I was heavily influenced by Snoopy as a young child. I loved all things Charlie Brown! Still going through boxes from the move I found my old friend Snoopy sleeping happily in a box.

I don’t believe I would ever be able to part with my stuffed Snoopy, although he is far too grimy to pass down to my grandkids! Maybe the dry cleaners can have a go at him, but only if they can guarantee he won’t be completely destroyed! I would rather keep him “as is” over losing him entirely!
