"He's Your Dog, Charlie Brown!"

Charles M. Schulz, World Publishing Co, 1968

I have a few different Charlie Brown books, but this one is my favorite. In this one all the kids are fed up with Snoopy's antics and Charlie Brown sends him back to Daisy Hill Puppy Farm for obedience training. My favorite parts are the ones with Peppermint Patty-- how she thinks he's a funny looking kid, how she ends up waiting on him hand and foot, how when Charlie Brown actually dares to leash him, he gets free and makes amends with Peppermint Patty. The very best is the reunion scene between boy and dog. The happy dance. Here are some of the images in the book.
I forgot it was a film too. Of course, they all are, aren't they? If you are curious, you can watch it here. (it's in three parts)
