BarnArt Opening Day

Satuwday we dwove out to Long Island again fow the opening of the Bawn Show that Mommi was pawticipating in..I had to weally watch the woad, it''s along twip and a lot of hoomans were going out to the Hamptons and other ritzy places.We stopped on the way to look at a bunch of anti-Q places
We found a nice place to have lunch, called the Old Mill..I had to check out the locals befowe we sat down..they were not tooo fwiendly ..snap,snap,snapMommi and auntie Kawen stawred talking to the owners of the westauwant,and intwoducing me to their doggie,whos sister plays with me in NYC as it tuwns out...smalll wowld hehehe
I got to have some fwench fwies, while I waited fow my shawe of the Lobstew woll
This was the little hawbow that we saw fwom the westauwant..thewe were all kind of intewesting biwds..hewons, ospwey, ducks, and the nasty swans who wanted to eat me up
After lunch we finally awwived at the place where the Bawn Show was being held..

This was Mommi stawting to talk to some hoomans who came to the show(Mommi's in the white blouse)I was weady to gweet the public and pewfowm my dooties as official schmoozer...isn't it the most bootiful day????

After all the guests left, we were able to close the gate, and I was allowed to wun fwee again...I wan and wan and then my Mommi played fetch with me..it doesn't get any better than this!!

The nice hoomans who own the place invited us fow dinner aftew the show in the gawden..just look at that, I didn't need to be asked twice

Mommi had to twick me with atweat, to get me to come put my leash back on..I was having toooo much fun wunning fwee

I said goodbye to Stella and Desi who live there, and thanked them fow their hospitality

It was a vewy long day...I got weally tiwed

PreciOus said...

Hi Asta! You play fetch really well! I would just grab the ball and run elsewhere.


Goofy said...

Same as Precious, grabbing the ball and run away from being caught!!!!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Your mommy's work is beautiful... I am glad she managed to sell 2 of her work!
Oh wow. those swans don't look friendly to me.. Stay away from them Asta!!

Duke said...

Asta Girl!

I bet your schmoozing and greeting skills came in very handy for all of the artists! You'll probably have other offers for being able to draw so many hoomans into the show. (What do you charge for your services?)

Now that you have tasted of wild running and the freedom of being off-lead, it's hard to go back. I know. If I had it *my* way I'd never be on a leash. I hope you get many more opportunites to play fetch with your mommi and run like the wind!!

Goober love,

Bella said...

wow that` looks like a fantastic day outing - you are so lucky Asta - but you deserve it !!
Congratulations to your mama too on selling some paintings, she is very talented.

Hi Asta
You lucky dog you...hehe..Its so great that your mamma and pappa can just get in the car and drive a little bit, and be by the shore.We can do the same...oh the swimming place is where my mamma lived when she first came to america "alifetimeago" not sure what that means...anyway its a place called westport,ct. She lived right on the beach there until a few years ago, and then she moved to a place called sandy hook, that is just 20 minutes away from westport, so she takes me to her old house a lot to swim, cause some of her friends still lives there:O))
The water you see, is called Long Island sound...not far from maybe where you were except across the bay.
We are trying to figure out what we are going to do for fun today...except from a lot of eating..heheh. I guess thats how people celebrate laboring weekends..they just eat ALOT!
Now don't get me wrong..I'm ALL for that part, but there has to be some water,balls,swimming and running involved too!
Enjoy the beautiful day Beautiful Asta!!

Scruffy, Lacie and Stanley's Place said...

Oh Asta...the video of you fetching the tennis ball...well, let's just say you and Scuffy are DEFINITELY related. Oh my Dog...it coulda been him; it was amazing. Why do you Wires do all of that work and chase balls, frisbees and such? Part retriever I guess. I suppose when my puppy metabolism slows down, I may have to think about exercising more seriously. Being rather er...short, Scruffy says if I don't get off my Lakie duff, I'm gonna look dumpy. But not to worry till my puppy days are ended! Congrats to your mommy!!! Her paintings are fabulous! Perhaps ya shoulda taken a swan home and cooked it for dinner!!!!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
You sure had a very fun and tiring day!! with the trip and all the activities there!
Tell your mom congratulations on sellin those paintings! She is great!
Have a nice day

Gus said...

Asta: Can you explain "Fetch" to me. I do not understand why humans throw the ball if they eally want to keep it. So I don't do "fetch"! But maybe if you explain it to me, I will try it.

Congrats to momi for selling two paintings. Maybe more will sell over the weekend and you can celebrate with a nice trip to Azrizona.

happy labrador day.

Hey Asta, Running free and chasing the tennis ball is the best in life. Wheeee..... It just doesn't get any better, except when you are all done then you can lay on a comfy couch and snooze. You had a wonderful wonderful fun time. And YaY to you mommy for selling two of her beautiful paintings! Someday our mommy wants to buy one too. She thinks your mommy is the bestest painter of doggies that she has ever ever seen!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta! Sounds like a great weekend. So glad to hear your Mum sold 2 paintings. It's great being off leash, isn't it? I do it often except that I'm not allowed to run any more so that means its not QUITE as much fun as it was before. J x

Frasier said...

Oh Asta,
I wish you could have put up your paintings!
You must be one tired lil pup!!After all that running!

Simba and Jazzi said...

Tu féliciteras ta maman ! Tu vis vraiment dans un magnifique pays... et les cygnes chez nous sont tous aussi snobs ! Bisous, Faya

Koobuss said...

So glad your mom sold two paintings. That's great! I wish I could have been there. Looks like a super place. What a good time you had, Asta!

Tell me, Asta, did you ever get any of that lobster roll, or did you have to be content with a french fry? I would have jumped up on the table and stole the lobster. Sometimes my manners are very bad. (Wink)

Koobuss Kisses,
