I had a vewy exciting day yestewday..my pawents and I dwove to LI to hang some of Mommi's paintings in a summer bawn show..thewe awe going to be 6 ow 7 awtists pawticipating..and all the awt will be in two bawns..it will be open ovew the holiday weekend and Labow day..the whole pwopewty is fenced in so I was allowed totally off leash..this has NEVER happened befowe...WOW I wan and gawdened and played with Stella who lives thewe ,but wouldn't pose fow photos

It was a hooge bootiful gawden

I went into the bawn with my pawents to help hang the paintings..hewe awe some of the paintings Mommi put up.......aftewawds I got to go explowe some mowe, but I've never been in such a big place off leash,and it took me a while to sepewate fwom Mommi and get bwave

All the paintings awe in the bawn xcept fow the next one which is at the entwance

After hanging the paintings we were vewy hot,and the nice hoomans who owned the place said why don't you take a swim?..so Mommi wan and jumped in the pool
I was stawing at my Mommi so hawd while she was swimming ,that all of a sudden I fell in...it was supew embawwasing, luckily only my Mommi saw,and we swam and laughed about it
A little west and dwying off in the sun aftew all the wunning awound,and the pool twauma
It's the end of a vewy fun day...so it's back to the caw and the long dwive home..as you can see I'm weawing Stanley's banana awound my neck..it gives smoochie by wemote

Love the paintings Asta, but how come there's none of you? Looks like you had a fun time running around. Hope you have a great weekend! Jx

Joe Stains said...

how exciting that you got to go off leash. I like being off leash at the dog park but always have to keep my humans in view.

those paintings are real nice, Mom thinks having a barn art show sounds pretty cool.

Oscar's mummy and daddy said...

Lots of beautiful paintings there. Your mum is a fantastic artist.

Looks like you had a blast running around the garden (apart from the stoopid pool!).

Stanley said...

Asta Pup!!!

You looked so out home out in that garden, and you had a buddy to run around with too! WooHoo! (Too bad she didn't want her photo taken).

I'm totally picturing you and your mama in the pool. I still can't imagine how you fell in silly.

The paintings are gorgeous and look very cool in the barn. (Does your mommi have any that she's done of you yet?)

Have fun tomorrow! If you're one of the official greeters for the show, it will be a smashing success!

Goober love (by remote),
Stanley Boy

Gus said...

Whee...looks like you had a great great time! And the paintings are stunning against the rough barn wood. Once you got over the shock, I am sure that you enjoyed your swim. And of course, your momi did too! We hope the weekend is very successful!

Oh Asta...you fell in the pool? Did the chlorine do any damage to your beeyuutiful coat?? Make sure you rinse well so you don't turn that icky chlorine green!!! What fun you had in the off leash park and helping your mum hang those wonderful paintings!! I hope you got your buuutee sleep!!! Do you have any hints on getting your black lipstick on straight...lip liner??? My mom doesn't think I'm old enough for makeup, but I'm winning this battle.

Hi, Asta.
We like your mom's paintings! They are great!
How was to be off leash there?? I suppose it was great! I'd love to do that but, until now I haven't had the chance!
Have a good night

Ah Boy said...

Me and my mum love the painting, Asta. They are so beautiful. And isn't that great to be off leash? Can run around freely :)

Have a nice weekend :)

Ruby Bleu said...

Wow Asta...what fun!!! And you went swimming...did you like it? Well, you didn't actually go swimming, but at least you got in the water!

It must have been a real treat to be off leash like that...having all that room to roam about. So exciting!!! I'm just a little jelly!!

All your Mom's paints are so bootiful! My Mom especially likes the cityscapes!!!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Lots of Licks, Ruby

leah said...

art show in a barn? very cool! those paintings are amazing. my favorites are the skylines (the orange and the blue one with the 'rental' thing on it). and the orange lady is very intriguing. but they're all brilliant. i'm serious -- i REALLY love your mom's work!

glad you survived that scary pool. and hooray for no-leash total-outdoor-freedom!

fee said...

what a huge compound! it must be such fun to be able to roam around off leash! did you find something in the bushes in front of the house? did you leave pee-mail for their next visitor? i wish i was there too!

have a nice weekend, asta!

You must be so proud of your Mummy seeing her paintings hanging in the barn. The pool looks like a great place to cool off.

Unknown said...

Oh Asta,

You look positively adorable in your smoochie scarf...That is how I always think of you!

You mom is really talented. My mom wishes she could come check out that barn exhibit!

I won't tell anyone you fell in. I have never been in a real pool before...I don't know if I would like it!!!!

Booty scratches and wet kisses,


Rudy said...

Your mom's pretty talented -- my grandmom Miz Mary used to paint a lot a long time ago. I'm so jealous you got to run around in that huge place! So many interesting places to sniff.. and that pool! I love water!


ToFFee said...

Hi Asta!

I would have jumped to the pool myself too.

Duke said...

Your mom's paintings are just beautiful Asta! And how lucky you are to be off-leash!
We're home from Nantucket. Our vacation was such fun but it's so nice to be home!

Love ya lots,

Sir Chance-Lot said...

~Good Morning Asta~
What a great time you had yesterday~Mamma and I laughed a little at the story about you falling into the pool...we can sort of picture it in our minds..hehe. That happened to me several times too when I was a baby. Your mamma's paintings are fantastic, and awe inspiring. Will there be lots of people looking at them?
Oh and I just love the remote kissing banana~I am begging mamma for one too!!

Hiya Asta

Your mommy's paintings are awesome. Did she get to sell all of it?

I bet it was a gweat weekend fow you. I love being off-leash too. The gawden was so bootiful. Did you manage to do any gawdening?

Thanks for your healing smoochies. I'm feeling much better already. But I still have to finish some stinky meds.

Hope you'll have lotsa fun in the coming week!
