Monday Mischief – Swim Snoopy!

Have you ever heard of a Doggie Dip Day?  I’d seen a few of my friends enjoying a day at their local swimming pool, but our pool had never done it – until a couple of weeks ago!

Woohoo! Mum made sure I was brushed out the day before (loose hair and water don’t work out well together!) and we headed off.  Mum was really happy it was a lovely, hot day, perfect for a splash!


Oh boy, this is popular, can you see how long the line was and we were there early!

By the time I got in, I was a little nervous……


"Hey Dude, come on in and join us, it's fun in here!"

“Hey Dude, come on in and join us, it’s fun in here!”


I'd never been swimming before, so I just dipped a toe in to start with!

"Hey Mum, look at me - this is great!"

“Oh I’m not sure about this, it’s getting deeper!”


I discovered a great game though - It's called, how many people can I get wet when I shake! See, you can get up to mischief anywhere!

Mum took these little videos of me cautiously having fun at the pool, in the second one you’ll see how well I did at getting the little girls wet!  Tee Hee

    • Hi Guys

      Thanks for your compliments on my swimming effort, as a first timer I was a little nervous about not being able to touch the bottom and then of course I also didn’t want to get all my coat wet, there were girlies around to impress! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  2. Wow you guys are still in short sleeves!? Man the weather must be still very hot over there!!!! Hugs, Francesca

    • Hi Francesca

      You’re right, it’s only cold in the night here, in the day it’s lovely and sunny and warm still, we’re very lucky! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  3. Looks like lot of fun , Snoopy :)
    Mischief’s ?! Me ?!
    No No *mol*

    • Hi Charlie

      It sure was buddy, I couldn’t stop barking I was so excited!

      What do you mean no mischief, huh? I can’t imagine not doing any mischief – Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  4. Dad was watching your videos and I heard you and came running, I know that bark anywhere! Dad replayed the videos so that I could see the mischief my uncle was getting into… whoohoo… Dad says that you sure talk allot, I was impressed with your ability to disperse water over as many humans as doggedly possible when you shake! Paws up Unc!

    • Hey Tig,

      That’s so cute that you came running when you heard me! Haha Mum couldn’t believe how vocal I was cos I don’t normally bark that much, but I was having so much fun! Especially when I got to soak the humans, there was one lady sitting down and I can’t her more times than I can remember, I’m sure she remembers every single time though! Tee Hee

      Big paws up to you little fluffy nephew,

      Have fun, any sign of that snow yet?

      Uncle Snoops :)

  5. Two French Bulldogs says:

    No I never did. I will stick to the beach


  6. That looks like soo much fun!! Very cool that your city does that… I think everyone on our city council would have to die before anything like that happened in my town :(
    Christine and Riley recently posted..Monday Mischief: Aliens Are Among UsMy Profile

    • Hi Christine and Riley,

      Oh so sorry you don’t think you’ll have the same fun in your city :( I was super excited to hear I could get to do it, it’s in the town over from us, but it’s not far away :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  7. I have never heard of Doggie Dip Day!

    Elka doesn’t like it either when the water gets too deep, and she has far less hair than yours to get all wet!

  8. How fun. There is a pool around here that let’s dogs swim before they empty the pool. We have never gone. Chester & Gretel aren’t fans of the water. I am also a little concerned about the chlorine in the pool. Do they neutralize it before they let the dogs in?
    Jessica@YouDidWhatWithYourWeiner recently posted..Help Fight Canine Cancer by Taking Photos of Your DogMy Profile

    • Hi Jessica

      Our understanding is that they had the minimal amount of chlorine in it, but I had a bath anyway the moment I got home – of course, any excuse for Mum to give me a bath! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  9. I love swimming. I wish the pool where I live would let dogs swim in it. But I agree with you – one of the best parts of swimming is seeing how many people you can get wet.
    Bongo recently posted..The BanquetMy Profile

  10. It sure looks like fun! I’ve never had a chance to get into a pool, but I do occasionally fall in the lake over here, and when we go to the beach I often get myself all wet trying to chase sea gulls (which I do on leash, because my parents want to make sure my lifetime hit rate doesn’t rise above zero).
    Tootsie recently posted..Black and Tan and WhiteMy Profile

    • Hey Tootsie

      Sounds like the humans might be onto you buddy!! Stay safe and don’t fall into the deep end! I nearly fell in the deep end, I went to get in and realized I couldn’t touch the bottom and scrambled back out, I liked to go in from the shallow end :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  11. A couple of the pools around us do something similar but we’ve never made it there. Plus I’m not sure if Mr. N would go in without me and they don’t let humans in the water.

    • Hey there,

      I wouldn’t have gone in without Dad either and when he was going to get out, I put my paws on him to make him stay in longer! Tee Hee – They said on the flyer people weren’t allowed in the pool, but I guess they relaxed the rules when we all got there :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  12. Hi Y’all!

    Why Snoopy! It looked to me like in the end you were getting as far away as possible from that water!

    Y’all come by now!

    • Haha Hawk,

      Well I had to keep going to check on the dogs in the other part of the pool, it was the deep end and I couldn’t swim over there so I had to keep getting out and running over to see what they were up to! :)

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  13. Now that is my kind of fun! I bet your mom had a blast getting your fur back in order once you dried off! Shaking off by the humans is always a great idea, they love it, it makes them run usually!
    emma recently posted..First Snow Fun | GBGV | Monday MischiefMy Profile

    • Haha Emma

      Yep, I also think the humans loved getting a little Beardie Shower, it was a hot day, I was keeping them cool!

      I was nearly dry when we got back home (my coat dries super fast), so guess what Mum and Dad did, yep, they soaked me again and gave me a bath – doh!

      I hope you’re having a fun day,

      Snoops :)

  14. So much FUN and I’m so jealous. Happy Monday. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  15. That’s amazing! Nothing like that over here. Looks like a great time :-)

  16. That looks like so much fun!! Torrey would have a blast.

  17. That is so much fum! I wish we had a pool like that around here!

  18. Snoopy! Were you stressed or having fun? It looks like both!
    Flea recently posted..Funny Bone Monday, 47My Profile

    • Hi Flea

      I was having a blast, I even told Dad off when he tried to get out and I put my paws on him to go back in and play with me, however, I didn’t like it if I couldn’t touch the bottom and I would back out, shake off, run around and go back in to see if it got any shallower! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  19. What a fun day! I love the pic of you shaking off, you look like you’re having a great time! It sounds so funny to us here on the other side of the country to hear that you’re swimming in November – we have predictions of snow flurries for tomorrow! :)
    Daisy recently posted..Life Can Change In One Second…..My Profile

  20. Snoopy what a cool idea. We can see it was a good excuse for a barkfest pal and we loved your attempt at giving the girls a shower. Pawsome mischief. Have a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  21. BOL!!!! Your shakes look like they could wet down a 3-alarm fire, Snoopy! I love it!

    • Haha Oz

      Oh yes, I sure can ‘wet you down’ – when I have a bath Mum tells me not to shake until she’s out of the way, but sometimes I get the timing wrong! Tee Hee

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  22. Excellent job getting so many people wet! You have excellent hair for that, although I have my own way of getting people wet… rub up against them as many times as possible after my bath. ~Cooper

  23. Oh, Snoopy, that looks like a lot of fun! And it’s been so darn hot here, it’s perfect swimming weather!
    Jackie Bouchard recently posted..Monday Mischief: Rita – Confused About Vet’s Day…My Profile

  24. You kept after those girls, Snoops! After the first time, they made sure to keep their eyes on you!

    Your barking got Mr. Cool barking, too. Ha! Bark Bark Bark.

    Have a great day!
    Kris, Neighbor Chick recently posted..Busyness blobMy Profile

    • Haha Kris,

      That’s funny that Mr. Cool joined in with my barking – I got myself so excited in the water! :) And out, when I was wetting everyone! Tee Hee

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  25. OMD OMD OMD what super fun, we have nothing like that across the pond :(… Just love that shaking photo of you :) Big Hugs Snoops xxoxxx

  26. Snoopy, you sure were having fun, and seemed to have a lot to say about the experience!! You did great at getting in the water for your first time. And you caught on quickly to what every dog loves to do when they swim….shake off on people!
    Jan K recently posted..Black & White Sunday – First SnowMy Profile

    • Hi Jan

      Thanks, it was quite tricky, I needed to get wet enough to have enough water for the shake, but not go too deep so I couldn’t stand up! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  27. LOL Snoopy. That looks like fun! You sure had a lot to say about the pool. Those girls got a nice shower too. :) Hopefully you came back after you ran away!

    • Hi Browndawgs,

      Oh yeah, I just enjoyed running all over the place to see what was going on and then I’d come back to the pool, I liked it best if I got in at the shallow end, I worked out pretty fast not to go in from the side – too deep! :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  28. OMGoodness, Snoopy! You were barking up a storm at Dip Day! You might have been the happiest doggie there. It looked like a ton of fun!

    Love and licks,

  31. Hi Snoopy!
    It looks really cool in that pool :-)
    We have nothing like that here in my town.
    Love the videos!
    Big hug from Stina :-)
    Stina af Pinscher recently posted..Monday Mischief / No Parking here Stina :-)My Profile

    • Hey Stina

      Sorry you haven’t got a pool too, it’s actually in the next town, but it’s not far away and so worth the drive :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  32. What fun! My doggies don’t really swim, and in fact, we’d never even successfully given our Mia a bath… until yesterday. We’ve had her more than two years! Both dogs got baths yesterday. They would have had more fun at the pool with you, but it’s pretty cold up here in Northwest Washington.
    Kari recently posted..NaNoWoofMoMy Profile

  33. That looks like so much fun! My dog LOVES the water, but he’s never gone to something like this. Just the beach (which is also pretty great).

    • Hey Lindsay

      Yep the beach sure looks like fun too, the timing has to be just right for mum to let me go into water, as she needs to have groomed me (water and loose hair in my coat will mean matts), plus she has to be able to wash me straight after to get everything out of my coat again, so the pool party just happened to work out great! :)

      Hope you’re having a fun day :)

      Snoops :)

  34. I’ve never seen a wet bearded collie before. You look like you had the bestest time ever!! And I love that you gave the guy in the chair a false sense of security by not getting him the first time but doubling back a second time. Well done pal!

    • Thanks Dalton,

      My ‘getting people wet’ skills are second to none!! Tee Hee – Yeah, I look so different when wet, I’m sure I don’t impress the girlies half as much :)

      Wags to all,

      Snoops :)

  35. OMD! We wish our local pool did that! We would looove it! That is so cool you got to do that and you had fun :)
