Squirrels don’t wait for a Dodgy Leg!

I’m kinda in a little trouble with Mum, cos I over did it on Squirrel watch and I’ve hurt my knee again!  Doh!

I’ve been struggling on and off this year with a partial tear to my ACL

After doing great for months, these last couple of days I’ve been limping around a bit, now Mum’s banned, yes banned me from the garden (I can hear the Squirrels laughing!) and I’m off to the vet (again) on


Mum’s also threatened to show him the thing on one of my other legs that I can’t stop licking – this week isn’t going to plan, I don’t have time for this!

I'm just saying Mum, you'll be sorry you let the Squirrels have the run of the garden, they can't be trusted!

I’m just saying Mum, you’ll be sorry you let the Squirrels have the run of the garden, they can’t be trusted!


I’m gonna have so much to do when Mum finally lifts my garden ban!

Have a Wonderful Wednesday everyone :)



  1. Haha! Just wait – those squirrels won’t know what hit them when you return with renewed gusto.

  3. Oh Snoopy!
    I am sorry to learn about your leg. I have a trick hip/leg too that shakes and skips around when I do too much walking. Sometimes people make fun of Momma when she rolls me around in a doggie stroller. But it sure helps relieve my hip when I do therapy visits. I say your pawrents should buy you an ‘easy’ button launcher that launches dandelions at the squirrels when they get too sassy. All you have to do is sit at your perch and press the button when you see them. Feel better soon! WOOF.

  4. Oh dear, Snoopy! While you can’t let those squirrels take over your garden, you also can’t let them aggravate your knee. Hope all goes well at the vet…

    • Hi Bethany

      I sure is difficult to weigh up the best thing to do, at least it is for me, Mum doesn’t seem to have any problem enforcing the ban! Doh!

      Wags to all

      Snoops :)

  5. Poor Snoopy!!! Sending quick healing thoughts. Good luck tomorrow at the vet.

  7. Snoopy, I know how tempting those squirrels can be, but ACL issues are no fun – take care of yourself.

  8. Those silly squirrels can get the best of a pup can’t they? I hope your knee checks out OK!

  9. Oh no!!! We hope your knee is feeling better real soon….darn squirrels!!!

  10. Oh No Snoopy! You better do what they say, or things could go from bad to worse.

  11. Oh Snoopy, so sorry to hear about your leg and knee. You better take care of yourself as you don’t want to end up having surgery or something, that would be awful! If I lived closer I would be happy to come over and handle the squirrel issues while you are laid up, but it is a bit too far for me. Be good to yourself and if you are just licking and you don’t have a sore or something, put athletes foot powder spray on it, it seriously works. A breeder told Mom about it for Katie because she does that. It stops the itching and the taste isn’t good, so she stops licking.

    • Hi Emma

      I was getting all excited then that you were gonna come over and help me out :(

      Unfortunately I have a boo boo on my paw, Mum’s not sure if I made it or not, but thanks for the advise, I’m sure it will come in handy in the future!

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  13. Snoopy you need to listen to your Mum so that your leg heals! Feel better soon pal! Barks and licks and love, Dakota

    • Thanks Dakota

      I’m trying my best to listen to hear, it’s just hard to hear her over the Squirrels laughing at me! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  14. Oh no! Rest that leg so it can get better! Hope your visit to the vet goes well.

  15. Oh no Snoopy. What can we say. Good luck at the blood stealers. We feel your pain at being banned from the garden. It is a tragedy. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  16. Snoops! You’ve got to take care of yourself, so you can keep those squirrels in line.

  17. Vlad & Barkly's Dee says:

    Poor Snoopy! Vlad can completely sympathize with you. After developing a “possible” OCD of his shoulder when he was almost 6 mths old, he’s not been able to get loose to chase the wildlife since–not once to this day. The evil caretakers won’t let him go anywhere off-leash.

    Just be careful, Snoopy, and know your servant is right about you taking it easy. Those squirrels will still be there when they let you loose again! In fact, you might actually have more to play (attack) with once you’re able to get out there again! You can count the days until January with Vlad!

    • Oh no poor Vlad

      I’m sending you big wags buddy, you must be so miserable not chase those pesky Squirrels!

      I’m hoping to get back out on patrol really soon!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  18. Poor Snoopy! It’s those pesky squirrels’ fault.

    • Hi Dawn,

      I know you’re right, I should sue them for cookie compensation to get me through this trauma of being stuck inside! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  19. Hi there Snoop – long time, no sniff. I know what you are saying – my Dexter had to have the ACL surgery after months of Conservative Management. You are still as cute as ever. I hope to see you at BlogPaws in Vegas!
    Carol Bryant recently posted..Natural or Organic or Botanical: What Dog Product Labels MeanMy Profile

    • Hi Carol

      I hope Dexter is on the road to recovery, I saw he had to have surgery, so far I’m hanging in and avoiding the full tear!

      See ya in Vegas!

      Snoops :)

  20. Oh, Snoopy, I’m sorry to hear you are limping. I hope you’ll take it easy and heal up! You might have to let the squirrels “win” for now – but then they’ll get fat and complacent and you’ll be able to catch them easily when you are fully back in the game! Think how much fun that will be! Feel better soon!
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Wordless Wednesday: Caption These PupsMy Profile

  21. Snoopy you need some help – perhaps you need to talk to your mom about getting a lil puppy to train up to cover squirrel watch? Or perhaps even (and I can’t believe I’m saying this) a c-a-t? Hope you feel better soon buddy! *Waggy tail*

    • Haha Alfie

      Are you crossing over to the other side? I’m not sure I could resist chasing the CAT though! :) But I’m all for getting one of the pups, just wish I could convince the humans! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  22. Oh, Snoopy, some days are just harder than others. Hope your trip to the vets goes well and that you heal quickly. I mean, someone has to keep those pesky squirrels in line!
    sassmuffins recently posted..You Did What?My Profile

    • Hi Sassmuffins

      You’re right, maybe you wanna come over to help in the meantime? Sure they won’t mess with you! :) I’ll do my best not to chase you :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  23. Oh, Snoopy, I’m so sorry about your bad knee. It’s just part of the sneaky squirrel plan. They’re evil little things. Paws crossed that your vet visit goes well and you’re back on squirrel patrol very, very soon.

  24. Feel better soon, buddy. Squirrels!! They’re treacherous!! I hope your legs are both OK and that the vet gives you some treats and yummy medicine.

    Love and licks,

  25. Ya gotta take it easy Snoop and let that leg heal up all the way…I promise those squirrels will still be there when you’re 100%

  26. Oh Snoops, rest up Pal. The squirrels will still be there when you’re all better
    Misaki recently posted..WW: StretchMy Profile

  27. Those squirrels won’t know what hit them when you return without limping :)

  28. Oh Snoopy. It was definitely the squirrels fault – but you gotta watch that leg. I hope the thing you’ve been licking at turns out to be nothing. Good luck at the vet!

  29. Snoopy, Humphrey would say a squirrel a day. But I think the Vet will say something else! Rest your paws, and then you will be able to run like the wind

  30. Oh no, Snoopy!
    It’s true, squirrels wait for no dog but to have hurt yourself chasing those evil vermin?!? I sure hope your vet appointment goes well and that you will not be banned from the garden for much longer.
    Your pal,

  33. Snoopy, you need an acorn bazooka. Just sit on the back porch, mojito in paw, and wait for the squirrels. Pew! Pew pew! Pick ‘em off without harming your leg. Easy peasy.

    • Hi Coccolino,

      Great news, the ban appears to have been lifted, I’m still getting the “easy” talk when I go too fast, but the Squirrels fun time is over! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  38. Poor Snoopy make shure to rest! Don’t worry soon you will be back in the garden soon!! <3

  39. Oh, Snoopy, those squirrels can be such teasers! We have one who made a nest in the Husky’s tree right above their reach level and has squawked at them and tossed nuts at them! Sorry about your partial CCL tear…we just rehabbed Gibson and now our Harley is rehabbing from the same thing. We’re doing Conservative Care Treatment with a brace and laser therapy and natural anti-inflams…slow and long rehab…but our paws are crossed that we can avoid surgery. Hope you’re doing well, Snoopy. And we hope your tear heals (but don’t chase those squirrels!)

    • Hi Fivesibesmom,

      Your Squirrels are SO rude! I’ve had things thrown at me from them too, they’re naughty!

      I hope Harley is better soon, big wags,

      Snoops :)

  40. Oh no Snoopy! Hope all is well!

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  41. I hope you are back to snuff in no time Snoopy and I do hope that is not a lick Granuloma on your leg. Those things stink!!
