How to make the best of a cwummy , lousy , wainy Monday

This is what it looked like when I stood at the window this mowning. and looked outside...pouwing wain and gwey all over
and it stayed like this alllll day,
definitely not a day when I could go to play at the wun, or even go for a long walk where I always bump into some puppy fwiends to say hi to and woll awound the sidewalk....none of that was possible today..what's a puppy to do????????

You can always just cuwl up in a cozy cowner, and sleep....or...............................
wiggle awound on the floow, and gwab your wubba, and hold on tight , while wolling awound, and stawing at the ceiling..I just love chomping on my toys upside down..I don't know why........it's kind of weird , but it's my favowite self-play positionI brought my bad Cuz to my Mommi and we played together...she's no tewwier, but she twies..I have a nice long hallway so you can thfow your toys and wun after them a whole loong time

Now what can I do?????

I guess I'll join Mommi in bed..she's not feeling so gweat...I'll play with her to cheer her up
need to chew..at least I do, and it helps keep my teefs all white too

I know it's silly, I'm past getting all my pawmenent teefs, but I still love my teefing wing
I like being on the nice soft downy comfowter..I think it's kind of like being on a cloud
It all ended with my special upside down chomp on my teething wing
It wasn't such a lousy day after all....I got to be in a cosy house with my pawents who love me to bits and I got to play and snooze and eat in between...ahhhhhhh the life
hope you all had a gweat day, smoochie kisses,

Hey Asta, it was raining here all day too. I don't like going out in the garden when it's raining unless J1 or J2 come with me so that they can get wet too! Hehehehe! Hope your Mum is feeling better. J x

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi ya Asta girl...
My Momma misses the rain...gosh every time she visits you she gets homesick for NYC but she says we're not moooving :( I hope your Mom is feeling better...I know I would feel better if I were curled up next to you! Oh and we play exactly the same...when it is too hot or the weather is icky here, Mom throws my cuz down the hall too! How fun!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Hi Asta,

I do the same thing when I play with my toys. I lay on my back and chew on them. Saturday Mom & Dad went to a beach party, no doggies were invited. I was on guard duty. Sunday Mom went to the beach with her friends, no doggies allowed there either. I got to hang out with Dad.

Today Mom took me on the ferry to go see "Jack Across the Water" in Connecticut for my plucking. So far I have logged more sea time this year than either Mom or Dad. Mom, Donna and I sat out on the back of the ferry and I sucked in all that salty air. I was in seventh heaven. Mom got me a new toy because I was a good girl. Dad's gotta take some pics of my new "do". Gotta run...

Woof Woof...

Hi Asta,

Thanks for visiting. I explained why the silence in a short post a while ago.

It's been raining -- lightning and thunder -- here too It's almost OK when Mom and Dogdad are here, but this afternoon they were away and when they came home, instead of findng us snoozin' on top of the stairs, they found us right at the door waiting for them.

Stay dwy!!!

Jake and JH

Hi, Asta.
Looks like you know how to make a rainy day a big day inside your home! I like the way you play with your toys!
I hope your mom is feeling better now!
Have a good night

Hey Asta,

You had a rainy day, too. So did I, but I didn't have as much fun as you did. I told everybody about it on my blog.

Lots of Koobuss Kisses,

Fuzzy B!

I sure love watching your live-action fetch video with your mommi. She does all right (for a non-terrier).

That upside down position, I have learned from Wally, is called the Roach position (cuz you're on your back with your legs up - looking like you can't get turned back over - maybe for Wally that's really the case).

If you're on your back just to wiggle around to scratch, it's called roachin'. If you're on your back staring at the ceiling and playing with your toys... well it's called ADORABLE! I could watch you all day.

Glad you got to get onto the cloud with your mommi to make her feel better. Give her AireZen and Goober kisses from me. (Little known fact: Goober kisses have healing properties).

Hope you get more than quick potty breaks outside tomorrow.

Your goober boy,

your mommy sounds like she has a clogged nose, poor mommy.

why do you call it the bad cuz? i have the exact same one, in orange, and it annoys the peeeegs out of me when HM throws it and it bounces every which way!

you look adorable chewing upside down :) the comforter is great for doing that cos you can find a comfy spot and won't roll around too much :)


Joe Stains said...

That sounds like a great day to me! We have those teething keys too and Tanner is almost 4 and he STILL loves them. He has 2 sets and a third set brand new in the cupboard for when those get all chewed!

Nugget said...

Hi Asta,
It's been raining here in Seattle too! Rainy days are the best for snuggle naps.

Licks, Nugget & the boys

Bella said...

Hi gorgeous Asta - you look like you are making the most of a rainy day - snuggling with mummy in bed is always nice - hope your mummy feeling better.

Agatha and Archie said...

Dearest Asta, WE HAVE THE SAME HALLWAY!!!! Only what we do is chase each other around the house(because it goes in a big circle) and Archie tries out his football maneuvers on me. We were very lucky not to have rain but you looked like you had fun anyway. We agree with your last post too. PL2 went and gave donations to all kinds of places.... Love Archie + Agatha

Tadpole said...

I have those keys too! I love them! Granted, I'm only 1, but still... Fig plays with them and she's over 5 (don't tell her I told you that)!

Faya said...

Haha ... tu t'amuse en écoutant de la musique française... Patricia Kass ? Edith Piaf ?
Ici aussi il pleut alors je m'entraîne pour être championne du monde de la sieste sur canapé !
Bisous, ton amie Faya

fee said...

the rain is here too and i'm wondering if it is the same one that kept you indoors. but at least i had your cuz video and a nice warm bowl of goat's milk to keep me snug and entertained. i hope you'll get a better weather tomorrow so i'll get to watch a great outdoors movie!


Frasier said...

Hi Asta,
My mommy loves the rainy,dreary weather and she drink loads of tea and snuggles up with me and we eat and read !(She does not work!!)
Hope you mommy gets better soon,mine has a puffy cheek and cant eat which is like going to hell and beyond for her !!She also need to stop watching the food channel since it makes her drool!!!

Ferndoggle said...

Sounds like a pretty cool day to us. We haven't had much rain lately, but it's supposed to be comin'! Rain = chewies. Nuthin' wrong with that!
