but can the watch-beagle stay up late? he’ll probably doze off at the first few minutes
hang in there Patty’
Poor Patty. She has narcolepsy.
I remember this comic.
Times were sure different back then.
Be on your guard against this one, PP! :D
But now she has Snoopy the Watch-Beagle! All will turn out fine as Snoopy saves the day, er…night.
This is a sad one today. God bless Peppermint Patty & all children everywhere.
Don’t kids that age usually have babysitters when their parents can’t be home?
I didn’t know Peppermint Patty was so scared of being alone.
At least back then, TV was worth watching…
Is this the genesis of Pastis’ Little Guard Duck?
Time for Snoopy to fail the day. Seriously, he’s gonna blow this big time, even for him.
CB’s a good friend, so caring
I think a friend beagle might be better. If he falls asleep on patrol, he fails; but, if he falls asleep with his head in Patty’s lap, his warmth and presence will still be calming.
where is her mother?
Where I taught school school we had a kindergarten student who kept falling asleep during the day. We found out his single mom worked as a night janitor/cleaner, and she had to take him to work with her because she had no other options.
Or, a cuddle dog.
If I remember from my childhood days. Wasn’t there a cartoon episode where Snoopy goes and guards her house and the next thing you know he is engaged to a poodle? lol
Is that a bayonet?
Snoopy isn’t exactly famous for being wide awake himself.
Today’s watch beagles carry machine guns
Night job? As in all night? You would be soooo busted today.
Everyone who is asking how she can be left alone: THIS IS WHY so many parents (especially single parents)can not find jobs, that will pay enough for them to pay for child care. They are damned if they do, damned if they don’t.
Oh wait, I see they’re already fixed. Okay, stand down.
I have to wonder where Snoopy got the rifle and bayonet.
This is just a cartoon however how many children are in this situation like Patty it’s so sad.
Is that a musket Snoopy is carrying?
I feel so sad for this little girl. Even though it’s all fictional and written decades ago, I still want to hug her and offer her peace and safety…
