Welcome to our Fifth installment of our monthly series in a series , our lookbacls at Charlie Brown specials that are not holiday specials. This time we take a look at "He's Your Dog ,Charlie Brown"
"So?" Copyright Peanuts
This special came out on Valentine's Day in 1968 , it is noted for being the last special where at least some of the members were voices from the Christmas special. (Darn kids, getting all old)
It begins with Snoopy going around our characters and annoying them so much they complain to Charlie Brown because "He's Your Dog! " (One of these Days , Alice, Charlie Brown is going to get rich and be spiteful toward Lucy , but will marry Marcy) So Charlie Brown calls Daisy Hill Puppy Farm ( who didn't pay for this segment , but where do you get your puppies?) so he can learn some obedience.
Snoopy has to stay at Peppermint Patty's house ( we like her , she's not a jerk ) because it's a long distance to the farm. ( this time not code for doggy heaven) On his way Snoopy does some cool 1960's stuff like kick a can (also not doggy heaven) , run a stick through a fence ( Dennis the Beagle) , and balance a stick on his nose. ( That's what they thought you in Middle School , this is a lie)

Anyway ,Snoopy Makes to Peppermint Patty's house (coming to NBC ) , the next day things take a turn (No TV and no beer makes Snoopy...? no?) every one back at home notices how quiet things are with out him , but Snoopy has decided not to go to the farm and he stays with Peppermint Patty. (Charlie Brown should have really checked this plan) He stays there a week so far and the farm calls Charlie Brown telling him that Snoopy hasn't shown up. (hmm not the best system) he also finds out that he's still at Peppermint Patty's and that Snoopy is using her a servant. (Why didn't Peppermint Patty call , CB?) Snoopy escapes from Charlie Brown when he tries and gets him and goes back to Peppermint Patty. Though she makes rules for him , he has to do chores for the house , while everyone else is missing him. (Also Snoopy hates leashes) For a note: Lucy misses Snoopy , that doesn't happen much. Meanwhile Snoopy enraged about doing chores and breaks some , so Peppermint makes him sleep in the garage. He makes his escape .

He goes back to Charlie Brown's ( also his ) home and he and C.B get are happy to see each other again and their classic dance. (the Tango?)
That's the episode with some spoilers (mean ) I liked this special ,especially Snoopy's imagination that he is an French rest stop in World War 1. Also it's very different to see Lucy miss Snoopy and be glad that he is back , that's a nice one.
