Snoopy Rock I

My Dogged Pursuit Continues
Snoopy Rock I, Preston City

August 7, 2010

While tooling down Route 165 into Preston City, Hoang noted how cute this painted rock was. Hoang likes dogs. Her family Chihuahua had just died a couple days ago. Don’t feel too badly; BeauBeau was N-I-N-E-T-E-E-N years old and quite frankly, looked a fright. And his name really was BeauBeau and it really was apparently spelled like that.


After a stop at a winery and some lunch, we passed the dog rock again and I took a picture. I can’t imagine you’ll ever have any reason to be on Route 165 in Preston City (unless going to Dalice Elizabeth Winery or the Preston Historical Society), and I don’t know how long the dog will last.

Nor do I really care, actually. RIP BeauBeau.

    I’d forgotten about that rock. Years ago I used to pass it daily on my commute to work.

  2. Dave says:

    Dog Rock will last as long as Time. The paint will be a bit scruffy-looking towards the end, though.

    We have a dog rock in Winsted also, at Highland Lake

    That will last a long time, it was there when I first moved there in the mid 70′s.

  5. Ed says:

    There is a plaque near the dog that tells the story of the dog. It was first painted in 1935.
