This Story Has Three Nut Grafs

By: E&P Staff

The winner of a contest seeking the weight in peanuts of cartoonist Patrick McDonnell’s real-life dog Earl was only two goobers off.

Earl — the model for the canine co-star of McDonnell’s King Features Syndicate strip — weighs 2,662 in peanuts (just over 15 pounds). Angie Gray finished first among thousands of entrants by guessing 2,664 peanuts.

The contest (E&P Online, Aug. 9) was designed to celebrate the “Top Dogs: Comic Canines Before and After Snoopy” exhibit running until Sept. 26 at the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, Calif. McDonnell is curating the show.
