Snoopy is a cartoon character in the long-running comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. He is the pet beagle of Charlie Brown.
Snoopy loves sleeping, and being lazy, often lies on top of his doghouse and sleeps, sometimes all day long.

One of his hobbies is reading Leo Tolstoy’s epic novel War and Peace at the rate of “a word a day”.
Snoopy also has ability to play fetch with soap bubbles, and can hear someone eating marshmallows or cookies at a distance, or even peeling a banana. He claims to hear chocolate chip cookies calling him.
Things Snoopy dislikes are listening to balloons being squeezed, hates coconut candy and cats. The only thing that upsets him is a lack of supper.
Snoopy has imagined himself as various different animals, as well having various professions.
Snoopy’s fantasy roles are the same. Snoopy performing the respective role for each one, and almost always failing at what he does. He imagined himself as a “famous” writer (his extremely short “novels” are never published, and the two-paragraph one that managed to get published failed to sell), attorney, hockey player, a professional skater and a world famous grocery clerk who work from the top of his doghouse. He also imagined himself as an astronaut, claiming to be the first beagle on the moon in his dreams.
The famous of his imaginary role is The World War I Flying Ace, and he calls his imaginary enemy the Red Baron.
