Dog of 1,000 Faces

When I was a kid, my mother, father, and sister all enjoyed assembling jigsaw puzzles. Everybody in my family enjoyed working jigsaw puzzles but me. I found them exceedingly frustrating to solve and greatly preferred making up stories about the people in the puzzles than actually putting them together.

Even if I did enjoy solving jigsaw puzzles, I’m not sure I would buy one from a thrift store — every step of the way I would convince myself that pieces were missing. That being said, I did enjoy the artwork on this one. I’m not sure there are 1,000 versions of Snoopy in this picture, but there are more than I’ve seen in any one place.

For some reason, all these dogs are making me want to eat a Sno-Cone.

  1. I did a quick count & there are only about 30 snoopys in that pic, plus a handful of woodstocks and a few odds & ends characters.
    I always enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, I had about 20 100~200 piece ones, including a couple peanuts ones, a few smurf ones, and assorted odds & ends ones. I also kept a bunch of frame tray puzzles into my early teens or so. To make them still be moderately challenging I would dump out all the pieces of all the puzzles together & try to assemble all of them at once.

    I presently have a couple jigsaw programs on my comp & was actually doing a few just about 10 minutes before seeing this post.

  2. There are officially 3 female snoopys, as can be seen in the family reunion special. He has 2 sisters and his mother.
