Hey dirty dog no bodys going to want to sit on the couch?
My all time favorite Snoopy strip! Love the sarcasm
I never owned a dog, but definitely good grief to Sally Brown’s “touched the dog; rewash your hands.”
as good as a strip can be
I did the same joke to my sister once.
Sally became so disrespectful towards Snoopy as the years passed.
I’ll take Snoopy’s fuzzy cooties any time!
Lucy’s replacement ?
Later, Sally developed an obsession about not letting the food on her plate touch.
He’s an adorable dog, but, you still have to wash your hands after petting. No offence, but … they do come covered in dirt and they tend to roll around in things you don’t wanna think about.
Yet dogs’ mouths are way cleaner than humans’.
LOL! My cats must feel the same way about humans. Every time I pet them or hold them, they walk a bit away and then start cleaning themselves! (I’ve read that cats do this because they like to “taste” their humans the same way that mother cats taste their kittens when they clean them. Not sure I believe that…)
Get her Snoopy !!!!! 8^)
Touched the dog – What was the BUBONIC PLAGUE like?
I finally understand…….Lucy grew up and married me.
The worst one I remember in my case is, a friend’s mom was washing dishes in the sink. I stuck my fingers in her hot soapy water to clean off my fruit sticky fingers, and her mom got mad and said I ruined her dish water and she drained the whole thing and started over. I’ve never liked that woman since. And it happened over 50 years ago. And she is still alive, too.
@summerdogFriend’s mom sounds like a nut job. How do you “ruin” dish water?
The title panel refers to Leviticus Chapter 13 on dealing with leprosy:45 The leper who has the disease shall wear torn clothes and let the hair of his head hang loose, and he shall cover his upper lip and cry, ‘Unclean, unclean.’46 He shall remain unclean as long as he has the disease; he is unclean; he shall dwell alone in a habitation outside the camp.Snoopy is not repenting, but is expressing his feelings of being considered an outcast by Sally.
How come all the girls in this strip are bossy?
I like the introduction panel.
I’m with you! I love animals, but I can’t even stand to watch the face licking on television!
I’ve been petting my dogs before dinner and letting them lick me for decades. I’m still not dead and I’m extremely healthy. I honestly can’t even remember the last cold I had. In fact, there’s something to be said for getting dirty. It has actually been said it boosts your immune system, by introducing you to microbes. And additionally, items that kill ‘99%’ of the germs leave the strongest 1% to multiply! You’re not as clean as you thought, and your reasoning is the reason why we’re having so many problems with antibiotics these days!
True. What we think of today as “leprosy” referred to a number of skin diseases.
Sorry, Sally… You should have kept it buttoned.
You never know what that sweet little innocent beagle is capable of.
You walked right into that one, Sally. Go Snoopy!
I’ve had lots of dogs over the years…shared my food with them, slept with them, walked them, taught them tricks, etc. I’m more afraid of getting sick from the chemicals we put on them than of any germs they might carry. I have never once gotten sick from a cat, dog or bird. One dog I had did get ringworm from….my husband!
Sally never heard the phrase that one can be “too clean”. Having antibodies from slight exposure, like vaccination, helps repel disease.
@hariseldon59 Agreed. This is my favorite Sunday strip with Snoopy. No matter how many times I see it, it always makes me laugh. The third to the last panel with “Bubonic Plague” Snoopy is absolutely hysterical!
This is a great strip. In this one, Sally is just like my mother.
geez Sally’s bossy like Lucy, eh?!!…but I can stand Sally better she funny, eh?!!!…..remember this Peanuts’ strip!!!..in it she was writing a story ‘he was a rich cowboy he had a car and a horse he put his car in the carport and he put his horse in the horseport’ lol!!!!!…funny huh??!!!…that was funny the way Snoopy was doing her huh?!!!..all cause she said touched the dog
oops that should be remember this Peanuts’ strip??!!!!!!
Sigh. Sally needs to learn that there’s a huge difference between touching a strange animal and playing with your own pet.
I’ve been scratched by my cats more than I care to think about, but there’s no way I would handle a stray without leather gloves and a heavy jacket. I know mine don’t have rabies, but there’s no telling about a strange animal.
