Chapter two of my twip to New Hamster

I woked up and didn't know where I was at first..everything was diffewent, I jumped off our bed, and wandewed into our own sitting woom to take a look awound, then I wemembewed we were in Gwover Clevelands old summer house(my fwiend Cairo, pointed out to me that us young pups have no idea who that was...well he was the pwesident of the United States fwom 1885-1889, and again in 1893-1897..I guess they musta liked him,not like somebody there now who I won't mention heheheh...his nickname was Uncle Jumbo, and I saw a picture of him , and they weren't kidding)...anyway after I wiped the sneep fwom my eyes, I was weady for my fiwst day of New Hamstering...I have to tell you about the fouwth of July in a later installment of my adventuwous twip....smoochie kisses to all..Asta
Auntie Kawen is helping me decide on which toy to start the day with...I picked my tewwific gween wubber cat that I was sent by my fwiends Nanook and Pooka...boy did it make the weal cats mad, heheheheh, it bounces and is squeeckie, and I still haven't been able to destwoy it, now that's what I call a gweat tewwier toy..thanks again guys
After bweakfast my Mommy lectuwed me on pwoper behavior when you're a guest at someone's house....she said later, that I made her vewy pwoud, I was such a vewy good little tewwier
My auntie Kawen is a pwetty good thwower, and i was tied to a loooong cowd, cause there were no fences, and fow some weason I'm not to be twusted in an unfenced big pwopewty..something about woads, and coyotes, and beaws, etc.....it didn't stop me fwom wunning like a maniac and playing till I was pooped
Mommi didn't fall in..the water was sooo cleaw you could see the bottom, but no fishies, and no hamsters
There were nice shady woods to walk in..that's my tall Daddy,heheheh
This was a nice shady porch to sit on after you got hot wunning in the sun
We flewed a kite,notice Dady bought one in my color

Mommi got me a super cwunchy yummy cookie to snack on in between wunning awound the fwont yawd..mmmmm,mmmmm,good

Thanks for the PJ shot, you are utterly adorable and at your charmingest in those things. MWAH!

You had such a GREAT TIME at Grover's house? (BTW, did he do a stint on Sesame Street after being president? Is he blue and fuzzy? Or, am I getting him mixed up with someone else?)

You should be a tour guide, I was totally captivated by your travelogue. Wish I could have been there with you - we could have run like maniacs together! (*Sigh* Someday!)

Your mommi and daddy are the best, and Aunty Karen ain't bad either. It looks like they planned the entire weekend around you (as it should have been).

Goober love & kisses,

Gwyn Valentine said...

Hi Asta,
OH it is sooooooo pretty there!!!!Look at the beautiful fields and scenery!

Boo Casanova said...

oh asta, i wonder what your mom told you to make you so good girl. u know, even tho no fences around the yard, i can see there's some bushes blocking you from running away, if i were them, i would totally trust you but not the coyotes tho!

wet wet licks


Finnegan said...

I'm glad you had such a great time! I can't believe there are no hamsters in New Hamster. That's just silly! Next time you should visit my mommy's home state: Vermont!


Gus said...

looks beautiful...and what a neat place you had. I can't wait to find out whether you found any new hamsters

Nessa Happens said...

I"m so glad you like the green kitty Asta! And I'm glad you haven't destroyed it yet!



Joe Stains said...

I sure wish I could visit that place someday it looks real nice. I am not to be trusted without fences either because I would probably run until I got to california or something!

Asta! You look very cute in your pajamas. You make the Triple Bs want to have a slumber party with you! And sleeping in Grover Cleveland's house - that is very very cool. You are one lucky dog. That makes you kind of famous, in a terrier kind of way!

Cairo The Boxer said...

Wow you guys had a great time! Thanks for the history lesson :) I wish you guys could come out to California sometime so we could meet :)

Ruby Bleu said...

Hi Asta...
What a bootiful place to visit. What great friends to invite you up there! So...was it cold? I mean you in your jammies, dad in his sweatshirt and mom in her scarf? Thought it was July and not January. It certainly is NOT January here...it's soooo hoooooottttt!!!

Oh I can't wait until tomorrow to see the rest!!!

Lots of Licks, Ruby
