Peanut Pup is one of my favorite little decor doodads I have in my house. I picked him up many years ago at a thrift store for $1.25. I know this for certain because the sharpie scribbled price is still on his under belly. I have been buying lots of stuff from this same thrift store for well over 25 years. I like leaving the markered price on because it's fun for me to turn stuff over and be reminded of what I paid for it.
I came across this vintage (unsure of date though) ad for Peanut Pup's pappy dog, Snack Hound.
"Holds 7 varieties of imported cheese spreads from Europe. Re-usable at parties with pretzels on his tail and his body filled with chips and crackers. Made of Buna wood; about 17 inches long. Ship wt. 1 lb. 6 oz......4.99"
Peanut Pup is much smaller, about 11 inches nose to tail.
Perfect to hold a small stash of Nutter Butter Peanut Cookies!
