Snoopy’s Doghouse At Chez Herd

In the Peanuts comic strip, Snoopy’s doghouse was many things to the canine character – and an inspiration to our very own Boom Boom.

Landon hasn’t flown the crate like Snoopy did with the Sopwith Camel, but he does use this perch for surveillance inside the house. Our biggest question for him is whether the wire top to the crate hurts his paws.

Thanks for reminding me . . . owwwwww!

This is actually the way Landon signals that he is ready to come inside. Sure, some dogs scratch on the door. Some sit and stare patiently through the glass. And some (er, Typhoon) knock loudly with their paws. Landon’s unique approach is to stand on a crate and stare inside the house until the Hu-Dad notices. In this case, however, Hu-Dad just grabbed a camera and started taking pictures.

Come on, Hu-Dad, put down the camera and open the door.

    Awww. Put a couple of boards and a piece of carpet across the top of all those crates. Would make a dandy canine look out.

    When our Sabrina would want in she would hop up on the window sill and stand side ways glaring in at us. This is good athleticism since the sill was about 3-4 feet off the ground and only one brick wide (and she weighed 60 pounds).
