Dogs were always part of Charles Schulz’s life, and he and his wife, Jean, also championed the working dogs among us: the canines who assist the disabled, search for and rescue people affected by disasters, give help to first responders, herd livestock, and offer us their unconditional love. In this new exhibition the Museum celebrates these four-legged heroes as Schulz portrayed them in Peanuts. With Snoopy’s many personas – Attorney, Flying Ace, Grocery Clerk, Hired Hand – Schulz paid tribute to how much better life is when we share the working day with dogs.
