Bring me Sunshine

First I should explain – we live in California so we don’t get much rain, this Winter/Spring we’ve had virtually no rain…..

However, the last few weeks we’ve had a little rain and it’s reminded Mum why she’s so glad we live in California……

I think we may get 1 or 2 more days of rain and then Mum’s hoping it’s Sun, Sun, Sun after that…. :)

Me?  I don’t care, I like splashing in the puddles – Tee Hee

This is Cosmo and I after a recent run in the rain - Woohoo!! We had a blast!! :)

Come on Mum, it's just a little bit of water…… :)


We passed one lady whilst out running who had a Black Lab and she said “I’m not going to moan about drying my Dog any more now I’ve seen yours!” :)


BEFORE a run in the rain shot…..

AFTER a run in the rain shot….. :)


At one point this week Mum was wishing she had an indoor bathroom for me and a treadmill so we didn’t have to go out…… Huh?  And miss all the fun…..?  Tee Hee

Now Mum just has to get me back to the BEFORE look in time for my Therapy Dog visit today….. :)

Do you like it out in the rain?





  1. Oh no Snoopy, I HATES the rains! My belly gets all wet, and all the rest of me does too. Maybe I can come visit in Californias, where I can roll in the sun every day! I must say, you is quite the handsome dog, even when you is soaked.

    • Hey Reuben,

      Yeah, come on over – let’s play in the Sun – though I have to warn you, it gets super hot in the Summer, that’s probably the only time I’m thankful to have a bath!! :)

      Have a fun day buddy,

      Snoops :)

  2. That is ALOT of wet hair to dry, lol. Id rather have rain then the snow we had coming down this morning…boo to snow!

  3. Sampson and Delilah love to run in the rain! It looks like you had a grand time.

  4. Your lucky to run in the rain. We are basically banned from the rain, we love it mom HATES it! Have a great weekend!!

    • Hi Guys,

      I think Mum would love to ban me too – she bans me from the mud bath in the garden when it rains!! But she takes me running in the rain cos she thinks it’s easier than dealing with More Mischief!! Tee Hee

      Have a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  5. Hi Snoopy!

    We live in Michigan and we get A LOT of rain and NO, I don’t like it ONE BIT!

    Mom and Dad always have to wipe my paws and it messes up my luxurious fur…but I gotta admit, I don’t get as wet as you! Take my advice pal, and keep some hair products with you at all time!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Yuk Dakota,

      Don’t talk about hair products buddy – Mum’s always spraying me with smelly stuff – she says it’s good for my coat, but I just shake it off!! Tee Hee

      Have a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  6. LOL Snoopy, you sure look good as a wet dawg!

  7. Awwwe Snoopy! Wet or dry I just don’t know which way you look cuter!

  8. Wow, drying YOU off after a run in the rain IS a big job, Snoop! But freshly coiffed or wet with rain – you look awesome both ways!

    • Ah thanks Tucker’s Mom – you’re so sweet!!

      I always seem to attract dirt when I’m wet, so that means I’m gonna get the hose pipe – that’s probably the worst bit of running in the rain…. doh!!

      Have a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  9. I love the rain! I have a little pink raincoat so my back stays dry, that’s the only way I’ll go out if its wet. My mom says she bets you stink BOL

    • Nola,

      I love you to bits, but don’t be talking about the Pink raincoat, what if my Mum sees – you know how crazy she is!!

      And PS – stink? Are you kidding – they make me take a bath every week, like I have time to get stinky!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  10. I don’t mind rain, the hounds hate it but Sheila Sheltie, Margie Border Terrier mix & Seymour PH tweenie Dachshund love it; I’ve had to pull Seymour out of a digging hole for fear he would drown! None of the dogs here have the long fur you do, though, Snoopy; only Snowman, the Great Pyr foster dog, comes close. Do you do well with a dryer?
    Have a great week with your therapy – you are a therapy dog to us all :).
    Roberta recently posted..WW – Snowman & Sweet PeaMy Profile

    • Thanks Roberta,

      Your story about Seymour made me laugh – must have been a pretty good size hole?! :)

      The only time I get close to a dryer is when Mum’s drying her hair and then I go and lie beside her – after my bath I’m usually taken for a walk and Tah Dah I’m dry in no time! :)

      Have a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  11. We like playing in the rain. It is so refreshing :) Usually if we come to the door soaked our mommy dries us off with a towel. We don’t mind this because we always get an extra hug and treat after the towel session :)

  12. Well, you know that we live in Portland, Oregon right? Rain is the norm here! If we didn’t go out in the rain, we would never get to take a walk!! Cali loves to run through puddles, and she is pretty furry too! Hope your mum got you looking good before your therapy visit!! Have a great weekend!
    Julie recently posted..Meet Kobe!!My Profile

    • Hi Julie,

      My Mum used to live on a small Island and I think it must have been very similar to Portland as she said she’s had enough rain to last her a lifetime!!

      Cali sure is lucky to be running in puddles most days :)

      Yep, I was all spruced up before my visit – I posted a picture on my facebook page :)

      Have a fun (maybe soggy?) weekend,

      Snoops :)

  13. I like playing under the rain with my kids. But sunshine I love most.

  14. For me, I hate the rain. Out, potty, run back in. Torrey doesn’t care at all. Even snow isn’t quite as wet, sometimes. Have an awesome weekend!!!!
    Your Furiend, Roxy

    • Hey Roxy,

      Sounds like you’ve got the whole routine worked out – no rain drops are gonna get you buddy!! :)

      Have a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  15. Enjoyment with your dogs is real fun. Can;t do that here. Rain seems to be a disaster with its strong with it brings. My dogs are just so scared. Lol

  16. I LOVE it out in the rain! Only bad thing is, I have to be dried off a little before I come back inside. That part I could do without. I wanna stay WET! Teehee! ;)

    Woofs & hugs, <3

    ~Bailey (Yep, I'm a girl!)

    • Hey Bailey,

      You love your Mischief hey buddy?! I bet your Mum is standing there waiting for you when you try and sneak in, right?! That’s what my Mum does – doh!! :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  17. Kinda funny but my dog is scared when it rains. We never do outdoor activity when the rain pours.

  18. Snoopy, this is how my Sophie looks pretty much all the time! Between the ocean and the rain, we get lots of that here, she is wet a lot! And being part Lab and part Poodle, both loving the WET, she is as happy as you look! lol
    Jim recently posted..Retro SaturdayMy Profile

    • Hey Jim,

      So Sophie is a Soggy Doggy? How fun that must be – I don’t think my Mum could cope with it too often? :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  19. Looks like a good idea…I am not sure if my dog would love going outdoors while raining…Well I got to find out…

  20. Mom doesnt walk us in the rain or trys not to when its wet out. We are so close to the ground that we are like a sponge, if you no what I mean, hehehe

    • Haha – I know what you mean guys!! You must get soaked!!

      Mum’s hoping we had our last rain yesterday (she’s always hoping it’s the last) – we got out and back before it rained, so she was super happy!! :) Lots of Sun today, so do you think she’s taken me out yet? Nope, I’m still waiting patiently….. dum dee dum….. :)

      Hope you’re having a fun weekend,

      Snoops :)

  21. As much as I LOVE rolling in the mud or swimming in a pond, I DON’T like going out in the rain. But I do it. I’m not as soggy as you though, Snoopy!!
    Sage recently posted..Am I My Brother’s Keeper?My Profile

    • Hey Sage,

      I’ve never rolled in a puddle, but it sure looks like lots of fun!! I hope you get some nice big puddles this weekend buddy :)


      Snoops :)

  22. You dont look very happy when wet!

    Stop on by for a visit
    Kari recently posted..What a disgusting weekendMy Profile

    • Hey Kari,

      I’ve been practising the ‘feel sorry for the soggy doggy’ look for ages – I think I’ve got it perfected now, right?! :)


      Snoops :)

  23. Hello Snoopy!
    You have to meet my dogie.. her name is yummy.. she love to play in the shower! But now, I can’t let her. She just gave birth to four cute puppies.
