Snoopy Inspector Trent Mayberry Keeps An American Icon Looking His Best Through the Dog Days of Summer
A summer intern with the city of St. Paul, Mayberry, 22, spends his days inspecting the 75 5-ft.-tall fiberglass Snoopy statues that comprise a public art tribute to late Peanuts cartoonist (and native son) Charles M. Schulz. Armed with a clipboard and a keen eye, he looks for loose ears, blistering paint, cracks and vandalism on the statues, which are to be auctioned off in October. "I kid him about being chief dog-sitter," says St. Paul marketing director Megan Ryan. "But he knows his job is important."
With so many pups on his watch, Mayberry—who is raising Catherine, 2, with his wife, Jane, 22—is also grateful for the help he gets from St. Paul Snoopy lovers. Once, a "Snoopy had been tipped over, and both legs were broken," he recalls. "But when I got there, someone had already taped up his legs and put a bandage on his head. It was real nice."
