Yes, sir. I'll tell them. Uh-huh. Hm?

The coloneI thought

you were pretty good last night.

But he thinks you can do even better.

The coloneI says we need a trapeze act.


Okay, Hugo, you catch.


Okay, Hugo,

now flip her back to the trapeze.

This is a great act.

We'll knock them dead.

What do you think you'll do...

...if Snoopy doesn't come back

from the circus?

I haven't even thought about it.

Sometimes I wonder

why people love pets in the first place.

People buy pets for strange reasons.

How did you happen to get Snoopy,

Charlie Brown?

Well, I'm not quite sure

because I was kind of young.

I think it started because of something

that happened at the playground.

I was playing in the sandbox

with a couple of other kids.

I can't even remember who they were.

Anyway, all of a sudden... of them poured a whole bucket

of sand all over my head.

I started crying, I guess.

And my mother came running up

and took me home.

It's kind of embarrassing now

to talk about it.

Anyway, the next day, we drove out

to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm...

...and my mom and dad

bought me a dog.

You were right, Charlie Brown.

People do buy pets for strange reasons.

But what if Snoopy

does stay with the circus?

What if he doesn't come back?

That's such a horrible thought,

I can't even deaI with it.

What in the world are you doing?

Since Snoopy

is obviously not coming back...

...we're closing down his house.

What do you mean,

he's not coming back?






Yes, sir.

Yes, sir, coloneI.
