Is Snoopy A Boy Or Girl

Woodstock was first seen in the strip in 1967 but was named in 1970 after the summer music festival. Schulz originally considered the bird to be a female—but after the naming on June 22, 1970, it incidentally changed to be a male.

Snoopy’s fiancée was never seen in the comic strip. But when the storyline became the basis for the 1985 TV special, Snoopy’s Getting Married, Charlie Brown, she’s both seen and given a name—Genevieve.

Snoopy’s birthday was acknowledged in a strip that ran on Aug. 10, 1968. It is unclear whether that was his first-ever birthday; if so, that would make him 47 years old, 329 in dog years.
