The times when there's a baby on hand for Snoopy to wordlessly react with are relatively short when compared to the length of Peanuts, which is a shame because I think they're among the funniest, most whimsical strips of its run. Snoopy develops a great double-team act with Sally when she arrives on the scene.
Snoopy's head drawn in profile in panel 5 is archetypal Snoopy. There is just a hint of the direction the character would be taken in later there.
