Upon arriving at Lila's home, however, Snoopy finds out that not only does Lila already have a pet of her own in the form of a beloved cat, but that her apartment has a "No Dogs Allowed" policy. Freed of his obligations, Snoopy joyfully runs back home and into the arms of Charlie Brown and company who welcome him back joyfully. The happiness lasts for a few minutes until he gets a swelled head and demand that they give back all the things he gave them before moving or he'll sue them, upon which everyone but Charlie Brown leaves Snoopy in disgust[[note]]Lucy: "All right, Charlie Brown! From now on, he's your dog and you're welcome to him!!"[[/note]] (though he does leave a few moments later in disgust as well when Snoopy has let Woodstock type in the ending credits).

It is also, unquestionably, the most [[TearJerker depressing and heart-wrenching]] thing in the ''Peanuts'' franchise. If there was a trope called "Crowning Moment of Tearjerking", this film would win fairly easily. (This was probably due to creator Charles M. Schulz having just gone through a depressing divorce, [[CreatorBreakdown and decided to take it out here]].)

To summarize: The plot begins with Snoopy experiencing dissatisfaction with his life amongst the other characters, as numerous "[[RunningGag NO DOGS ALLOOOOOOOOOOWED]]" signs have recently been put up around the town, resulting in Snoopy being kicked out of most public places. After this, Snoopy attempts to get the attention of Charlie Brown and the other kids, only to be rejected or shrugged-off in one way or another.

Snoopy then receives a letter from his ''original'' owner, Lila, whom he only spent two months with as a puppy before he was sent back to the Daisy Hill Puppy Farm because Lila's family moved. The letter informs Snoopy that Lila [[LittlestCancerPatient is in the hospital]] and wishes to see Snoopy again. Snoopy and Woodstock immediately leave town to visit her without explaining. They go on a somewhat surreal journey across the country and engage in silent shenanigans.

* AdaptationExpansion: Adapted from a series of strips where Snoopy went missing to visit Lila in hospital. The strips did have the angst of Charlie Brown losing Snoopy and discovering he wasn't Snoopy's original owner, but there was never any question of whether Snoopy would stay with Lila or return to Charlie--that was added by the film.

* KarmaHoudini: Clara got away with the [[WesternAnimation/TinyToonAdventures Elmyra]]-esque antics scot-free (save for getting a fishbowl on her head for her trouble). Had she tried that in this day and age, especially with the advent of video sharing, let's just say a little ImageBoard called Website/FourChan would've found her and...her life would be in shambles.
* LaserGuidedKarma: While the gang plays Monopoly, Lucy keeps taunting Charlie Brown because she owns Boardwalk and Park Place. She rolls doubles, boasts that she has another turn and lands on Schroeder's Pacific Avenue with a hotel. Their background chatter while Charlie Brown starts looking around for Snoopy explicitly states that this move bankrupts her out of the game. Played for laughs, of course.

Snoopy and Woodstock eventually make it to Lila's side where they help her recover, only to have Lila ask if Snoopy wants to stay with her permanently. Feeling obligated, Snoopy returns home to inform everyone that he is leaving to live with Lila permanently, essentially massacring what little self-esteem Charlie Brown has in the process. This culminates in a going-away party in which the entire Peanuts cast (and the audience as well) ends up crying hysterically the entire time while Snoopy gives away all of his possessions. Charlie Brown sinks even deeper into depression afterwards.

A 1991 animated tv-special, ''Snoopy's Reunion'', provides a prequel story about Snoopy and Lila, while contradicting some details from ''Snoopy Come Home''.
