Putter said...

Hi Asta! Hi!

I am with you sweet friend ... It is bleak here too AND Mom is always PLAYING with MY baby brothers (Mom: Your Mom is playing a lot with you TOO Putter ...) AND since Mom is always PLAYING with MY baby brothers, I clearly NEED something to DO!!!!!! Mom SEES it as trouble making, I simply SEE it as finding something to DO!!!!!!! I swallowed her sandwich WHOLE the other day and that did not go over well and just a few minutes ago, I tried to SWALLOW a bottle nipple ... Mom is not too happiest ever with ME right now either ... I just don't understand it!!!!!!!!! Do you think maybe you should come live here with ME or I should come live with YOU and this stuff would not happen anymnore???? Let ME know what you think, K?????

Your Friend,

Putter ...:))))))

Hey, Asta,

We're sorry you're in so much trouble. We hope your mom remembers how cute you are and how loyal and how ... She'll forgive you, but eating shoes is a no-no. Ask Buddy and Samaritan.

Noah the Airedale said...

G'day Asta,
It's bleak and dull down here too so we know how you feel. It's been raining on and off for weeks now.
Don't worry about Santa though, we can all get away with a little destruction every now and again. About your mum though, well she's probably got lots of shoes, we hope.
Hope Stanley and Stella are ok.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah, Willow, Tess and Lucy

Ben & Darling said...

Hi Asta, I have not received your card yet but I will keep an eye on the mailman...to avoid them to keep it for themselve....anywhere TQ in advance & I hope you got mine soon too.

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
Oooops! Tell your mom we are sorry about her shoes, but sure she got the message!
I am praying for all our friends who have very bad weather right now! I really hope they all are ok!
Have a good night

Ferndoggle said...

Oh sweet Asta...sometimes the only thing that can make you feel better is gnawing on some shoes. I once was really scared that my Mom & Dad weren't gonna come home so I ate Dad's brand new running shoes. He was super duper mad at me but Mom said he finally learned to put away his shoes.

It's been grey & yucky here too...'cept for tonight. But a big rainy/snowy front is coming & we'll be stuck inside for a few days.

I feel your pain.


Snowball said...

Asta, I hope the weather gets better so that you can go play outdoors with all you furry friends again soon.


Gus said...

Oh Asta Sweetie...shoes are sancrosant, especially shoes as cute as those are. Err. Were. And books are the next worse thing. Good thing we mailed your pressies for St. Nicholas and didn't wait...you gonna make lots of money sellin all that coal you get in your stocking.

Ah well, maybe you will be forgiven. We love the illustrations your Mommi did for your grey day. She can't be too mad at you, maybe, huh?


Koobuss said...

Oh kousin Asta,

What did you do? I don't see anything wrong. Not a thing.

Our weather here has been very yukky, too. We have had the same day for almost a week. It's a good thing that I got my snow orders out when I did. Yesterday and today my mom was able to take me for my walk. I don't know how many I'll get in the next couple of days though. It does not look good.

Great pictures of you on the couch. They don't look blurry to me.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

asta sweetie i am sorry i haven't been around to leave messages, i have been sick lately, but i'm glad i got here in time to tell you not to worry, your mommy will be angry for a bit and then she'll remmeber she loves you very much, more than her shoes and then all will be ok again :)

how did you manage to get to the shoes? :)


Par said...

Ohhh...you chew those shoes bad :P

Patience-please said...

Asta, my sweet, here's a poem for your mommi:

I know nothing of expensive shoes.
I only know it smells like you.

It's rain rain rain rain rain rain RAIN AGAIN here and I was hating it. But now I'll think of you when I see the rain, and I'll know the same rain is dripping on you and that will make me feel warm and happy and silly and I'll blush.

your whippet-
Sam I Am

Patience-please said...

Woo-hoo! Asta you can pee mail me anywhere! dogwalkers@comcast.net on the upstairs computer or wwmanagement.patience@gmail.com is on both.
Can't wait!!!!
especially excited Sam I Am

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Asta, I'm getting gloomy weather with lots of rain and no snow too. Does that means you're staying the next block across mine?
I wish we can go visit our friends to have fun.

I hope your mom wasn't too mad at her shoes (you didn't do it right) I bet it melted coz of the weather..

Amber-Mae said...

We've been having yucky weather here too for the past week. My mommy is not happee...Oh, you did a pawsome job with her shoe! Hope she's not too angry.

Love licks,

We sure hope your Mum forgives you soon for eating her shoe. Was it tasty by the way?

Santa Paws is sure to visit you, you are a good girl and just have the occasional misdemeanour and they do not count!! Well we hope so cos we just ate the Christmas wrapping paper! whoops.

Harry said...

Are you sure you weren't just trying to customise mummy's shoes into open peep toe sandals? Maybe she sould be admiring your design efforts rather than being cross.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh you poor dear.. I am sure your mom will forgive you in no time. Don't worry ok. As for Santa Paws, I am this one act will not tarnish the good record that you have had in the past.

Amber said...

Hey Asta, hope your mommy isn't angry with what happneed to her shoe. The weather is terrible here too.. It rained everyday, but I had a short walkie just now before it poured, phew.. :)
Have I thanked you for your card? I can't recall.. Anyway! thank you for your lovely card :)
Hope you receive mine soon.

Daisy said...

Do not worry Asta. Chewing up the shoe was just a little mistake you made. I am sure Santa Claws knows the difference between a mistake and being naughty. I hope you get some sunshines soon!

Faya said...

Mais Asta ! De toutes façons ces chaussures ne sont plus à la mode. Tu empêches ta maman de faire une énorme faute de goût question mode...si si je te le promets !
Bisous plein de neige, Faya

Stanley said...

Astaroni Sweetpea!!

Thank you for checking in on us. We are all well, but like you, we are bored. At least Stella & I have each other (and Merv) to chew on.

I hope you world gets sunny again soon. Mine is sunny just knowing that you love me.

Goober love & smooches all around at your house,
Stanley Boy

Pugsley, Buster, Cricket & Daisy said...

It is very rainy, snowy and icy here too. You correct, very gloomy. We tired of it. Sorry to hear about your mom' shoe. Maybe another pup did it. Surely that has to be it. Maybe santa paws bring her a hunnert pairs to replace those.

the many Bs said...

hi Asta, don't worry. your mom can get new shoes and maybe she will remember to put them in a dog-safe place. humans have to be responsible for their stuff. we dogs can't know what's chewable and what's not.
and Stanley and Stella will keep warm. we'll go over and see them, but they will be okay. their mom will take care of them.
you don't need to worry so much. maybe you should rip one of your stuffies apart to relieve some of your anxiety.


Clover said...

Hi Asta!
Sorry to hear about your grey day!! Hope today is a brighter one. And oops - I am sure you didn't mean to chew Mommi's shoes! I think she and Santa will overlook the mistake.
Love Clover xo

Le Mops said...

Jake of Florida said...

We learned the shoes lesson a while back -- although JH had a relapse and chewed the leather off the heel of a shoe Mom had just bought -- and now we stick to pens, pencils, paper, and anything else like that that we can troll off the counter and table.

We think your Mom will understand though -- unless they were VERY EXPENSIVE shoes.

The sketch is lovely, so she can't be tooooo mad.

Wiry love,

Jake and Just Harry

Ralph said...

Whoops! did those shoes taste like steak?


Petra said...

I think this is perfect timing, Asta. You can tell Santa Paws that your mom wants a new pair of shoes for Christmas!

FleasGang said...

You could always convert to Judaism and bypass Santa all together. And if you hurry, you can catch the end of Chanukah :-)

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, now you have to chew the other shoe to make them a matching pair! J x

Agatha and Archie said...

TeeHee that Jackson(his comment above us) Well we have heard that Santas short term memry is like PL2s so you should be just fine..Besides if your Mom is like PL2 she has lots of others so what is the big deal????Get ready and geared up little one we(you and us) are getting a BIG Nor"Easter with a million feet of snow....Archie is worried about how he is going to go to the bathroom....Love A+A

Lizzy said...

Oh dear Asta, your mommy's shoe does not look good... I hope you aren't in too much trouble...


Kirby said...

I'm so tired of this yucky weather too. Is it icy by you? I slipped on the ice yesterday and fell into the snow. He he! I hope we get some better weather so you can go to the wun and play with all your pals. Nice work on the open toe shoes. Mommy loves those (pre-bite of course). Keep on chewing!!

Your pal,

Luckie Girl said...

Hey Asta,
I know the gloomy weather just makes you have so much pent up energy inside. It's not your fault okay?
PS : I am sure your Mom needed an excuse to get more new shoes anyway?

Boo Casanova said...

asta dear,

i'm sure stanley and stella are doing fine. i'll go over to his blog after this.

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

Asta...what amazing work you did on those shoes!! I thought you were a nursey, but you clearly have fashion designer written all over you! Mumsie has some shoes that look like they could be redesigned. Perhaps you could help.

I am sure your mom is not mad at you. Your mom draws and paints...you design. Same difference, Girl.

Hey, what's with Sam, I Am,??? He's smitten. You have so many boyfriends, Asta!

Perhaps we can lean on eachother on the pond this weekend.


Joe Stains said...

uh oh you better be good or santa might bring you a little house like the doofus. he cant be trusted home alone so he has to be in jail when Mom and Dad are not home!

Simba and Jazzi said...

I have a feeling I would have been made into slippers if I'd done that to the shoes.

Simba xx

Hammer said...

Hi Asta
Santa is a nice guy, even though he's ancient like my mum. If the hoomans are going to leave us alone, they have to pay the consequences. This is not our fault. It is the hoomans fault, and Santa understands. A pair of eaten shoes aint nothing compared to what we do when our mum leaves us. Thank you for your bootiful Christmas card which arrived today. Did your mum paint this .. it is bootiful, and you know what, Santa is not gonna get mad at you coz your mum loves you so much.
Love from Hammer

Murphey said...

Oh Asta, I've destroyed so many pairs of my ladies shoes, she always forgives me, but boy, does her face get red when she gets mad....

I hope it stops raining soon and isn't grey for long.


Unknown said...


Don't worry about Santa being mad at you because it was an accident. Mommy never gets mad at me when I chew up Dad's socks because it is HIS fault he left them out...

Boring it is inside with all the ice. Mom bought me a new soccer ball so we could play inside with it. A few more indoor lessons (I usually only play outdoor soccer.) and I think I'll have her beat!

You are too cute to be mad at...I am sure your Mommy just feels bad for you being bored with all the bad weather!

Sending you smoochie kisses to cheer you up..
