It’s raining Cats and Dogs…..whatever that means?

We’ve had weeks of dry sunny weather.  But the long dry spell has now finished and this week we’re going to have rain, rain, and more rain!!

I’m happy to go out and splash about in the rain, I’m just not a big fan of the hose down afterwards!  Mum said she’s not a big fan of the clean up operation either…..

Dad announced yesterday that he thinks I should get boots and wear a sweater to keep my coat clean and dry.  I’m shocked, I didn’t think Dad would be the one trying to get me a closet full of clothes!!  I just hope there’s pink in there……!!  Hold on, what am I saying? I mean, I hope there’s NOT any pink in there, phew, that was close!!  I think I might try the clothes thing, I kinda liked my Halloween outfit.

Anyway, yesterday it was raining when we got up and Mum was not keen to take me out and get me all wet and dirty.  I convinced her though, that we should go anyway.

I wanna go out and play.....

I had to be super cute in order to convince her……

We went for a long run, I got to splash in lots of puddles, I was kinda messy by the time we got home…..then we had a loooooong grooming session to get me back to my fluffy state, it was worth it though!!

I'm a Soggy Doggy!

I wonder if any other dogs like to play out in the rain too?  I didn’t see many out……dressed or not dressed……


  1. Awwww…sorry it was a soggy run, Snoopy. The video of you pawing at the door was so cute! No wonder your mum gave in!

  2. Oh Snoopy your soggy picture is so pathetic! Spike and Dru love the rain as long as it’s warm, they are not fans of the cold rain we have during the winter. I can just imagine all the towels your Mum is going to have to wash this week. What Spike and Dru really love is the rub down they get when they come in.

    • Hi Helen,

      Funny you say my pic is pathetic, Mum used that word too!?

      I don’t think I’d like cold rain either, in fact I’m really not sure I could convince Mum to go out in that, luckily ours was warm…..yep, my favourite part is definitely the rub down too, woohoo!!

      Woofs to all,

      Snoopy :)

  3. Snoopy,
    looks like you had fun playing out there in the rain. Generally, humans don’t enjoy walking around in rain (depending on where you live!). Sometimes, I enjoy the rain but my “fur” isn’t as fulffy as yours so I have less trouble getting it dry :-)

    • Hi Franziska,

      Yep, Mum hates the cold, but says she’d rather have that than rain…….me, I don’t care, out is out whatever the weather!!


  4. I know how you feel! It’s raining her today. I want to go outside, but I don’t like to be wet and mama doesn’t like wet doggy smell. I’ll have to go out though. It’s fun to run in mud isn’t it. Feels great on the pads!
    Just hopping by.

    • Yes Opie I hear you, I get complaints to if I smell like a wet dog, what else would I smell like?

      Mum’s got some magic spray that makes me smell all girly that she uses when grooming.

      Snoopy :)

  5. I love to play in the rain too, Snoopy! But, like you, I have these big furry paws that take forever to clean and dry… but it’s worth it! Funny thing is, I don’t like to go out in the rain just for potty — in fact I try to resist going out and hold it as long as possible. But, if it’s raining and we’re going for a walk , I’m fine with that! I guess I’m a complicated puppy :)

    “commentary to give you paws…”

    • Hey Atticus,

      Mum’s hoping we’re really similar, cos these last few days when it’s been raining, I’ve only gone as far as the first bush to potty, that means Mum doesn’t even get wet as the lead is long enough. I’m keeping her guessing as to whether this will be a regular thing in the rain though, she gave me lots of praise for doing it so far, so maybe?

      Your buddy Snoopy :)

  6. My Doodlebug only has a third of your hair, but apparently makes three times the mess when he plays in the rain.
