I love it when I’m Home Alone ! :)

I know some poor Dogs suffer from separation anxiety, but not me.

As soon as I realise everyone’s  going out I get really excited.

That’s because I know Mum’s gonna give me a Dentastix AND I’m gonna get  some peace and quiet!! :)

I stick to Mum like glue, I don’t want her forgetting the treat!!

Here’s the deal, I look after the house and don’t get up to ANY Mischief (nah, sleeping on the sofa doesn’t count in my book!) and you pay me with a Dentastix – Sweet Deal!! :)


I could play this game all day - sure you don't need to go on another errand?! :)


Have you ever seen a Dog get into bed this fast? :)

I wonder what other Dogs get when they’re left to mind the house?



  1. Well we get a big fat nada. But sometimes we get to hang out in our outside runs and watch birds and SQ’s. :)

    the brown dawgs

    PS Snoops we think you have magical powers because as our human was reading this, a commercial for dentastix came on the tv!

    • Hi Browndawgs,

      That’s cool!! I was trying to encourage your Mum to let you taste the yumminess that is Dentastix, they’re my all time favorites, did I do a good job? I was sending my special magical vibes….. :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  2. That’s one sweet deal you’ve got there Snoopy!

  3. I don’t get up to mischief when I’m alone, but that’s because I’m in my crate. I don’t mind it, though, because I get a great treat when I go in, lots of pets and praise when I come out, and I get some solid nap time too! My family tried letting me stay out of the crate, but it bothered me. I prefer the coziness of my crate….and it’s the only thing that curbs my mischievous nature…. ;)

    • Hi Daisy,

      I think you’re like me, it’s always better to have an audience when you’re doing Mischief, right?!

      That’s why I don’t bother when they’re out – yep, Mum does find this surprising!!

      I’ve been allowed free reign of the house for at least a year now and I haven’t touched a single thing – I didn’t like my crate, so I didn’t want to spoil a good thing….. yeah, I know a crate is supposed to be like a cave, I prefer to hide under the table when I’m in the cave mood! :)

      Have a fun day buddy,

      Snoops :)

  4. That is a sweet deal!!!

  5. You must do a great job guarding the house if you get a special treat to do it! My boys like to chew – not every day, but randomly, and usually expensive things (like bluetooths or clinique makeup!). Kool and Swift are confined to a crate while I’m out. They’re probably lick any intruders anyway and try to get kisses and pets. :)
    Amy @ LifeWithDoxies recently posted..Wordless Wednesday #11My Profile

    • Hi Amy,

      Yeah, I dunno what I’d be like with intruders either cos I’m super friendly, but I like to bark if anyone comes near the house!! Kinda like a guard dog? :)

      Well, if my Mum’s home I’m like Swift and Kool, but if I’m left ‘on trust’ I’m the perfect Doggie and don’t touch anything – not even my toys!! Mum thinks it’s weird, but it’s cool cos I don’t have to stay in my crate – yay!! :)

      Have a fun weekend,

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  6. You’re such a good boy, you deserve a yummy treat! Cali used to get a kong with peanut butter when she was young, now we just give her a treat when we leave :)
    Julie recently posted..Wordless Wednesday #20My Profile

  7. You are a such a good boy, you deserve a yummy treat! Cali gets a treat every time we leave the house ;)

    • Hi Julie,

      Sounds like Cali is a good girl too – I’m thinking I may even deserve one when they get home too? Never get one though – doh!! :)


      Snoops :)

  8. Wow! Gorgeous dog! And so well behaved! Sadly our heeler pup Zebulon is still to chewy to be left unguarded in the house but he still gets a treat for being so darn adorable. Thanks for posting the vid Snoops!

    • Nola,

      You crack me up!! Ok, so I’m guessing the Kong itself tasted very like the goodie that was put inside it? Thinking they should have explained how it worked to you? Tee Hee

      Have fun buddy

      Snoops :)

  10. What an awesome dog Snoopy is! If I left my dogs in the house while I was gone, there is no telling what kind of mischief they would get into!

  11. Cute! Alma has some separation anxiety if she’s left completely alone (such as when I take Moses on a walk without her), but it’s slowly getting better. Distractions didn’t really seem to have a big effect on her reaction (such as toys, a bone, or a peanut butter stuffed Kong), but it’s still getting better over time and she seems to cope better if she gets walked first and is tired enough to relax a bit.

    • Hi Jen,

      Sorry to hear Alma is feeling stressed when she’s on her own, maybe a Dentastix will help? Or I could come over and play? :)

      Big Wags Alma,

      Snoops :)

  12. I loved watching you on the video Snoopy, you love those treats don’t you; I think you’d do just about anything for one of them!

  13. I get the cat food when I’m left to mind the house. So you sleep on the sofa too Snoopy? I have to get off it really quick when I hear my people coming home again.
    Bongo recently posted..To the VetMy Profile

    • Hi Bongo,

      Yeah it’s all about timing when it comes to the sofa hey buddy?! So let me get this right, they give you the Cat food, or you ‘find’ it? :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  14. Don’t ask. Peanuts goes ballistic if she’s left too long alone. We went to a friend’s house for 7 hours and she’s ruined my crocheted sweater, a ball of yarn, and my favorite sandals ( which actually needs a replacement since it’s really worn out anyway).

    It was on the freaking cabinet! Next time they’re out of the house, make a run for it!

    Huggies and Cheese,

    haopee recently posted..Wordless ThursdayMy Profile

    • Uh oh Haopee,

      It sounds like Peanuts still has a bit to go, to perfect this, although good that she helped you get some new sandals, right?! Tee Hee

      Big wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  15. Tim Forrest says:

    That is a great deal. You are very smart Snoopy.

    I hope you get your Dentastixs on time always.


  16. I have severe separation anxiety if I’m left alone in the house outside of my crate. I don’t destroy anything, but I cry and howl. If I’m in my crate? I’m fine! In fact, even I know how upset I am if I don’t get to be in my crate, and now if you forget to put me in there…I go put myself away. I just feel more relaxed in my crate when no one else is home!

    • Hi Rocco,

      Isn’t it funny how different we all are – I hated my crate! :) Guessing you’ve made yours into a great little home :)

      Have fun buddy,

      Snoops :)

  17. I catch up on my beauty sleep when left alone in the house, but, like you, Snoopy, not before getting a yummy chicken strip. It’s nice that we get paid for our guard duty, right?
    Sage recently posted..A Message to KMy Profile

    • Hi Sage,

      I totally think we should get paid for our services – it’s not much to ask for such a great job, hey?! Even when I’m asleep I still keep my ears open, so I’m still working….. :)

      Hope you’re having a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  18. You are an adorable doll…ups I meant Dog. You look like a doll in that photo
