Mommi's Bath

It was a nice aftewnoon, but I was concewned about my Mommi...she has been feeling vewy cwummy fow days now, and she was all shivewy...

I had and idea..you know how Hoomans awe weally weiwd and like a bath fow no weason at all, I mean they don't even have to get muddy ow slimed ow anything befowe they want to take one..well I thought a wawm bubble bath would be just the thing fow hew and then a snooze in bed with me snuggled up beside hew to keep hew wawm

We have a teenie ,tiny single bathwoom...BUT! just look at ouw bathwoom wug! it's TinTin and Milou...this is EXACTLY how Daddi and I look in the mownings..it's amazing what a gweat likeness it is..I should pwobably sue them fow stealing ouw photogwaphs.
I got the bath weady fow my sick Mommi...
You can come now Mommi, the watew is all pawfect..it even has those bubbly things

Now this looks pwomising, a toy!
How come I don't get a wubbew ducky in my bath?
Now what awe you doing mommi???you'we going to get all winkly(I mean winkliew than nowmal)
I like to tickle the Mommi's toes,hehehe
Bubbles taste intewesting,but not neawly as good as they look
OK now I'm getting concewned..you've been in thewe too long Mommi , time to come out
I think it's time to go put Mommi to bed now and tuck hew in..I make an excellent space heatew!

Asta, you are such a good nurse, even to your Mommy! I hope she appreciates your care, even though I think she might have a problem with her head if she WANTS to sit in the bathtub for that long???

Ben & Darling said...

You are such a good gal. Did you get that duckling ??

Faya said...

Prends bien soin de ta mamy et tiens-lui bien chaud dans son lit. Tu peux lui préparer un chocolat chaud avec un peu de rhum dedans c'est très bon.....
Gros bisous et embrasse bien ta mamy de notre part à tous, Faya

Stanley said...

Sweet ASta pearoni FB!

You can be my personal space heater ANYtime!

Your mommi was very brave to let you photograph her intimate moments in the bath. (They were tastefully done, by the way). She has such pretty toesies, I think I'd nibble on them too.

You give her some big juicy goober smooches from me. They should heal her right up!

Don't forget to take care of yourself too, sweetpea. You've been busy taking care of everydog else & need to make sure you don't get sick.

Goober love & extra smooches,

Amber-Mae said...

Oh, you're soooo helpful on getting your mommy's bubble bath ready. Why didn't you join your mommy? I love bubble baths. I think the bubbles are fascinating too! I hope you helped to wipe down her & dry your mommy with the hair dryer.

Love licks,

I would never mind having a bath if there was a human in there to play with. They have baths that look like way more fun.

What a crazy woman to go INTO the water like that! Of course we are cats and you know how we feel about water! Our human likes to take long, hot baths too. Just sit in the bathroom and stare at her like she is crazy (because she is)! What a nice doggy you are to take such good care of your human. We hope she is feeling better soon!

We would like to invite you on a vespa ride through Rome with us tomrrow. What do you think?

Sassy Kat said...

What a sweet thing, getting your Mom a bath. I'm not sure that I would want to do that as I really, really don't like getting wet. Be careful too when you have too many bubbles, I hear they are not good on the tummy, didn't they taste funny? I hope your mom is feeling better, I bet she was so surprised when you made her that nice bath. Wow a wonderful child are you!

Daisy said...

Asta, you are such a sweet and thoughtful girl. I am sure the bath made your mom feel much, much better. Especially when she knows it was prepared by her special girl.

Sassy Kat said...

Stopping back cause I just found out when I visited my friend Beau that he isn't feeling too well. I don't know if you know him or not but if ya could stop by and let him know ya are thinking of him that would be great. He is such a wonderdul kitty and needs us to keep him in our thought and prayers.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi Asta,
Sorry to hear that your mommy's sick.. I am sure she'll be well soon with such a good nurse taking care of her!

Gus said...

Asta: We are soooo glad that you came back from England to take care of your Mommi. My muzzer likes those bubble bath things too, and sometimes I join her. hehehe. But only at the end. Then Teka comes too, and Dad has to come and help muzzer get us out of the tubby. We have yellow duckies too, and a pink one that E.Rabbit got from muzzer. It gets kind of crowded! Best wishes and wirey kisses to Mommi, and a few for you too!


Frasier said...

Hi Asta
Mommy said she loves you even more now.She loves,loves,loves Tintin and esp Snowys expressions in the comics.She probably will trade me if you say that you love Asterix !!!

Ferndoggle said...

What a great nursemaid you are Asta! So sweet of you to take care of her when she is sick. Our bathroom is teeny too but I always lay on the rug & wait to lick Moms legs off when she gets out of the tub.


the many Bs said...

Hi Asta, we hope you made your mommy feel better with her bubble bath and your heating pad warmth. we like to give our mom heating warmth too. she likes it and so do we.


Sir Chance-Lot said...

Ohhh Jeez Asta....are you kidding now YOUR mamma is sick...did she get my mamas donkey illness?
You better tell her to go see the dogtor..mamma did, and she had a very serious donkey illness...and also she had the "mutant" cold that they talked about on the news...she is STILL coughing and not feeling a 100%

Well I hope she is out of the tub..if not she has turned into a raisin now...When I take bubble baths I bring my rubber toys in to the tub...I LOVE bubbles baths..can you believe it?

You are such a good helper too...our bathroom is so small that I can hardly fit in there..mama says you have to leave the room to to turn around..hehe.

So is she feeling better or what?

p.s. head over to the DWB~and check out how Nannok is shamelessly fagging his PHD around to win votes...hehe


See you Asta..Hope your mama feels better

Duke said...

Mom is chuckling at the rug on the bathroom floor, Asta! It's just adorable! You're such a good helper to have around! We hope your mommy feels better soon so she can eat turkey and stuffing in a couple of days!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Harry said...

Oh Asta, you are such a wonderful doggie to take such good care for your mommie.

Like you we don't understand the whole bathing thing, we use our tongue. If your mommie lived nearby us our Bubbles could wash her, he can also wash and purr at the same time. Purrs are healing they say.

Bathtime wouldn't be so bad with one of those rubber duckies! We love your bathmat.

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Astaboo, my mom's little doggies used to try to like all the bubbles and soap off of her when she was in the bath. Me, I'm only interested in the lotions.


p.s. I never get a WFT visiting me when I have a bath. I'm going to ask for that for xmas.

Sophie Brador said...

Oops. Almost forgot. Get better soon Asta-mom!

Jake of Florida said...

Asta baby,

We're so glad you were there to take care of your Mommi!! We hope she's feeling better. It's a good thing you had all that practice in nursing with Jackson!!

And we love the rug! Where did you find it?

Woofs to you and your Mommi.

Jake and Just Harry

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, I hope your Mum is feeling better now. J1 says I need a bath too cos I'm a bit stinky from the vet and everything. I think I'm going to go and hide under the bed. J x

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh my dog, Asta, please check your Mum is ok, and she hasn't turned into a prune!

Hope she is feeling a bit better now, although I am sure Nurse Asta will work medical miracles, your fwiend,

Luckie Girl said...

Hi Asta,
I hope your Mommy is better now? :) She has very nice toes..hehehe...cute!

Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

I'm so sorry your Mommy has been feeling poorly! Maybe she got what my Mommy had. While she had Bronchitis and Laryngitis, my Mommy took TONS of baths! It was like she was ALWAYS in there. You are too sweet to help your Mommy out with her bath. I always got kicked out cuz I would try to eat her scented bubbles. (Come on Cinnamon Buns and Mimosa, how's a dog not to try and eat the bubbles?) You are the best nurse dog anyone could wish for, but like Stanley said, take care of yourself, we don't want to see you get sick too! Kay? Stay healthy and I hope your Mom feels better real soon!

Your pal,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
Sure we hope your mom is feeling better now!
I am sure that bath you prepared for her worked!
Kisses and hugs for you, your mom and your dad.
Have a good night

you take very good care of your mommy. it's very admirable since you're really quite young! :)

good thing we don't have a bathtub, but all the same, HM goes into the shower a little too often than i like. she can still quite a long time in the shower, and i hurry her by scratching on the shower door.

did you feel like joining your mom in the tub? maybe it's not time for your bath yet :)


Patience-please said...

Oh sweet Asta, we just love, love, love your bathroom rug!
We are sending our miracle whippet healing energy to your human. We hope she feels better ever so soon.

Noah the Airedale said...

Crikey Asta, you're the best nurse around. Next time one of us is sick we're putting in an order for nurse Asta. Then we'll be better in no time.
We hope your mum feels better real soon. It isn't much fun being sick.
Keep up the good work.

Hugs and tail wags

Hi Asta! I'm so sorry your ma isn't feel so well. My ma ape takes baths all the time to feel better. She's a little loco. I love your bathmat, though! Cool! And I help my ma ape by watching her in the bath, too. I am sure your tender loving care will help her get better much faster.
