There are a few strips that notice a basic similarity between the behavior of very little kids and dogs, and by my reckoning this is the first. I seem to remember a few strips that played this up when Sally comes on the scene, when she and Snoopy team up to steal Linus' blanket.
Why is the noise of Snoopy licking depicted as "smack," and why is it in a word balloon?
When characters stoop over, like Lucy is in panel three, it seems easy to imagine them unfolding their legs and ending up much taller than they should be.
