This was an amazing pawty!!!! I still can't believe how many of you showed up..fwom faw and neaw! Our Oscar even sat on a cloud fwom ovew the wainbow Bwidge and smiled on all of us!
You all looked so pawsome in youw outfits,although by the time this pictoowe was taken,many of us had lost ouw clotheses in the heat of play..and boy did we evew play!!
Thewe was westliing and chasing,and bitey face and sniff the butt..and of couwse we all dwank and had twemendous amount of eatables! As you can see thewe awe a few wib bones left,but i think pwobably Wally and Ethel awe taking them home in hooman bags...Ruby got a "horsey wide fwom Wally ,who is an awfully good spowt.

The fouw Bs wewe excellent hosts,and had gweat cowboy hats made by Butchy and Snicker's Mama..speaking of Butchy and Snickers..did you believe those amazing outfits???Snickers was fighting off the boyz in that saloon giwl dwess with the fishnet stockings..WOW she was smokin'!
and of couwse Gussie wouldn't leave hew side( I did get a birfday dance fwom him though)
His Sissy Teka stowed away in his caw and was chasing hew beloved Doofus all ovew the place. Gussie's hat came off almost immediately..he has such a gowgeous head, why hide it?

Agatha and Archie bought pwesents and champagne and wewe supew well behaved,but wewe seen whispewing in the cownew..I don't know what they wewe planning.

Boo and Simba, came with a bunch of howses,who got scawed off by all the wild pups,hehehe..those two guys awe glued at the hip..they don't even have time fow the giwlies..what 's up with that?

GirlGirl came with hew twusty steed,as did Amber,who is quite the howsepuppy,Lorenza was dwessed to the nines as usual in one of hew gwama's cweations!

Fee brought me a cake all the way fwom acwoss the wowld..and did hew amazing dance moves to dazzle the cwowd.

Bella,and Snowball,HuskeeBoy,and Precious all danced up a stowm and gossiped about home

My Thin Twin fwom Down Undew,Asta la Vista came in hew Aussie cowboy hat, and Bussie spent an inowdinate amount of time with hew..

Jackson, came wepwesenting the Native Amewican Injuns in ouw wild wild west, and who better! he's so dignified(when he's not bawking his little head off and chasing off the many giwl pups who awe vying fow his attention...he had to take the blanket off to dance with me,and let me tell you he suwe knows how to dance! I was soo happy he made the twip despite the distance!
Even Opy ,the Gwuff puppy came by to bawk me a happy birfday..thank you ,you sweetie..you have nevew fooled me with youw "gwuffness".

Maggie and Mitch,my deaw fwiends came and we weminisced about ouw summer fun..

Jake of Flowida and his sidekick Dusty(akaJust Harry) had the most enouwmous authentic texas cowboy hats evew..they kept falling off in all the excitement!

My Sweet Fwiend Finnegan came and played with all of us,and then took a west in the field and enjoyed the munchies and the fwiends who all came to talk to him..boy is he tall!!! good thing he decided to lie down..I couldnt even see his head when he was standing..can you imagine what GG thought???

Jainie the Painie came,but was so shy,and just fell asleep in the gwass..I hope she wasn't scawed!

Momo looked adowable in hew Moo cow outfit..and
Scwuffy and Lacie wewe also dwessed as cutie cows! Appeawantly ,Scruffy was in chawge of designing their outfits and ,um he's quite litewal in his intewpwetation of cow-boy,and cow-giwl,heheh..I loved the way they looked..I might bowwow theiw outfits fow holloween.

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Wow Asta, that was some pawty! Is your head still throbbing? I'm still feeling a little ruff, what with the jet lag and all. Maybe I should try some hair of the dog? Hehehehe! J x

Sir Chance-Lot said...

Ohh ahh..I feel the same way you do today ..hehe. What a PARTY!!!!
My cowboy down under*hat is still sitting on my head, cause I cant seem to get it off...I think that Stanley got a bit worried I would get all your attention(cause lets face it I am after all very handsome), and after that last matini, I think he super glued my hat to my forehead!!!? Well thats what Ruby said anyway...LOL.
Thank you again for the BEST time ever, and for the big post about it...that must have been very tiring to write all that stuff!

We ALL love you to pieces
Golden Hugs
p.s. I planted a couple of bacon seeds outside your house when I left this morning..so keep an eye out for "sprouting bacon trees on your street!!!

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Asta, Haven't you heard? The best remedy for a hang over is a little hair of the dog. The trick is to figure out which dog. I think we'll all have to come back for another party!

Putter said...

Joe Stains said...

what a fabulous party, Mom will post up some pics later of me and Cowboy pig recovering!!

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

Oh Asta...I felt like I was reading the "Fanfare" section of the Pittsburgh paper where they list famous pawties and what everybody was wearing!! You'd make a great entertainment editor!!!!! "Oh, What A Nite!!!" Ya know, I never really liked stripping before...ya know, at the groomers...this was much different...that old cow hide was too darn hot anyway!!! Scruffy and Koobie had a fab time. He enlightened her on her blog what happened at the pawty. Scruffy ate buckets of your mom's smooshie tatos mixed with peanut butter...mmm...delish...and washed them down with that yummy funny flavored jello in the huge bowls. He looks really tired today!!

Rest up, Asta....FAB PAWTY!!!!!


Agatha and Archie said...

Well what can we say..what a hostess,what a party(from the bits we can remember) and the food....DIVINE!!!!!! You know Archie and his hot dogs(and his daiquiris...I told him not to have that last one!!! ) The hostess with the mostess.....but the best part was that we were all together)I think) How about Koobie on tha cake!!! LvoeA+A

Sounds like you guys know how to party! Maybe Mom will let me go next time -- she's been down with a bad cold and needed me to hold her hand and pass her Kleenexes...
No fun!

Emily and Ike said...

Aren't you a little young to be getting drunk on dogtinis?
Happy Birthday Asta!!!!

Koobuss said...

Thank you, Kousin Asta, for showing us such a wonderful time, I think. I am so embarrassed about what happened to me and I apologize. Next time I will behave better (or not).

Anyway, Happy Birthday, my dear sweet kousin.

I see that you had to west up, too. Looks like you had the same headache I did. Do you think it runs in the family?

Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

love ur dot dot dress

Stanley said...


WooHoo! That was some pawty! I could have used that ice pack earlier today.

You look so sweet in your orange polka dot dressie, that it's hard to imagine that you're nursing a little headache! I hear if you eat some of your own hair it makes it a little better. Who knew?

Take care of yourself & get some good sleep, girl! If you threw pawties for a living you'd be one rich pupgirl!

Goober love & smooches,

Amber-Mae said...

Oh My Dog! Asta! I must have had such a good time at your Pawty, I cannot remember a thing!

But as they used to say about the 1960s, if you can remember the 60s then you were not there!

So your Pawty must have been the bestest! My place in your pawty photo proves I was there! I am hononoured.
