Us Pampered Pups

Listen Everydoggie..I have been doing some sewious thinking...i had aweady gone to bed, but i've been tossing and tuwning, not being able to sneep cause I'm so upset...tell me what you think?

I don't want to be a pawty pooper..most especially cause it's my sweet cousin Snickers' birfday,but here's what I thought..

I know how much fun it is to get and give pwezzies, but I feel that thewe's something wong with the wowld where I have soo much(love and toys, and fwiends) and then I wead about all the doggies who are being abused and get nothing....tonight I went to see what my fwiends Lita and Twish The Airechicks were up to..and what I wead on their site about Andy and some other doggie bwoke my heawt.

Can't we all do something???

I was thinking that maybe if we took the money fwom possible new pwezzies we get or give each other and instead gave it to wescue gwoups we could maybe help some of these doggies who have never known the love we get evewy day...it's maybe a stoopid idea, and I cewtainly enjoy my gifts always, and I don't want to wuin anydoggie's fun, but let's at least think about it pweez.....pweez...I know that none of us can change the howwible things in the wowld, but maybe we could do a little bit..

smoochie kisses and sweet dweams to all of you
your fwiend

Hello Asta, Tu sais Véronique aime faire des cadeaux mais ici en Suisse elle est marraine de 2 chiens dans un refuge pour vieux chiens abandonnés alors elle fait des cadeaux sans remords.
Je crois que tous les propriétaire d'animaux font quelque chose à leur manière, j'espère...
Gros bisous, Faya

Sweet Asta Girl!

I think you are a very wise pupcake. My girl and I just came from Trish & Lita's post too, and I am still comforting her (she cries when she's angry). Andy and lot of other pups out there need our help.

I already have pressies for you and a few other friends bought and slimed by yours truly (so I can't really take them back), but I'm going to put my head together with my girl and see what ideas we come up with for how to be of more help to pups in need.

Hopefully, you're already asleep and will read this when you wake up Sunday morning. You have such a BIG HEART, my sweetpea. That can be a double-edged sword. You love much, but when your heart is heavy it is VERY heavy.

I think we can change the world together with our pup friends. You're quite the revolutionary, girl.

Sneep tight!

Love and kisses from your Goober Boy,

now we can conquer the woild!

that's a fantabulous idea.. I have to tell my pawrents that.

we have also lots of case like that here.. poor doggies are abandoned and you can imagine how scroching hot it is these days.


Kien said...

Asta.. what a lovely idea.. my mommy n i had thought that too earlier.. and we already started to make our own greeting card instead of buying them.. and we are going to cut down the pressie send to others.. i think a greeting card make from our own tells it all.. rest the money we will donate it to other doggies n pups that really needs our help instead..

At least there's something we can do for them..

We feel the same way Asta! The story about Andy broke my mom's heart and she couldn't get into paypal fast enough. I wish we could say that we feel so much better now but we don't! We feel just awful for that poor young boy. He doesn't deserve all these problems.

Love ya lots,

Oscar's mummy and daddy said...

I think you have a good idea there Asta. The present swaps here can be a little unfair to, as now there are so many doggy bloggers, we can't really all buy each other presents, and some pups get left out. Maybe we could have a secret Santa type idea so one doggy buys a present for another, and donations are made to a shelter of their choice. I'll put my thinking cap on.

Send a pawsonalized card with the note of which rescue group you donated to in their honor.

I finally figured out how to see you eating ice cream Asta! Gosh but it sure took mom long enough! DUH! You're such a neat eater! Nothing like Stanley! He's such a boy!hehehehe

Love ya lots,

Asta, you are such a smart doggy. we think that's a wonderful idea. us DWB have so much love and prezzies and treats and some doggys have nothing. it's very sad. our mom gets watery eyes when she thinks about those other homeless doggys. we like the idea of making a donation to a homeless shelter in honor of some happy doggy's barkday and then sending that birthday day a special card. you're such a thoughtful doggy. we lick you a lot, Asta.

I think thats pawesome~I think I am going to tell my mamma to donate part of the money from cafe pressie store to rescue group!!!
I am IN!!!

Sir Chance-Lot said...

Come see yourself in the pressie store, under wire (fox?) terriers

Gus said...

We think it is a great idea! More later, we are trying to catch up!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
That is a great idea. We are so lucky having more than we need, a lovely home, food, treats and our people who love us!
Lets do something for those who don't have anything!
Have a good night

Anonymous said...

that is such a sweet thought asta. i have never thought about it this way before, about turning possible pressies into money for lost pups. but i will keep that in mind.


Nugget said...

I think you have a super idea Asta! Mum has donated to our local shelter and will continue.

Lots of Licks,
Nugget, Stewy & Ozzy too!

Sweet lil' Asta, you are so wise despite being so young. I'm with you, this sounds terrific. It doesn't matter if we can only do so much. Every lil' thoughts counts. =)


Scrappy and Pebbles said...

That is a wonderful idea. Mom is already part of a group who knits warm sweaters for shelters. So, anything that helps our less fortunate 4 legged friends is a good idea.

asta I think that is a most wonderful idea!

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Asta, that is such a nice idea. I'm sure many of the not so fortunate friends will benefit from it

Hi Asta,
You are such a sweet and wise lil' pup...That's a really good idea you have and many of our not so fortunate furry pals can benefit from it.

Finnegan said...

Mommy thinks that is a great idea! We have written about some of the organizations we feel are in need of attention on the blog. I think it would be nice to set aside one week where everyone agrees to make whatever size donation they can.

Hurray Asta and Family!


coco said...

asta, you have the most loving and gentle heart. i agree with you completely. thanks for leading the way - i will follow with my little tail wagging like crazy!!

poochie smoochies, coco

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Asta, Great idea!
Sophie just donated a whole CA $100 bucks, which is almost very nearly the exact same amount as US $100, to an independent animal shelter here.

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, what a sweet idea. Pawsonally, I feel more comfortable sending my dog blogging pals greetings cards or e-cards and making a donation to my favourite dog charity rather than sending gifts. Here in the UK I already sponsor a dog called Harry who lives at a dog shelter and cannot be rehomed. See here to read about him! http://www.dogstrust.org.uk/sponsor_a_dog/dog_detail/?dog=106347&returnURL=/sponsor_a_dog/

Hey Asta...
I think you are such a smarty girl. I agree with you and me and my Mom (actually my Mom) are going to do a regular donation each month to our Wonder Dog friends - in your honor since it is such a brilliant idea. You are an inspiration. I told my Mom I don't need so many snackies or prezzies...but every now and than I'm gonna send out something special to my blogging friends. I hope that is ok.

Lots of Licks, Ruby

Putter said...

We feel the same way here Asta -- Poor Andy ...:( You are a sweetest girl with greatest ideas :) Talk to you soonest!

Your Friend,

Putter ...:)

What a great idea, Asta. I know some rescue dogs. Their stories make you want to cry. I don't need any more toys. My family does what they can to help out.
