I think these pictures need an explanation.
Yeah, I know it’s Wordless Wednesday. So sue me.
Snoopy is a Beagle?
In the Charlie Brown comic strip, Snoopy was always described as a Beagle.
I didn’t get it. He had that huge bulbous nose and he was all white. There was nothing about Snoopy that said “Beagle” to me.
But now that I’m living with a Beagle mix (meet my foster dog, Layla), I understand.
In the first picture, you’ll see Layla doing her best imitation of Snoopy’s vulture pose.
No, she doesn’t quite have Snoopy’s menacing glare. But she sure has that slumpy posture down. And she’ll sit like this for minutes at a time.
In the second picture, you’ll see that Layla likes hanging out on top of the couch. Just like Snoopy hangs out on top of his dog house. She’ll even curl up and sleep there, just like Snoopy.
So maybe it’s not looks that make you a Beagle. Maybe it’s behavior.
And in that case, Snoopy really is a Beagle after all. Just like Layla.
