Snoopy and No Posts of the Week


Sorry folks, but I haven't spent much of the last couple of weeks in front of my computer, so I have collected very few links for the POTW. I'll just have to hang onto them and include them with my next one.

This beautiful boy is Snoopy and he belongs to one of my neighbours. One of these days, I'll have to capture a video of him because no kidding, this dog smiles when he greets people. It's a bit of a goofy look but he consistently bares his teeth in a totally non-threatening way and smiles. Snoopy had other things on his mind on this day. He was watching some of the action on the street. Kids were doing stuff and he needed to be a part of it.

Off he goes.. those long legs of his can gallop.

Luckily, Snoopy is more of a smiler than a kisser because that long tongue of his would pack a lot of drool. Glance back to the first picture and you'll see what I mean.

There's what he wanted. A perfect catch. Unfortunately, the kids spent the next minute trying to get Snoopy to return the ball. Where's the fun in that eh, Snoop dog?

LOL! Snoopy can't help but steal the ball. What a goofy, sweet dog. :)

He is such a fun looking pup! I want to play with him, too!

Stephen Hayes said...

Snoopy is cute, not Patio Bob cute but cute.

Rob-bear said...

Awesome pooch! Looks like a lot of fun.

Nadezda said...

I think he isn't young but is cute!

She Writes Here Now said...

HAh! His run reminds me of a gazelle. Looks graceful :). Sigh... I want a dog!

Stewart M said...

Hi there - he looks like a crazy (in a good way) kind of dog!

I think the wood ducks are a case of same name, rather different bird.

smiles...he looks like one that would smile...and looks like he is having fun as well...

Andy said...

It doesn't take much to make a dog happy. It's no wonder they are man's best friend.

messymimi said...

He looks like a big, goofy sweetheart. Those long legs remind me of Abraham Lincoln's comment about how a man's (or in this case, a dog's) legs have to be long enough to reach the ground.

We used to have a smiling dog named Penny. She scared a lot of people until they realized it was a grin and not a snarl.
My dear departed Marly used to smile occasionally too, but it wasn't the habit it was for Penny.

I enjoyed your series, hard to get that ball back from some dogs.

Now there's a dog who knows how to enjoy life.

Robin said...

That is one of the funniest looking dogs I've ever seen!

Daryl Edelstein said...

he looks to be part Standard Poodle .. but the rest of his lineage is hard to discern ..

NitWit1 said...

I'll take a doggie post any time. I am and unsatiable dog lover.

Gary's third pottery blog said...

gosh, is he a lab and poodle mix? labs definately have a goofy smile, ours did!

Denise at Autumn Sky said...

What a sweet dog. There really is nothing like the pure joy of a dog enjoying the moment.

TexWisGirl said...

he's a big gangly guy. :)

Sandi McBride said...

I LOVE HIM!!!

Gillian Olson said...

Dianne said...

Unusual photograph, fantastic dog. I am greeting

Gunnar H. said...

Nice and funny! And thank you for commenting my blog :)

Bob Bushell said...

Good catch Snoopy.

Barb said...

What a "goofball!"

Misty Dawn Seidel said...

Oh Snoopy is AWESOME!

Anita said...

I visited an alpaca farm while on vacation last week. In the second and third picure, Snoopy bears a resemblance to them. :)

MaggieGem said...

Snoopy looks a great, fun companion... Maddox never wants to give the ball back either, go figure!

Linda said...

Snoopy looks like a fun dog. Have he and Benny met yet? That could be interesting.

I had a Doberman once that smiled. She only did it once in all the time I had her, and that was when I was scolding her about something. She sat right down in front of me and gave me a sheepish grin. Who could stay mad in the face of that? :)

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

What a big goober!! Is this a Scottish deerhound? Long legs and long tongue make for some interesting photos. Great captures!

Red said...

Not only is this guy a smiler, he's got an interesting background by the looks of him.

SandyCarlson said...

Does Snoopy ever hang with Benny? These pups seem to have equally large and lovable personalities.

Michael Manning said...

Hi, Hilary! An unusual looking dog, but he exudes the carefree fun of summer!

Dave said...

He's a big fella Hilary. Sometimes it's hard to understand a dog's sense of humour, not wanting to give back the ball... - Dave

Betty Manousos said...

what an adorable pup! i just want to hug him tight!
great shots!

xo

Zuzana said...

Seems like he is having fun, love the name.;))

Barbara said...

He's precious! My Belle smiles like that - the happier she is, the more she grins (and wiggles) until she ends up sneezing because her nose is so squinched! But Snoopy seems to have a bit of my Max in him with that tongue and drool capacity. :)

Funny. He's a beautiful dog.
