Today I almost didn’t have time to make a doodlewash, but managed to do a quick one of the very first dog I remember owning as a little kid. This was a Snoopy Sniffer Pull Toy by Fisher Price. He had a cousin called Little Snoopy that was just a wooden block on wheels, but this guy actually walked with his little double-jointed legs when you rolled him.
Snoopy Sniffer was a cool little wooden cut-out dog with paper lithographs on all sides of a white hound dog with brown and black body coloring. He had floppy brown felt ears, white plastic feet, and a red vinyl leash attached to the top of his neck. When you pulled, Snoopy made an “Oww-oww” sound, moved on all four feet, and wagged his little spring tail. He was the best pet ever!
I don’t have much time today to write a proper post and I’m super exhausted, but I wanted to share this little guy with you. I’m determined to keep my daily doodlewashes going, even when I don’t have time to write much about them. Not sure how many of you remember this one, but I have incredibly fond memories of pulling him through the house. I loved these wooden toys as they felt more “alive” than the plastic ones. No idea what happened to Snoopy, but I still miss him and I’m glad he was there for me in those early years.
