A Photo Tour Of Snoopy's Doghouse
Statues From The 2004 Peanuts On Parade
‘Doghouse Days Of Summer’ Tribute


The final Charles Schultz tribute in Saint Paul ran during the summer of 2004. It was called ‘Doghouse Days Of Summer,’ and featured Snoopy and Woodstock on top of Snoopy's famous doghouse. Like the other series of statues, each doghouse was about 5-1/2 feet tall, and was built from gel coated fiberglass on a concrete base.

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.

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.

Peanuts On Parade - Doghouse Days Of Summer - Dog In Training
  Name: Dog In Training
  Artist: Toni Dachis
  Sponsor: JAS Apartments
  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?

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.
