As Long as We'we Hewe

Ma chere ami ,Faya has not been feeling well lately, and now she found out she might have hip dysplasia.....I feel just tewwible, so I decided while Jackson was napping, I would wun ovew to Switzewland and visit hew to at least cheew her up...
we walked in the snow, and talked, we couldn't wun cause it huwt her...aftewwawds,
befowe I had to leave, we had some raclette, ..she suwe is bootiful, and such a wondewful hostess! I hope she gets bettew soon!
aftew Faya, I still had a little time, so I hopped on my Vespa(it can weally move!) and went to visit a few mowe fwiends.
Marvin lives in bootiful Scotland and we had a gweat time..
he showed me some of the lovely sites awound whewe he likes to wun..
I left aftew a snack of scones and tea, yum...

from Scotland I went to Nowway to visit my new fwiends Bajas, and Coco the puggies, and Nimbus the whippet..we wan thwough some bootiful woods till we were way too tiwed, and I had to leave to get back to England..
I'm planining on coming back sometime to all these places..they wewe amazing ,and my fwiends couldn't have been nicew evewywhew I went

Back in England, I couldn't wesist a tiny visit to Harry and baby Cassidy's house.

They showed me theiw back yawd..we had a tewwific time....I made the pewipheral inspection with Harry, and then played biteyface with Cassidy..what a sweet pair they awe!
I stopped by to have a few wowds with my sweet Oscar while I was in the gawden..he has such a lovely place thewe....he is so happy that his pawents have a house full of joy again!

Aftew all the wunning awound,
I wan back to Jackson's house to check on him..he is westing comfowtably..
Lacie and Dunstan have been insepewable...they'we having quite a time!
while at home I heawd that thewe is a pokew pawty at Scruffy's and he's even letting giwls in.., but we can't get home in time, so we'll have to miss it..it's OK, cause I'm still not comfowtable leaving my Jax...have a gweat time evewyone!

Glad that you are having a good time in Europe and that you are there for Jackson. I hope Lacie doesn't get too attached to Dunstan. Dewey will be heartbroken.

Oh Asta, you are such a good friend and a great nurse. Opus has been sick, if he isn't feeling better soon do you think you could stop by and help me nurse him back to health?

Kisses to your other friends under the weather and hope they are back on their paws soon.

Merci Asta ! Tu es la meilleure infirmière au monde. J'ai adoré notre promenade et .... je ne pensais pas qu'un petit chien comme toi puisse manger autant de raclette ! Impressionant ton estomac !
Bisous, Faya

Harry said...

Thank you so much for stopping by Asta! It was terrific to invite you to our house for a cup of tea and a cucumber sandwich. I'm also ever so grateful that you let Cassidy pull your beard for a while so I could have a rest!

Toodle pip,
Harry x

Patience-please said...

Wow ASTA! We've known Nimbus for years and never have got to meet him in realdog.. We wish we could have gone with you.
We will try to get pictures of our tails for you, but they go at whippet speed so they will probably be blurs.
The servant managed to post you award to us! Thanks again!

Sophie Brador said...

Astalulu, You are one amazing doggie taking care of everyone and playing the socialite besides. Sad news about FAya. I know how that feels. I have a form of dysplasia in my shoulders and it really hurts. Maybe you can come nurse me too! I promise to take you to the best eateries in Montreal while you're here.


the many Bs said...

HI Asta, you are a busy travelling girl. we are going to go visit Faya too. we hope that sometime you will come to visit us. we can play with you in the back yard. you will like romping in the mud with us and you can even dig in our holes or make a new one if you want. we will show you the sights, like the wonderful dog park and our favorite dog store where mom takes us to shop.


Daisy said...

Oh Asta, you are a regular Florence Nightingale zipping around on your little Vespa and visiting your friends!

You are quite the world traveler, I am jealous that you got to meet all of our wonderful friends, but I am happy for you! Your doggy pawsport must have a lot of cool stamps in it now!

Your vespa must be real tired!

I am so glad you enjoyed our booootiful run together over my countryside in Scotland, and the tea and scones!

I loved having you visit!

Take care sweet Asta and have a grand weekend!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta
Looks like you had great time there in Europe visiting all those friends! Sure you were very nice taking care of them!
Thanks for sharing all those pictures!
Have a good night

Kirby said...

WOW Asta! You have been quite busy. Your passport must be almost full of stamps. It is so sweet of you to 'tour' Europe visiting all of your blogging pals. Hopefully your excellent nursing skills helped out Jackson and Faya. I know if I was ill I would love to have you taking care of me.

Your pal,

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni!

You really ARE an amazing Florence Nightenwire! So many pups are going to be feeling better and have smiles on their faces because you took the time to go by and see them.

Thank you especially, for going to the aid of my surrogate sissy, Faya. I am sooo bummed about her hips, but am glad that you two are so tight!

I too loved the booty photo of you, Cassidy and Harry! I'm sure Katy & Martin enjoyed your visit as much as the pups did.

Can't wait for your visit to GooberStan someday. Be sure to take care of yourself, sweetpea.

Goober love & smooches (for you, Jax, Asta Oz, and Lacie & Dunstan),
Stanley boy
