You look so cute at the piano! With your talent you will be an accomplished pianist in no time.

Hope you are better now and not barfing anymore. Barfing is no fun.


Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, it looks very wet and miserable there, just like here! I'm sure you'll learn to play some carols in a jiffy. If you need me to howl along, just let me know! Or maybe I could be your page-turner? J x

Juno said...

Nothing like a bit of de-stuffing to get you in the mood for some piano playing!

You have musical paws Asta!

Musical paws!

Hope you are feeling better now! And the darn slippers are not giving you indigestion still!

love and licks, Marv xxxx

Agatha and Archie said...

Please don't eat any more stuffies, I want you well for my visit, also I expect you to play the piano and sing carols for me.

Tell Mom I will let her know by the end of the week when I am coming to the city, looking toward Saturday afternoon the 8th if you are available.

Hugs and bellyrubs

Huskee and Hershey said...

Hi sweet Asta,
Such a bummer about the weather huh.. I was supposed to go to the park yesterday but it started raining SO heavily that I had to stay home..
Great... I shall be looking forward to listening to you playing the piano and singing Christmas carols!

Lizzy said...

Wow! I've tried playing the piano before, but I'm not very good at it. I bet you'll be great with lots of practice!

I'm glad you're feeling fine now.


Patience-please said...

Oh, dear Asta! We know how you feel. Seven of us had the tummy terrbles yesterday and all we got for diner was rice and broth.
We hope you feel better. You look so darling at the piano!

gentle nose dabs-
Your whippet friends and the servant

Sophie Brador said...

Asta, With your whirlwind life, I don't doubt you were confused when you looked out the window.

Do you think it was the stuffies or the slippers that pushed your tummy over the edge?


Girl Girl Hamster said...

Hey Asta, you're so smart I bet you'll figure out how to play the piano real fast. Maybe I should learn to play wht violin then we can do a duet. :)

Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

I would love to sing a Christmas carol with you. You are such a musical pup. Singing and playing the piano! I bet you won't need all that time to practice, I bet you'll be a pro real quick. I'm glad you're feeling better after your stuffy destuffing. I throw up after I eat my stuffies too. Something about the stuffing in the terrier tummy, just doesn't mix.

Your pal,

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta.
Sure you chose the perfect day to start playing the piano.
I know you are very talented and you will master it pretty soon!
Slippers?? You know they are great toys but not good food! I really hope your are feeling better now!
Is your mom's birthday?? Happy Birthday to her!!! Did you celebrate it with her?? Let us know!
Have a good night

Ben & Darling said...

Asta Sweetie, you are so talent. You can play & sing !!! Will you send us your recording tape??

ChaChi Lu said...


You know how to party! Piano and Stuffy destuffing! Now THAT is a party!

Koobuss said...

It's good to see you back playing the piano again, kousin Asta. I remember when you used to play it regularly.

Stay away from eating stuffies. They're yukky. I hope you don't do that again, dear sweet little kousin. Besides, Christmas decorations taste better.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, we think you will make a very good piano player. you can use your tail for a metronome!

sorry to hear that you had to throw up from your stuffy de-stuffing and slipper eating. do you like to eat that stuffy stuff? we think it's fun to scatter it all over the house and then watch mom pick it up. you should try that next time and then your tummy won't get upset!


Daisy said...

Asta, you are so talented! And you made some very beautiful music. I wish I could accompany you on my drums.

Amber said...

Hey Asta,what a glommy day over there. At least you learnt how to play piano. I like to hear you play one day.

Amber :)

Ferndoggle said...

It's been gross & ugly here too. No walkies in THREE days for us! Sorry to hear you were sick from the stuffies...just kill 'em, don't eat 'em!

Sherman, Penny & Lola

Katie said...

HI Asta... our mom plays the piano, too. Sometimes, she will play and we will sing. We could start a pup party band.....

Frasier said...

Hi Asta,
Thats really good piano playing!!!Now all you need is a pretty dress for your debut!!
Ooh you must have had a bad case of the stuffie pukies !!
As long as it all came out !!

Murphey said...

Practive Practice and more practice! Or you could just let the peeps play and "sing" along?!


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

Hey Girl!!! One day after Big Bruvver went back to obedience college and Scruffy was a pup, Daddy and Mumsie were having a quiet evening reading. Suddenly the piano began to play at the other end of the house. Yep, old Scruffy went out in the living room and did some mitey fine paw bangin' on the keys. Mumsie said he didn't compose anything memorable, but it was a Terrier Original. Never did it again either.
Scruffy might have saved my life today; I'm not sure. Will maybe post it tonight or tomorrow.

Keepin' you in suspense,

Luckie Girl said...

Stanley said...

Sweet Astaroni Fuzzbutt!

I love to see you at the piano! Bet those keys love being tickled by a talented pup such as yourself. I can just hear those notes ringing out in your clear pupcake voice, and I wish I could be there to sing along with you!

Your mommi mentioned that you snacked on daddi's slipper the other day. I'm glad to hear it's made the Asta colon tour and left the building.

You are a most talented girlie, and I am so thankful that you still have time to be GooberStan's Minister of Culture!

Goober love & extra smooches,
Your STanley Boy
