    Will she want a pat on the back when she urinates outdoors?

    It really is a shame that Patty has finally found a school she likes and that really fits her needs and yet, as she will later discover, doesn’t fit her needs :(

    I bet she doesn’t like the treats they give her.

    OK, OK: this is a comic strip in which a dog can play baseball and tennis and write novels on a typewriter. I know. However, somehow, I have always found this particular arc overly preposterous. Peppermint Patty has been made a great deal too dumb here for the sake of the joke: if she was genuinely as stupid as this she wouldn’t be able to exist in society at all. On the other hand, the adults come over as being borderline abusive in allowing this to happen in the first place. Where is her Dad? He either leaves Patty alone in the house for weeks at a time, or else he doesn’t take the trouble to see what school she has enrolled in with his money – doesn’t sound like a remotely responsible or loving parent at all. It is unimaginable that the dog trainers would go along with this, too: and it does not reflect well on Charlie Brown and Marcie that they haven’t tried harder to make Patty see sense. But, of course, this is a comic strip, and I am taking it too seriously :) I have obsessively adored Peanuts ever since I was as young as Rerun, and I do not mean to criticize Schulz’s work (but just to have fun discussing it).

    Sir, you are such a blockhead. You still haven’t figured out it’s a pet training school.

    which reminds me of today’s Word of the day over at dictionary (dot) com:

    Pavlovian: [ pav-loh-vee-uhn]/adjective

    of, relating to, or characteristic of Pavlov or his work, especially of experiments in which he elicited predictable responses from laboratory animals.

    I HATE being patted on the head. I guess it goes with being short.

    This is still before she found out that Snoopy’s a dog, right?

    Looking at some of the previous comments. What is the date of the comic? Looks like 1976, Schulz would write and draw things that might have happened 6 to 8 months before. So what was happening in 1975 thru 1976 that would give him some of these ideas.

    I’m not familiar with this story arc, but I can predict its ending: PP finally realizes she’s at dog obedience school, gets mad at Chuck for not telling her.

    Proving that PP truly cannot tell humans apart from dogs. She’s being treated as a dog now and accepts it.

    If they rub your tummy, you should probably notify the authorities.

    In the end, it is a FUNNY cartoon based on habits and thoughts of people, a fictional dog, with many great points on life thrown in to laugh at. And as far as being too dumb, there are many people today who get a pass and subsidized by the rest of us. Then add the lazy and you have millions.

    when she graduates,she’ll get to be the mascot for a pro sports dream come true.

    I saw a Minor League New Jersey baseball team that trained a retriever to bring bats to home plate to give to the leadoff man.

    At least she is getting a positive attitude about learning ….. even if it’s for dog obedience …… :)

    After reading most of these comments, I reread the strip. What I find rather poignant (and sad) is that Patty really appreciates being patted on the head when she is “a good girl”. ¡Pobrecita niña!
