It was not part of the Doghouse Days of Summer, but was created from the exact same mold.

|Artist:||Eagan Convention & Visitors Bureau|
|Sponsor:||Eagan Convention & Visitors Bureau|

After seeing the Peanuts on Parade events draw over 2-million visitors to Saint Paul, the Eagan Convention and Visitors Bureau wanted to get in on the fun. They sponsored this doghouse statue with the intent of putting it on display within the City of Eagan after the tribute was completed. They wanted an interactive experience that would appeal to kids, so they includes a word scramble and a count the E’s game.

This doghouse statue, called ‘Life Is For The Birds,’ is on display in front of a private home in South Saint Paul.

|Location:||Gillette Children's Specialty Clinic|
Here is another doghouse statue that shows Snoopy in serious condition, but with a very attentive Woodstock working to help his friend pull through. And if Snoopy needs some counseling as part of his recovery, he is in luck because Lucy charges just 5 cents per session, and the doctor is in. This statue is located in an outdoor plaza at the Gillette Children's Specialty Clinic that is attached to Regions Hospital just north of downtown Saint Paul.
|Sponsor:||Stuart Management Corporation|
|Location:||Woodstone Apartments, 2335 Stewart Ave, Saint Paul, MN|
Here we see the doghouse statue named ‘Snooperintendent’, where Snoopy is the building super for a very stately apartment building. While Woodstock is missing from the top of Snoopy's stomach, we do see Woodstock and many of his bird friends in the windows of the building.
|Location:||Alliance Bank, 55 East 5th Street, Saint Paul|
This doghouse is on display in the first floor entryway of the Alliance Bank Center in downtown Saint Paul. This statue is not decorated in original artwork from the Peanuts On Parade tribute. Rather, this is either a custom made statue from the same molds, or it is one of the originals that has been redecorated. The information label had been covered over, so it will remain a mystery.
|Sponsor:||Molin Concrete Products|
|Location:||Chain of Lakes YMCA, Lino Lakes|
This doghouse, on display in front of the Chain of Lakes YMCA in Lino Lakes, Minnesota, is titled ‘Valkommen’. It was sponsored by Molin Concrete Products. This company was originally founded in 1897 by John Molin, who immigrated to the US from Sweden, thus the Swedish theme of the statue, including the flag that Woodstock is holding. The artist is Danielle Ferrin, who designed several other statues in the Peanuts on Parade series, including two other doghouses.

This book-themed statue was designed by artist Kim Cope and was sponsored by Half Price Books, where I found it on display at the entrance to their parking lot at 2041 Ford Parkway. Woodstock and Snoopy’s typewriter are missing from the statue, and the words have faded off of the cover of Snoopy’s novel (the white rectangle on the roof).

|Location:||Linder’s Garden Center, 270 West Larpenteur Avenue, St. Paul|
‘Snoopy Gets Growing’ is a garden themed doghouse that is on display at Linder’s Garden Center on Larpenteur in Saint Paul.

Linder’s is a huge garden center that is a regional destination for both weekend gardeners as well as those who are very serious about landscaping and gardening.

This doghouse, on display outside of the Saint Paul Children’s Museum, is titled ‘There’s No Space Like Home.’ The statue was designed by the crew at Tivoli Too Studios, who also manufactured all of the Peanuts On Parade statues, and was sponsored by Tol-O-Matic, Inc. I had never heard of Tol-O-Matic before, but it turns out that they are a 50 year old company that is an industry leader in servos, steppers, actuators and linear motion controllers. While it is not unusual to see Snoopy dressed for space flight, in this case, we see Woodstock wearing a spacesuit.

Snoopy's doghouse is dressed up as a northern Minnesota lodge in this very elaborately decorated statue, which includes evergreen trees, Charlie Brown as a park ranger, and group of Beagle Scout birds. We also see examples of the technology sold by Best Buy, including a MP3 player, GPS, laptop computer, and a DVD player. The result is an excellent example of how Best Buy is at the intersection of technology and life. Note that the Best Buy headquarters building is not open to the general public.

|Name:||Dog In Training|
|Location:||Saint Paul Union Depot, Historic Stairway|
The newly redecorated ‘Dog In Training’ was unveiled on the morning of December 8, 2012, as part of the grand re-opening of the Saint Paul Union Depot. The depot was built between 1917 and 1923, and served passenger rail until 1971. It was then converted into postal service use until 2011. After $238-million was poured into the structure, plus millions more to move the postal processing to Eagan and a billion for light rail, this magnificent structure is once again open as a passenger transit hub. The doghouse statue was originally red and featured a locomotive theme. It was redecorated in a Union Depot theme with a golden roof by the same artist who originally decorated the statue, Toni Dachis. It was originally sponsored by JAS Apartments. While it is nice that this statue was renovated after being heavily vandalized, being a Snoopy purist, I wonder if I would have preferred to see it restored to its original theme?
|Name:||Good To Go...After My Nap|
|Artist:||Robert L. Zins|
|Location:||ProX Pharmacy, South Saint Paul|
This statue, located inside the ProX Pharmacy in South Saint Paul, is called Good To Go...After My Nap. It was sponsored by the pharmacy and was designed by artist Robert Zins.

The full name of this doghouse statue is ‘Cold Feet, Warm Thoughts - Manzanillo, Colima - Saint Paul, MN Sister City.’ It is one of two statues that were sponsored by a coalition of local firms involved with the development of the Cascadas de Manzanillo real estate development at Santiago Bay in Mexico. A Snoopy statue called ‘Fisherman Snoopy’ was sent to Colima, while this doghouse, which is decorated with both Minnesota and Mexican themes, was put on display at the Hubert Humphrey Terminal at the MSP Airport. The statue was located near gate H3 in Terminal 2 for many years, but was moved in November, 2012, to a children’s play area in Terminal 1 near door #6 on the baggage claim level. Of the three Peanuts statues located in Terminal 1, this is the only one that can be visited without passing through a TSA checkpoint as a ticketed passenger.

|Name:||Hamline’s Sesquicentennial Class - Doggone It|
|Location:||Hamline University, Klas Center|
This doghouse is known as ‘Hamline’s Sesquicentennial Class - Doggone It!’ Designed by artist Toni Dachis and sponsored by Hamline University, it is dressed up to resemble Old Main Hall in the center of Hamline’s Saint Paul Campus. Hamline celebrated 150 years of operation. It is the state’s oldest university, and one of the top rated. The statue is located in front of the Klas Center, part of the Hamline stadium complex.
|Name:||Dog Nap At The Fair|
|Sponsor:||Minnesota State Fair|
|Location:||Minnesota State Fairgrounds, Admin Too Building|
Here we see Snoopy and Woodstock enjoying a warm summer afternoon lounging on top of Snoopy’s doghouse.

The effect works very well.
|Artist:||Steve Gamache & Family|
|Sponsor:||Grand Avenue Veterinary Center|
|Location:||Grand Avenue Veterinary Center, Saint Paul|
Here we see Snoopy as the Patient Puppy. Woodstock is playing the part of the veterinarian, while Snoopy has an I-V and his ears are bandaged.
