PET MADNESS WINNER: SNOOPY
And… now we have a winner. Snoopy takes the roses.
Once we began this wild experience, I truthfully had no inkling who would possibly win. However when Snoopy handily defeated the lazy, carb-loving Garfield after which narrowly nudged out broomstick-balancing Jiji, I started to suspect he might go the gap. Nonetheless, I discover it attention-grabbing that this daydreaming yard beagle beat out three verified heroes – Miyazaki’s purple elk Yakul, Tolkien’s large wolfhound Huan, and Harry’s beloved owl Hedwig – two of whom, by the way, died defending their human pal. And but voters went with the basis beer sipping anthropomorphic canine. As a literary crowd, did we respect his dedication to studying the whole lot of Struggle and Peace? Did we relate to his battle to write down the nice American novel? The dance strikes? Or maybe it’s the multigenerational bonding we worth. Who else can reliably go away you, your mother and father, your grandparents, and possibly even your personal youngsters crying into their bittersweet scorching cocoa each vacation season when A Charlie Brown Christmas rolls round on tv?
Of Snoopy, Charles M. Schulz as soon as mirrored, “He can win or lose, be a catastrophe, a hero, or something, and but all of it works out.” Maybe we see ourselves in Snoopy. We’re not on the market wrestling werewolves or combating loss of life eaters. We’re simply making an attempt to do our greatest, eat some good meals, present up for mates, and hope all of it works out.
Or possibly all of us simply actually love canines.
Brush Up on Previous Rounds
Will or not it’s Snoopy, the multi-generational canine king of comedian strips? He of the bulbous nostril and realizing gaze. Snoopy is an imaginative beagle, a annoyed author, skilled napper, and a bittersweet thinker. Beneficiant with the smooches, this man’s gratitude for dinner and ubiquitous blissful dance swells the human coronary heart. Or will or not it’s Hedwig, the magical snowy owl, resplendent in white feathers? She of the piercing yellow eyes and unfathomable potential to search out anybody, anyplace. Clever and proud, at all times able to bestow a reproachful look or affectionate nip on the boy she died defending. Neither snow, nor rain, nor warmth, nor gloom might preserve her from her goal.

Max, the Grinch’s reluctant sidekick survived a sarcastic parrot, a conniving feline, and a literal monster, solely to face probably the most iconic birds in literature – the Hedwig of Harry Potter fame. Direwolf Ghost nearly made it. Someplace on the market, Jon Snow is wanting north, with a stoic tear in his eye.
