Snoopy

I picked up this small writing Snoopy as another motivator for my writing and because everybody loves Snoopy. Mostly, it's a reminder that I need to be writing. But still, Snoopy is cool.
However, he doesn't sit up very well on his own and so ends up resting with his nose to the page. That could be because he's working hard, but I think it's just bad design. Besides, I thought to myself, he needs a doghouse to sit on.
So I set about building him a dog house out of craft wood. I based it on the picture you see there. And yes, I know that Snoopy's doghouse has a peaked roof, but I needed it to be flat so that he could sit on it and the typewriter wouldn't slide off the side.
I like it and I'm very happy with how it turned out. I'm debating about putting it on a base with the words "It was a dark and stormy night." printed above him. I'm still undecided on that. It's done for now.
