brothers from different mothers

recently, i have been thinking a lot about spike, snoopy's brother. snoopy was very important to me in my youth, and his brother spike was always a mysterious figure to me. he lived in the desert. a draft-dodging hippie, i'm pretty sure he made a stoner folk album in '71. i did some research on the subject, and came up with this shocker: snoopy had some other brothers, too. and they visited him in the hospital. as seen above. and as you can also see, spike was the philosopher of the bunch. i heard he partied with ram dass at esalen. not least is the fact that these dudes are telepathic and communicate via thought. obviously, all characters and images are copyright Peanuts or Charles Schultz or whatever.
