Stop! Don’t Run!

I’m really miserable!

I love to run and Mum won’t let me!

If you recall, I hurt my leg a few months ago and the other day Mum caught me limping again – doh!  I tried so hard not to let her see me, but she’s got eyes in the back of her head and she caught me!

Now I’m under constant surveillance, have an appointment to see my vet later this week and worst of all, I’m not allowed to run, only walking!  It really sucks!

I even spotted that naughty Cat in our garden again the other day, do you think I was allowed to chase after him?

Mum - look!!  I need to go and chase him away!

Mum – look!! I need to go and chase him away, not just sit here and stare at him, that’s not gonna work!


Look at him, he's so smug!

Look at him, he’s so smug!


I wonder if anyone else ever gets put on restricted activity despite having super important work to do?!




  1. Cats are such teases. I hope your leg feels better soon. Elsie has been limping recently too so I’ve started adding some Green Lipped Mussel powder in her food – it’s a natural anti-inflammatory. :(

    • Hi H and Flo,

      Sorry to hear about Elsie’s limp – is she on ‘no running’ too? Thanks for the tip about the powder, my Mum hasn’t heard of that :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  2. Poor Snoopy. We hope you feel better soon.

  3. That’s just wrong. I feel your pain. Really. WOOF WOOF!

    • Thanks buddy,

      I haven’t even been given a time frame for the ‘no running’ thing – it’s so not fair!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  4. We never chase cats, but we’d feel the same way about bunnies, Snoopy. Get well! Woofs from Jeffie, Rudy and Rosie

    • Hi Guys,

      I used to be like you and didn’t chase Cats, then some started running away from me and they made me think they were like giant squirrels, now Mum’s ‘working’ on re-training me! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  5. I hope you dont mind me saying that the cat looks stunning…you too Snoopy ;)

    I hope nothing serious with your leg.

    • Thanks Kroten,

      I agree he is stunning buddy, but that doesn’t mean he can just march through MY garden!! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  6. Look at the cheek of that cat..Oh Snoops we hope your leg gets better real soon, so you can run like the wind :) xx00xxx

    Mollie and Alfie

    • Hi Mollie,

      If I could run like the wind that Cat would be too scared to set foot in MY garden – It thinks it owns the place right now – doh!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  7. Aww, you must be very frustrated, Snoopy. I remember how frustrating it was for me when I couldn’t go far long walks like I wanted to after my surgery. Try to be patient though so your leg heals well and you can run fast once again.

    My mom is cheering for that cat–it looks so cool!
    Abby Dabby Doo recently posted..Even I Can Make Ambrosia–Easy and YummyMy Profile

    • Your Mom is cheering for the Cat? Huh?

      I’m glad you’re able to go for your long walks again – I have lottsa energy so it sure is frustrating not being able to do everything I want to – sigh!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  8. Oh no Snoopy! Hope it is better soon.

    Thunder spent all of last hunting season in a cast. He was not happy!

  9. Darn, that’s awful Snoopy…But momz usually know best….just think how fast you can run after that cat once your leg is all better
    GizmoGeodog recently posted..Butterfly Puzzle for Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

    • Hi Gizmo,

      I hate it when Mum knows best – doh!! I’ll sure be making up for it when I’m all better again!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  10. Woof! Woof! It’s hard especially if you have an injury. Take care and feel better. soon. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  11. But Snoopy, you must get better. That’s tough though, sorry about the no running rule.
    Roxy the traveling dog recently posted..Do you want a custom shirt for BlogPaws?My Profile

  12. Ah, Snoopy…I know exactly how you feel. When I broke the two little bones in my wrist, I could run…only walk…and I couldn’t get very far with that darn cast on. Needless to say, the squirrels weren’t even scared of me after a while; they just stood right in front of me, with smug grins on their faces.
    Have a good day, my pal.

    • Hey Oz,

      That must have been heartbreaking after all the work to keep your yard Squirrel Free buddy, I’m worried that it will happen here, they’re already too cheeky!! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  13. Finn had 10 days of restricted activity after having surgery, but he felt terrible for most of it, so he didn’t mind!
    Hope you get well soon Snoopy!
    Coralee and Finn recently posted..Wordless Wednesday: Finally!!!My Profile

    • Hi Guys,

      Sorry to hear about Finn, but it must be a lot easier if you don’t feel up to running around either, I can’t convince myself not to do it, so it’s just really frustrating – doh! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  14. Hope you’re feeling better soon, Snoopy! Happy WW!

  15. Aw Snoopy just think of it as a day off work :) I sure hope you’re ok fast! I know ya got important things to do! Hugs!
    Max and Ma’s Ma

    • Hi Max’s Ma,

      That’s a good way to look at it, only no-one subs for me when I’m not working – it all just goes to pot and the Squirrels and Cats run riot!!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  16. Not me, but my sister has arthritis and mom keeps her from doing some stuff. So far I am in good shape. Hope it is nothing more that a pulled muscle or something with your leg!
    emma recently posted..Nosy | GBGV | Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

    • Hi Emma,

      You’re lucky buddy, I’m sure hoping it’s just a pulled muscle too, cos I can’t wait to be back to normal again really soon – Give your sis a big hug from me :)

      Snoops :)

  17. Our dog Daisy hurt her leg and she is finally getting better. She sprained it real bad and has been restricted for a while. She is now walking better. Hope Snoopy feels better soon.

  18. No running!? That’s the craziest idea I ever heard of! I hope your leg feels better soon. My prediction is that the vet will say the word no running, too! Ugh. Hang in there, buddy.

    Love and licks,

    Oh boy! How frustrating. My Lily feels your pain. She runs 90 mph at times and is not suppose to run either. Mom yells, Oye!
    Benny & Lily

  20. You look so pitiful, Snoopy. I hope you’re better soon. Won’t that cat be surprised when you’re back to your old self!
    Miss Harper Lee recently posted..Customization Made SimpleMy Profile

    • Thanks Miss Harper Lee,

      Glad you noticed how pitiful I looked, I was hoping Mum would too and relent – but alas, nope!! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  21. It’s so hard to sneak by mom when your hurt. Nice try though.

  22. Oh Snoopy! That cat is beautiful! He’d look great stuffed on your mantle. You really need to work on convincing mum to let you chase him!

  24. All the mums do it Snoops, but it’s only because we care so much. Try and cut mum a break. :-)

  25. Awww Snoopy we are sure you will be chasing cats in no time! Hoping the vet appt goes well. Your Mum is just looking out for you, she doesn’t want you to hurt!
    Love, Dakota and “Mom”

  26. Oh Snoopy, to not be able to go chase that cat must have been the worst kind of torture. We sure are sorry and hope everything works out at the vet!

  27. Poor Snoopy! It must be terrible having to be put on restrictive duty, specially now that spring is here. There’s squirrels and cats that need chasing, darn it!
    Dawn recently posted..Wordless Wednesday – Small Signs of SpringMy Profile

  28. It’s horrible when you’re not allowed to run! You’re right – that cat does look very smug. I hope your leg is better soon.
    Clowie recently posted..Tempus fugitMy Profile

    • Thanks Clowie,

      That cat is too smug by far, maybe I’ll bark next time? Just so he knows I’m still here! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  29. Snoppy that sucks. Yikes that looks like my nemesis Maudikae and I would so want to get him. Sadly we know mum has your best interests at heart. Rest easy pal. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly
    Molly The Wally recently posted..Flog It Blog It, Hatanaka Fantasticka!My Profile

    • Hey Molly,

      Do you think it is Maudikae? That’s a long way for him to have travelled!! Shall I check his tag for you? :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  30. Oh no… a hurt leg is no laughing matter and neither is limping. I’m sure your Mom is just looking out for you, she’s not really trying to be mean. Although that Cat might be! I hope you get some rest and heal up really soon.
    Emily @ Adventures of a Dog Mom recently posted..Wordless WednesdayMy Profile

  31. Your mom just wants to protect you until you are all better. Then, back to life as usual and you can chase everything!

  32. Looks like the cat was taunting! :) Hope the leg gets to feeling better!

  33. Hey Snoop – my Dex has a boo boo leg with a partial tear ACL and we are on no run rules here. Talk about no fun – try telling a Cocker no ball playing AHHHH! Hope Snoop is better soon!
    Carol Bryant recently posted..Dog Jewelry Unlike Anything You’ve Ever SeenMy Profile

    • Thanks Carol,

      I hope Dexter will get better soon, does he have anything on his leg? One of my therapy dog buddies has a leg brace for an injured ACL? Gotta be better in time for the wedding dancing dude! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  34. Oh my gosh , Snoopy! I feel for you. Rita had to be on restricted duty for a while several months ago and she was not a happy camper. Luckily it was just a sprain and some good rest helped her heal up fast. I hope it will be the same for you!
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Wordless Wednesday: Uninvited VisitorsMy Profile

    • Hi Jackie,

      I remember when it happened to Rita too – it really isn’t much fun – at least Mum’s giving me more Carrot bones to keep me occupied – yay! :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  35. Oh my goodness! Is Snoopy an Old English Sheepdog? I had one growing up named Niko. I miss that big furry guy. I bet Snoopy would get along great with my Smoosh!

    P.S. Are you going to BlogPaws? I just registered and am trying to connect with some fellow pet lovers!

    • Hi Jules,

      It’s great to meet you – I bet you had a lot of fun growing up with your OES :) I’m a Bearded Collie, very similar, main difference is I have a tail, it’s a big fluffy one, just like the rest of me :)

      Sorry I’m not going to Blogpaws this year as it’s too far for me to travel, plus it’s Mum’s birthday right in the middle of it, hope to go again next year – if you hop over to the blogpaws site they usually have a newbie section on the members forum for people to connect before they arrive! You’re gonna have lottsa fun! :)

      Big wags,

      Snoops :)

  36. Mom tries to keep Teddy from running cause he limps on his back leg all of the time. Mom tries but Teddy doesn’t listen! If your mom has some good tips on how to keep us dogs from running maybe she would share them with our mom!
    Dogs N Pawz recently posted..Wordless Wednesday #47: Rescue a Shelter Dog!My Profile

    • Hi Guys,

      Good tips? Nope, not yet, she’s still battling with me, she tells me easy, but I think I must be deaf!

      I hope Teddy gets better soon too :)

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  37. We’ve had a lot of anipals getting hurt lately — you, Dexter, now Carma Poodale!!!
