Stay Hydrated in the Warm Weather

Mum says that just like Humans us Dogs need to stay hydrated and it’s especially important when the weather starts getting warmer…..

We go running each morning, so when we get back I always make sure I have a nice cool drink!! :)

One big gulp and it's all gone….. Tee Hee


Just kidding – I didn’t really drink it – I have water – but did you know I can get the cap off in less than a minute, no matter how tight it is?!  It’s kinda like my party trick…… :)

I wonder if other Doggies have party tricks too?


  1. You are a very talented doggie Snoopy. We need video…

    • Hi BrownDawgs,

      We definitely have video of my talent – maybe Mum can fish it out – she’s in charge of that kinda stuff – I just perform!! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  2. Daisy just chews the tops off water bottles, true to her Destructo-Pup name…. ;)

    • Hey Daisy,

      That’s a great start, but you know it’s easier AND faster to flick them off right? Then I hand them over to Mum so she can see how fast I was :)

      Have fun buddy,

      Snoops :)

  3. Great party trick Snoopy!! Fred like water bottle tops. :)

    • Hi Bassetmomma,

      Yay for Freddie – he’s discovered the fun too!! Maybe I can have a race with him? Sorry, I’m a little competitive!! Tee Hee

      Wags to the gang,

      Snoops :)

  4. I agree with 2BrownDawgs, I’d love to see that video. Did mom teach it to you or did you figure it out all on your own?

    Delilah’s party trick is eating all the food. She’s good at it too! LOL

    • Hi Jodi,

      I will definitely get that video off Mum – I learnt it all on my own – I used to be just under 2 minutes, but I practiced!! :)

      I like the sound of Delilah’s party trick, maybe I should practice that one too? She’s a great Mischief Maker :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  5. Benny & Lily says:

    Mom is right, drink lots of water!

  7. Yep, we are big fans of water too, especially when we are hiking.

    • Hi Roxy,

      Do you carry your own? I usually get Mum to carry it – Tee Hee

      Do you like ice cubes too – I’ll sit really nicely for one of those :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  8. What a great party trick. A video is a must.

  9. That is a neat party trick. My dogs will just do simple spin tricks or play dead.
    Dawn recently posted..Wordless Wednesday – Fun in the Sun DogsMy Profile

    • Thanks Dawn,

      I think you’re being modest, playing dead and spinning are seriously good party tricks – I haven’t even mastered those yet!! Great job guys!! :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  10. Don’t drink too much Snoopy or you will have stomachache ;)
    Papoe recently posted..Wordless Wednesday: Who Ate The Leaf?My Profile

    • Wise words Papoe,

      I’ll tell you a secret, I didn’t really drink the Gatorade, Mum did – I get water and the empty bottle to play with :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  11. Hey Snoop, Jet here.

    I think you should offer your vast media skills and services to G2 and pose with our favorite… DWade (Dwayne Wade of the Miami Heat!) He likes to run and rehydrate, too… you could even offer to open the bottle for him!!! :)
    Jet recently posted..Wordless Wednesday – Graceful Swimming…My Profile

    • Hey Jet,

      What a great idea!! I could be his official bottle opener!! :) Mum says it’s a great way to recycle – she drinks it, I use it as a toy, then when I’m done it goes to the recycle bank – we all win!! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  12. Woof! Woof! Mmmm you are sure getting GOOD!!! Happy WW! Lots of Golden ALOHA n Woofs, Sugar
    Golden Woofs! SUGAR recently posted..Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

  13. Hey Snoopy! Great party trick! i haven’t tried that before! The only time i came close to a bottle, it fell onto the marble floor and made a really loud GONG sound! Mom had to help me extinguish my phobia of it for 1 whole hour!! Bol. Silly me.

    Happy Wordless Wednesday pal!!

    With Love,

    • Hey there Popcorn,

      Sorry to hear about the noisy bottle incident, glad your Mum was there to look after you :)

      Have a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  14. You have got the talent Snoopy!

  15. That’s one great trick you’ve learnt there Snoops.
    Glad to hear you’re keeping your H2O levels up. We’re doing that in England at the moment too – we’re having an unusual heatwave in May :)
    High five my friend X

    • Hi Helen,

      Yep, we were talking to family in the UK yesterday and they looked HOT!! Quite unusual, they’re normally all wrapped up!! :)

      Enjoy the sun :)

      Your pal Snoopy :)

  16. Snoopy thank goodness that wasn’t a bottle of beer!!!! We would have worried about you!

    Oh Mom said you are preaching to the choir about water! Cause of her chronic kidney stones she has to drink over 100 ounces of water a day….DOUBLE that in hot weather!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Hi Dakota,

      Mum says I’m not old enough to drink beer!! Doh!! :)

      100 ounces sounds like a lot – if that was me I’d have lots more ice cubes, cos I love them! :) I hope your Mum is feeling better soon :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  17. I had a talk with Dublin while I was in Arizona and told him it was important to stay hydrated since it’s so much hotter out in the desert.

    That’s a cool party trick! Linus knows how to play dead (he responds to the command “BANG!”). And of course Stetson is really good at sleeping :)

    Happy Wednesday!
    Colby recently posted..Wordlesss Wednesday – Apache, A Guide Dog Puppy In TrainingMy Profile

    • Good job Colby,

      We don’t want Dublin getting too hot in his new surroundings – I bet it was great to see him again :)

      I would love to see Stetson doing “BANG” – that must be funny :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  18. That is an awesome party trick Snoopy!!! You must be a very smart dog :)

  19. Well said! And great trick! It is getting hot, it was 101 degrees here today!
    Dachshund Nola recently posted..Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

    • Yikes Nola,

      Does it get humid too? Luckily we don’t get humidity here, but today it’s 96F wowzers!! :)

      Have fun in the shade,

      Snoops :)

  20. Great advice, Snoops! You are one smart puppy. Diesel just loves to destroy water bottles … he’s not as talented as you and can’t drink the water out of them first!! :)
    Kas recently posted..Day 16: Riding is a partnership.My Profile

    • Hi Kas,

      Mum did teach me to drink from bottles, but my favorite are the ones with the squirty end as Mum can squirt the water in my mouth!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  21. You are always full of surprises!!
    Julie recently posted..Ta da!! The kitchen is (pretty much) done!My Profile

  22. Good party trick! As long as you don’t eat it after (JD would). He can get it off quickly enough, but if we don’t take it away he’ll eat it. He still doesn’t get the concept of food and non-food things. *sigh

    Staying hydrated, particularly when it’s hot, definitely very important!
    Jana Rade recently posted..Using Ivermectin For Demodectic Mange?My Profile

    • Hi Jana,

      Mum taught me to spit the cap out and leave it for her to pick up when I’m done, I do the same when I get the label off too – then I put my tongue in the bottle to see if I can taste any Gatorade? Even though Mum rinses it, I can taste it a little!! Yum yum :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  23. That is a good party trick Snoopy! Our best party trick is stealing someone’s seat when they get up to get more food or go to the bathroom :)

  24. I always take that advice. But what I’m worried about are my pets. They look so tired when the weather’s hot. What so you recommend for me to do?


    • Hi Alex,

      We usually try to go early or late when it isn’t too hot, always walk in the shade and bring some water – hope these tips help! :)

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  25. If there’s not water nearby (river, mud-puddle, whatever), Mom takes a big jug of water along because I get hot. I mean really HOT. So, I know what you mean, Snoopy. Water is good!!
    Sage recently posted..Hi There!My Profile

    • Hi Sage,

      Your Mum is very sensible buddy!! Water is great – I like it liquid or Ice!! Yum yum :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  26. Hey, Snoopy, if you’re so good at taking caps off, how about you come bartend at my next party? :-)
