Excitement in Wheaton (from the April 17 Sunday.)

Though it hasn't been mentioned in the strip and perhaps never will be, Spot and Karl live in the town of Wheaton, NH. As far as I know, there isn't a Wheaton, NH. But there is an Eaton, NH, where I lived in a cabin on a lake for a summer and a fall, where the frogs would croak and I'd play my trumpet. A keen listener could tell the difference.
