I Need a Garden View

Today is See Beautiful Friday, it’s held once a month by my buddy Sugar the Golden Retriever.

I’ve been thinking for a while that with all the beauty out in the garden it was about time I moved my bed over to the big windows.

I mean, what could be better than watching the Squirrels out the window from your own bed?!

I packed up a few things – my blanket, a toy and started to move……

I had no idea how much work it would be…..

I’ve got my Bed half way across the lounge now…. :)


For anyone else thinking about moving for a better view, it’s harder than you imagine.  Make sure you’ve got water on hand, I got very thirsty and had to take a drink!

In the end I gave up and put my bed back by the fire place….. You’d have thought Mum could have given me a hand?

Anyone else moved for a better view? :)

Have a fun weekend everyone and watch out for my Mischief Master Class Book update – I’ll be telling you in my Mischief Post on Monday all about the exciting developments, we’re nearly there!! :)




  1. We are always accidentally moving our beds arounds when we are wrestling. It is easy when you don’t have carpet. Have a great day. Lee and Phod

    • Hey Hailey and Zaphod,

      It must be so much fun getting to wrestle whenever you want, I have to wait until Mum or Dad are in the mood – doh!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  2. Well of course you need to watch those pesky squirrels.

    • Hi Roxy

      I’m also lucky as I have carefully positioned ‘Squirrel Lookouts’ in the neighborhood and if they see one heading my way they bark and I run for the door – the only tricky bit is being patient and waiiiitttttiiiiing for Mum to finally open the door and let me out, often she’s so slow I miss them!! Doh!!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  3. Oh Snoopy! You crack me up! Moving is tough stuff and I’m sorry your Momma just stood around video taping and didn’t lend a hand. lol If I ever need help moving buddy, I’m calling on you. Thanks for the laugh! :)

    • Hi Bassetmomma,

      It makes me super happy that I made you laugh – even when I wasn’t trying!! I’d love to come and help you move, may need a lot of water! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  4. I like to scrunch mine up and I like to pull the bed covers down for Mom. Does that count?

    • Hi Sage,

      Oh you’re good – I’d do that for my Mum and Dad, only they say I’m not allowed on the bed – their loss!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  5. Hey Snoopy, You have such a beautiful coat…your Mom must spend lots of time grooming you!

  6. That was quite a workout! You deserve a treat for all that effort. We’ve been scarce after the hurricane because we just recently got power back – and lost it again after the nor’easter – but we’re back now and hopefully power (and heat and hot water!) will stay on!

  7. Snoopy you har a head worker. It was a beautiful thing to watch. Yea I think your mo could have helped out, but what ya gonna do. Good help is hard to find. Have a beautiful day.

    • Thanks Goose,

      I just rescued from spam!! Doh!! :)

      I think I’m gonna have to keep looking for some good help and in the meantime if I want a job doing I guess I’m just gonna have to do it myself!! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day Dude,

      Snoops :)

  8. OMD Snoopy did YOU ever provide entertainment for MOM this morning!!! She is STILL LAUGHING!!

    She said she LOVED how hard you were working…you even grunted a bit Pal! That was SUPER HARD WORK!!

    Mom also loved how you stopped and looked at the camera (or your Mum) with disgust on your face like, as you said, “Why don’t you help me????”

    Ohhh this was a gem Snoopy! A real gem!!!!

    Barks and licks and love, Dakota and “Mom”

    • Hey Dakota,

      SO happy I made your Mom laugh buddy – but I wasn’t even trying, I was working hard!! :) I didn’t even notice the grunt, I was so engrossed!! :)

      Yeah, you noticed despite my ‘look’ Mum never helped – typical!!

      Wags to all,

      Have fun,

      Snoops :)

  9. A+ for effort!!
    What a meanie your mummy is for not helping you!!

  10. Glad to hear the book is about ready, mom has been wondering about it because Christmas is approaching fast! Mom put the cat bed in our front window but since I kept chasing the cat out to have the view myself, last year when mom got her bonus she spent $300 on a leather bench big enough so I have a bed and the cat has a bed on it and we each have a window! I still sometimes spill over into the cat bed and he has to leave but I spend the majority of my day in MY window and I love it! I have also decorated the glass with my nose print art :)

    • Hey Emma,

      You guys are SO lucky – you’re Mum even made you a bench by the window for your beds, my Mum wouldn’t even help me move mine – doh!!

      Christmas sure is approaching fast, Mum’s excited as she loves Christmas, but she also keeps getting anxious as she’s trying so hard to get this book out on time – I’m posting an update today, we’re looking good – I’ve got my paws crossed we don’t hit any major hurdles :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  11. Woof! Woof! Oh your mom did not help you. In my “other” house I got 3 beds, 2 of them got a very nice window view. It’s winter time so being by the fireplace is not sooo bad. Happy This Moment See beautiful Friday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  12. That reminds me of the video of the dog who tried to move his little kiddie pool from the patio inside…did you see that? So funny! Anyway, Snoopy, I think you should suggest to your mom to get you 2 or 3 beds, one for each different location you like, and then you won’t have to move your bed! Hugs from Kelly and Brooks

    • Hi Peggy,

      I didn’t see that video – I’ll have to look for it :)

      I so think I need lots of beds in different locations, cos moving that big bed is just way too much work!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  13. I thought you’d be there all day Snoops, the squirrels would of gone to bed by the time you got there..BOL Go have a nap now, you must be exhausted.. xxooxxx

    • Hi Mollie and Alfie,

      Are you making fun of me? I was trying my best, you wanna feel how heavy this bed is buddy!! :)

      I sure took a big nap after – phew!!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  14. BOl funny Snoopy. Next time I need the removal men or my bed needs taking for a walk I am just going to give you a call pal. Love the water break. Must be thirsty work? Can’t wait for your exciting news. Have a fabulous Friday.
    Best wishes Molly

    • Thanks Molly,

      Oh I sure was very thirsty – just glad I had water on hand, you can’t start this task without proper resources!! Maybe I should start a removal business?! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  15. You are so smart to try and move for a better view, Snoopy! But, geesh, your Mum could have helped out, huh?? Rita likes her bed where it is, but she puts in a big effort getting the blanket on top of it “just right”!
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Just Chew ItMy Profile

    • Hi Jackie,

      You’d have thought Mum could have helped, but she’s never useful when I need her to be – doh!!

      Hope you’re all having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  16. What a clever dog you are moving for a better view. You worked so hard to get that bed to move. I guess the fireplace is a good view too.

    • Hi Missy,

      Yep, the fireplace is good at night as I’m close to the family when they watch TV, but in the day I think I’d like to watch the Squirrels – Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  17. What hard work but all for a better view :-) Cocco is constantly moving his bed and blanket and half of the time he roots them into his water dish so everything gets soaking wet!

    Oink oink,

    • Hi KAtie,

      My bed got to stay dry as I didn’t manage to get it anywhere near to the water bowl – probably for the best as I’m not sure there was enough room to have got it past and stay dry anyway!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  18. Psst Snoops, it would be a little easier if you moved the bed in one direction only. teehee Who are we kidding, we could never have moved our beds as far as you did. Well maybe Storm could. Have a nice weekend.

    • Hi Browndawgs,

      Yeah, when I watched the video I realized I was kinda going around in circles, no wonder I wasn’t making much progress?! Doh!!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  19. Moving dog beds is hard work! I can’t believe your Mom didn’t put the camera down and help you! lol!

  20. Apparently, mom enjoys being the witness rather than part of the action. Looks like you’ve got work cut out for you while mommy is laughing and shooting your every move.


    Huggies and Cheese,

  21. Sounds like you’re feeling all good again, great to see. Moving for a better view? What a cool idea. Our guys get to spend weekends at friends’ horse farm, though, no view needed when you get to be outside all day.

  24. AW….Snoopy…you are such a smart doggie!!!
