1951: Another dog?!


It's a dog other than Snoopy or his brothers! This strip establishes that, for now at least, Snoopy is noticeably smaller than other dogs.


  1. It's always weird to see another animal in the comics. Aside from Freida's cat, Snoopy and his brothers, and the various birds, other creatures seem really alien.

    For a while in the late fifties (or possibly the early sixties?) they printed some Peanuts stories in comic books by ghostwriters that featured some oddball moments. The weirdest one that comes to mind involved Lucy being so annoyed at Snoopy's penguin impressions that she actually went and dumped him at the zoo with REAL penguins!

  2. Smaller, yes, but I thought he was supposed to be a puppy at this point. He's certainly adorable.
