SNOOPY DOG...by b. Malin

A DOG STORY...FOR PEOPLE

Hi Everybody, My name is "Snoopy". Before I start my story, which I could have called my Tale, (Tail) Ha, Ha, Get it? I've got to tell you, that I'm So Vain...Carly Simon probably wrote that Song about me...Eat your Heart out Mick Jagger. Anyway, How do you think I look Best...with, or without my READING Glasses? Please let me know when you leave a Comment for b. Malin to read. Then she can let me know, for I am her Dog, her Companion, of about 25 years...I know (sigh) I know, I look SO YOUNG. Now for "Our" story...

b. Malin's friend "Harold" brought me into her life because of a Good Deed...She went Shopping with him at "Macy's", to help him buy a Gift, for his then future wife. I was an Extra added Treat if a certain amount was spent. Ok, Ok, Honestly, I cost $5.00. Harold bought me for b. Malin. It was LOVE at first sight for ME, and I am still with b. Malin...Still Crazy for her. Harold, who did eventually marry, is no longer married to that woman, AND, Harold is Dead...He passed away a few years back. I know, Sad. I don't get that emotional, I'm a Dog, but it was Sad.

b. Malin eventually married "Lover Man"...I humbly accepted 2nd place. I used to sit upon her bed, but after the marriage, I was put in the "Guest Room" on the sofa bed. It was ok, I still had Good Hearing, and didn't miss out on ANYTHING.........Oh fill in the Blanks Folks, Fill in the Blanks. Now if you've taken your minds out of the GUTTER, I shall continue. Just remember, she is my Mistress. Wow, that sounds kinda of kinky. Ok, on with the story...

The Happy Couple bought a "Condo", it was nice. I still lived in the Den, but it was ok, it had a TV, and when they weren't home, I'd turn it on and watch 60 minutes...What? you thought I'd say "Lassie" or some Dog Movie. PLEASE DON'T STEREOTYPE ME. There were "Happy Times" and there were some "Sad Times"...

b. Malin's Niece, the Artist died by her own choice of death...and b. Malin held me close on many a night, and just let the tears flow, Lover Man sat beside us, and held us close. That was the worst of times...The very worst of Times.

Happy times...so many...the Birth of Grandchildren, and watching them grow...that was Special...Moving to a House...NO, I still didn't get back into the Bedroom... The "Secret Room in the House"...That's where I stayed. The Grandkids would play with me when they came to visit. By this time, I'd lost my Hat & Scarf...b. Malin and I never cared for them anyway.

Then, a few years back we moved again, it was called "Downsizing". The house was smaller, and I was now to live in the added on Sun Porch. Oh it's Beautiful, with so many Windows to look out of...I sit in a Rocking Chair...I now need Reading Glasses...So does b. Malin. I think Lover Man is BLIND without his Glasses...Or is it just wishful thinking...Just Doggie Kidding. He's ok, he's grown on me. Now, are you ready for this? I just HEARD that we are going to be Moving AGAIN, this time to FLORIDA! I'd heard about the Condo w/the View...And b. Malin said she was taking ME there this winter. Of course I'm excited...And I don't care where I'm going to sit. It's just all SO Exciting! They want to sell the house in NJ next Spring, so I'm NEVER coming back. Excuse me while I Pant...We Dogs do that when we're Happy. Ok, I'm done PANTING... So, tell me now, How do I look? You could be Honest...I won't BITE you...I can't. Bet you thought I'd say, "cause I Haven't got Any Teeth"! Well maybe in my Next Life... But I'm not leaving b. Malin anytime soon...And hey, b. Don't forget to pack the Suntan Lotion. "BARK, BARK... THAT'S ALL FOLKS".

Your story is very funny. Snoopy looks good with his glasses and it makes him look more intelligent, haha.

Voted up funny and awesome. Good luck selling your home, Joyce.

Hey B...This was adorable...Snoopy has it going on after all these years..I do believe I like the glasses..it makes him look very sophisticated and kind of sexy...(don't tell him he may get a big head) Thanks for the smiles.

So cute! I love Snoopy with his reading glasses. He sounds really sweet and faithful and I'm sure you love him very much! I really like this hub! Congrats on moving to Florida! Voting this up and more! :)

Hi Snoopy

We all have heard of a funny bone. Well Snoopy dog you have a funny tail.

I hope you, b Malin and lover man will be happy in Florida. Maybe you will get to go to Disney World. Wouldn't that be fun?

I think you look best without your glasses

Voted up across the board.

Take care :)

To Snoopy: Dear Snoop, you look like an intellectual with your glasses.

But when you get to Florida you may want to trade them in for the real thing - celebrity-looking sunglasses. That Florida sun can be hard on the eyes.

I know you will love the sunshine state

And B. and Lover Man may even find you a date. Promise!

b. must stand for bond. You certainly bonded with Snoopy the family mascot and bank full of memories both happy and sad. Sounds like you have discovered an interesting retirement plan that includes leaving snow behind.

Florida will be good. And Snoopy is brilliant, afterall, he did write this hub. Sounds like the move is the next chapter. Can't wait to hear about the details.

Hi Snoopy, it is real good of you to take over hubbing while 'B' is busy packing. So nice to meet you and good to know that she has a loyal friend to take care of her.

You must be so excited, bye bye snow... hello sunshine.

Hi Snoopy, nice to meet you, I'm so jealous.

Wish I could move to Florida right now. In England there is a chill in the air and we are looking forward to rain, floods and months of misery, I wish you and b. Malin the best of luck.

You Look Mah-velous, Snoops!

i have no idea why this hub made me laugh AND cry - both at the same time! Absolutely loved it!

b. Malin is sooo lucky to have you, AND vice versa - i'd love to live in a swinging chair on a nice warm porch - especially in florida!

Where ya moving to in florida, Snoops - cause - i'm coming that way tooooo!

Can't express how much i enjoyed! Great imagination - lovely family - blind or not!

Aw, I love Snoopy, though he looks a little bit too intellectual in those specs. He probably revealed a bit more about himself than he realised and is clearly a dawg for every occasion - happy and sad. Not surprising that they are called '(wo)man's best friend' :o)

A very funny way to share your move via dog's tale. I love Snoopy and have three of them, but one fell in the floor and my cat took advantage and peed on it. (After all, Snoopy is a dog.) I'm still trying to decide if he can go through the washer. Anyway, good luck to you and yours in your move. Voted you up and funny.

Hi Sgbrown,

Thank You. Not only do I LOVE him...So do all my Female Friends. He always gets to sit on someone's Lap...and Oh the things he gets to Hear.

We are NOT yet moving, but will be spending some time there this Winter. Hope to sell our NJ home next Spring...Then we MOVE! Thanks for your Thoughts and of course, your Votes.


b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Sueswan,

"Snoopy" says Thank You...Bark, Bark.

Everything is a Plan, but we do LOVE Florida and have Friends there...So, hopefully when we sell NJ we will Go! Thanks for your Comments and of course your Votes.


b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Drbj,

"Bark, Bark" and Thank You. Of course Remember, I only need the Glasses when I'm reading my "Fan Mail"..."Snoopy" said to tell you. I'm going to write all your Suggestions down for b. Malin & Lover Man to do for ME in Florida..."Celebrity" Sun Glasses is on the Top of my List.


b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Mckb,

Leaving that Snow behind is definitely part of the Big Plan. "Snoopy" can't wait to get going, and is already packing his Googles, and Flippers. He'll get to stay down there, but WE will come back in the Spring to sell the NJ house. "Snoopy" will be the WatchDog in Florida.


b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi A.A.

Florida will definitely be GOOD...And "Snoopy" is really now into the whole Idea...Yes, the final MOVE...that will be another Chapter in our Crazy Lives. But it's on hold for now, until we sell NJ.


b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Rosemay,

Yes, "Snoopy" was carrying on how he wanted to write a Hub...So I said fine, and still wound up typing away on my Mac...He doesn't know how. A Fun afternoon!

The real Excitement will start after we sell the House in NJ. Then it's off we go for Good! Loved your Comments.


b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi tobusiness,

And I'm "Bitching" about NJ weather today, also Cold and looking like Rain...Yes, it makes Florida look like Paradise. I'll take YOU along in Spirit, girlfriend. Thanks for your Comments and Wishes of Luck.

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi ImKarn,

"Snoopy" will LOVE the "Mah-velous" Comment. Sorry, if I made you cry, it's that time of year of my Niece's passing...but I didn't want to keep it Sad.

Yes, I think Snoopy has it made, in his Rocking Chair, just taking it all in.

We are going to N. Palm Beach...Snoopy's suggestion. And I once had a Book, that I bought... "I am Blind, and my Dog can't See"...Sort of sounds like us! I'm so Glad you Enjoyed and I LOVED your Comments.


b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Jools,

He wanted 2 pictures...He's so Vain. Very Clever Comments, made me Smile and Snoopy had a Laugh too...I think he was Laughing, hard to tell with that closed mouth of his.

Hi Frank,

I relayed your Thoughts to Snoopy...He said Thanks, and you can send me a Juicy Bone as well! Kinda of a Nervy Dog!

MizBejabbers,

Well Pending Move...But it will happen hopefully NEXT Spring. Your Comments are So FUNNY, now I'm Laughing...Thanks for Sharing...Yeah, try the Washing Machine...Snoopy says, put the CAT in there too!

Now that's got to be the most unique, clever and cute, moving announcement I've ever seen!

I think the reading glasses give Snoopy a touch of maturity, but he looks more cuddly without them.

Voted up across the board.

Hub Hugs,

Everyone has said that they would like to be a fly on the wall. Sounds like snoopy has no need of such a wish. I am delighted that he is happy with the move and I am excited for all of you. Perhaps there is a Lucy in the neighborhood; I know lemonade is very popular in Fl. A fun read and it is nice to be kept up to date with the saga of b. and lover man!

Snoopy is so intelligent. I bet he could write a book..HaHa. I like him with or without glasses, he's cute. All kidding aside, I have a doggie that i love dearly. He sings, ' Singing in the rain . and taps his foot. I've had him for many years. Loved your little story..Cheers...

b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Ruby,

He is...Hopefully he won't write a book, because I'd have to be his "Typist". Well, wait till I tell Snoopy about your Dog, Singing and Tapping his foot...On second thought...Snoopy has a LOUSY singing voice...so maybe Not. So Glad you Enjoyed.


b. Malin profile image

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Alicia,

Snoopy says "Thank You". He will let Everyone know what he thinks of his new "Digs", after he's been there awhile. He needs to "Smell" the whole Experience first hand! Thanks for your Fun Comments.

b. Malin, Now this is how to tell a tail! Glasses yes. Thank you for sharing Snoopy with your readers, there is something so endearing about his love for his Mistress and her family. It sounds as though the entire entourage is ricocheting from coast to coast to coast (Ok I have to admit I have read (and enjoyed) a few previous Hubs). Those window views are fantastic. Regards, snakeslane

Ohhhhhh, Snoopy - I've been in love with you for years! There's so much to love about you. You're a fantastic writer to begin with. You have great patience for putting up with moving and adjusting to the spare room. (I will be doing the same, come spring when I will move back to California with my daughter.)

And oh, Snoop, you are so sexy! You are one "hot dog."

Keep the glasses - they make you look like Johnny Depp - pant, pant.

Be patient with b.malin and loverman. Don't forget, there will be a will one day:)

If I make it to Florida, I will drop by and give you my special belly rub. Just for you. sweetie.

Oh - in case you want to reach me sometime, I'm vocalcoach. And you're just so dog-gone awesome! x0x0x0

Hi Snoopy, I am so glad you got an opportunity to write your own hub. You certainly have a wonderful story to tell. It really made me paws (see I can be witty too) to think about all you and B. have been through. I am sure this next chapter will bring lots of joy and wonderful things for all of you. Maybe you will even get your own Hub Pages account so we can hear more about your ruff and interesting adventures. Make sure to use plenty of suntan lotion, to protect your pale white coloring. Good luck to all of you and thanks for the laughs.

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Vocalcoach, Your Comments were such a Joy to read. Snoopy was Thrilled to hear them, and is now walking around with a Sexy trot, with his glasses on!

Your "Will Comment" made Lover Man and I Laugh! And if you ever get to Florida, PLEASE Visit. Interesting Move for you to California, sounds like a Good, Positive Choice. Hope it brings you Happiness, my Friend. LOL.

b. Malin 4 years ago Author

Hi Toknowinfo, Snoopy says "Thank You". I'm sure he is planing many more Chapters in his mind. But a Hub Page Account...I don't even have one, I just write...Why he'd be Impossible to live with!

That was so nice of you to Suggest he Pack his "Suntan Lotion"...actually, I think he's already taken mine! I'll let him know you Enjoyed his Hub Contribution. Loved all your Comments.
