Snoopy helps Free Willie

I’d never even met Willie before and suddenly here he was in my garden……and nobody knew!

I was busy getting groomed out in the front garden.  I like it here cos I can watch kids playing and generally be nosey, it does get kinda dull otherwise……

Mum was busy brushing me and noticed me wagging my tail – yep, I always give things away with my tail.

She looked around and couldn’t see why I was so excited – after a few times she finally looked right in front of the porch and there in the bushes was Willie!  He was just sniffing around, we didn’t even know he was Willie at this point as we’d never met him.


Mum, we've got a visitor! :)

Mum managed to get him to come over so she could hold his collar, I could have got him over, but Mum wouldn’t let me off the table – doh!  He was really friendly and we did lots of sniffing.  Luckily Mum found his name and number on his tag and called his owners.  That’s when we discovered he lived just a few doors away on our street!


Willie looks similar to this guy - there was no chance to get a pic of him, too much excitement!

We took him home (not an easy task for Mum, with two excited doggies!) just as his owners were looking for him.

Apparently he doesn’t go out very often which was why I hadn’t seen him before – I guess he wasn’t gonna be Free Willie for very long after all!!

I’m just happy he didn’t get chance to get too far and get really lost…..Mum says the grass isn’t really greener on the other side…….


  1. Oh my goodness! Willie and his family were so lucky that you were outside when he snuck out!

    P.S. I’m so glad you’ve never seen clippers, Snoopy. You have the most beautiful fur!! I can’t wait to see the sweater. ;)

    • Hi Lori,

      Yep, Willie sure was lucky, but so was I cos I got to meet him and he’s really sweet – I think we could be good friends :)

      Have a great day, wags to Gus,

      Snoops :)

  2. OMG I know that photo is not your actual “Willie” but he is cute….

    Snoopy you are such a wonderful pup…thank God for that tail….otherwise Willie might still be roaming the streets….

    • Hi Rachel,

      You know what, Willie was even cuter in real life….I thought maybe Mum would never look in the right place and see him, I didn’t want to bark or I might have scared him! :)

      Woofs to the pack,

      Snoops :)

  3. Sounds kinda like a poor sad pup if he doesn’t get out much. Maybe you guys could have a play date. Lucky you found him though.

    • Hey Roxy,

      Yep, I’m sure hoping I can have a play date with Willie, maybe I could invite Cosmo from next door too? That would be lots of fun! Shame you don’t live closer or you could come……:)

      Hope you’re having a fun day,

      Your pal Snoops :)

  4. Snoopy, what a terrific job you did letting your mom know that there was a new pup afoot! It is wonderful that you were able to get him back home so quickly!

    • Hi Vicky,

      Yep, I’m kinda proud of myself that I discovered him – well he was right in front of me……can’t believe Mum couldn’t see him! Yep, if he didn’t have his tag on it would have taken a lot longer to find his home…..

      Hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  5. You freed Willie and you saved him too! Snoopy you are such a great dog. You are myhero. Hey Willie and I look very similar. I’ll bet we’d get along great!

    Way to go Snoopy — You the Dog!

  6. Great job, Snoopy! I’m sure Willie was very happy to go home. :)

    Woofs & hugs,


  7. Way to help out Willie, Snoop! It’s always great to reunite a pup with his family! Good job.

    • Hey there Kristin,

      Yep Willie’s family sure were happy to get him back, I have a feeling Willie would have been cool with being on the run a little longer, tee hee

      Snoops :)
