At times, a pink tongue hangs out between pointy teeth. Marlene Barnes dresses and poses her pets against backdrops that hang in the living room of her Jarrettsville home. She has converted the space into a photo studio and made it the hub of her greeting-card business. Her company - Dogonfunny Creations - is built around three dogs, all of which she and her husband rescued.

GOOD GRIEF! Such was the reaction of Jane Soverns on hearing that Charles Schulz, the cartoonist and creator of Snoopy and the "Peanuts" comic strip, was retiring. Schulz's last new strip will be published Feb. 13, but there will be no retirement for Snoopy -- at least at St. John Cooperative Nursery School on West Maple Road, where he is the longtime mascot. As soon as school director Soverns heard the news, she decided to have a Salute to Charles Schulz Week. Last week, children in five classes celebrated Snoopy with craft activities, videos, stories and food, all centered on the beloved beagle.

After nearly half a century of entertaining and inspiring generations of cartoon connoisseurs, "Peanuts" creator Charles M. Schulz announced last month that he had decided to end his popular comic strip. The final original daily "Peanuts" strip runs today (See Page 6E), and the final original Sunday strip will appear Feb. 13. The Sun will begin running classic "Peanuts" strips tomorrow. In recent e-mails, faxes and letters to The Sun, devoted readers of the "Peanuts" strip shared their recollections of the cartoon and told how, for many, a daily helping of Snoopy, Charlie Brown and the rest of the "Peanuts" gang became a way of life.

Amazing, isn't it, that it took a cartoon beagle to teach most Americans what little they came to know of the First World War. Or that culturally illiterate baby boomers who confuse "Madame Butterfly" with Iron Butterfly can pick Ludwig van Beethoven's face out a lineup in a heartbeat, thanks to a cartoon pianist whose toy piano had a bust of the composer's dour visage perched atop it. Where would we be without Snoopy, Schroeder, Charlie Brown and...

I vaguely remember sitting at his kitchen table in Mahwah, New Jersey, telling my brother Tom how much I hated cats. But here was my brother telling me that his future second wife was a cat lover. I prefer dogs, I said. She's beautiful, he said.The one dog in his life had been a mistake, the result of a father's yearning to capture on film the delights of a daughter's face presed against the window at the mall pet store.Long before the dog was buried in a one-gallon Baggie under a back-yard gravestone, Elizabeth had wisely shifted her emotional allegiance to Snoopy -- ageless, immortal and stuffed.

Charles M. Schulz's "Peanuts" gang was everywhere in the 1960s, as you baby boomers might recall.Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder and the rest frequently turned up on greeting cards, sweat shirts, commercials, lunch boxes, TV specials and feature films, as well as in books, rock songs, ("Snoopy Versus the Red Baron" by The Royal Guardsmen, remember?) and even a fascinating published dissertation from the University of Chicago School of Divinity entitled "The Gospel According to Peanuts."
