Snip is a male[4] sheltie-retriever.[1]

History

In the Original Series

A Hidden Enemy

When Yap returns to where his littermates and Mother-Dog are after hearing a wolf howl, his littermates greet his return with a wild chorus of yipping, and he squeezes in among them beneath his mother's belly. Their nuzzling and licking calms his heart, and when he asks what the noise was and if they heard it, his littermates agree. Mother-Dog informs them that it was a wolf, not a dog, and the word 'wolf' makes Snip and his littermates nervous. Mother-Dog tells them that wolves and dogs are similar, but wolves are wild and crafty, and she informs her pups to always remember to be noble and honorable. Snip timidly notes that when it howled, it sounded a bit like a dog, and Mother-Dog replies that wolves and dogs are connected, but wolves mustn't be trusted.
Mother-Dog retells the story of Nuzzle to her pups, and tells them that although Lightning saved Nuzzle, they cannot rely on Lightning, and must learn from Nuzzle's mistakes. The howling is heard again, and the pups cuddle even closer together. Yap feels warm and safe nestled in the pup pack, and thinks that life should always be far from the Wild and wolves, and in the protective huddle of his family.

Darkness Falls

When there is a storm outside, Snip and his littermates are worried. However, his Mother-Dog comforts them that there is nothing to be afraid of, as the Sky-Dogs are only playing. Snip asks Mother-Dog is she is positive that they are only playing, to which she responds firmly that they are.

The Broken Path

Snip does not formally appear in The Broken Path. However, he is most likely mentioned after Yap alerts the longpaws of the fire. Yap and Mother-Dog walk back to the shed, where it is mentioned that they sleep with Yap's other littermates.

Trivia

  • Snip could be a male, as in A Hidden Enemy it says "Yap felt the same nervous prickling in the skin of his brothers and sisters."[5] Lucky's only brother that was mentioned so far was Yowl, so it's a possibility Snip is also his brother.
    • Gillian later confirmed that Snip is male.[6]
  • Gillian is unsure on whether or not we will see more of Lucky's siblings in the future.[7]
  • Gillian says that Yowl, Snip, and Yip did not die an early death, and would be included among the category of 'siblings' mentioned in the prologues of the first series. However, she said that they would have been given to other longpaw owners at some point, so that Bella and Lucky wouldn't know what happened to them.[8]
  • Gillian says that although she is unsure if we will see Yowl, Snip, and Yip again, they would have been given their new names and lost their puppy names.[9]
