Peanut said...

Oh you don't want to be in that club if you have to change yourself. You look cute though.

Maya and Kena said...

BOL Asta!
It's ok if you can't join the club, you should be yourself anyway, but we understand the temptation..
Have a great day!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

oh dear, Asta, you are certainly in the club now! but did you hear that now they are letting Scruffy play with them? we hope you don't want to get a perm to join the curly poodle club - hee hee! there's only one problem with that - the curly poodles don't have a club. the only club we have is the very exclusive "d-o-g" club. cats can't join, but you can. hee hee! please don't dye your hair to be part of the club - we wuf you just the way you are, especially with your little fuzzy butt!


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

OMD, Asta....Asta...what in the living heaven did you do????????? Asta...they are PUPPIES....who didn't know any better. Silly Lacie and Babystan....they know now that not allowing dogs, kitties or hamsterriers in a club based on fur color is just plain MEAN! You didn't have to change your fur color...or Peanut's right...ya don't wanna be in their sttooopid club....but Mumsie put her foot down anyway...and the puppies aren't gettin' away with that behavior anymore. And...um...no more guys only poker games. SO...

Becuz Mumsie said we all play together with NO dividers between color or gender...the next PAWTY here is gonna be SWEETTTTTTTTTT!!!

Yep...all dogs will be slumbering in the SAME room...umm hmm...before Mumsie always said there had to be a boys room and girls...now, wait till I tell her what she started!


Pee Ess...You'd make a really hot Welsh...don't tell Stan I said so!!!

Agatha and Archie said...

You could be an Airelakewelshpup!! Orange does look nice on you!!Love A+A

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I know orange is your favorite color but I prefer your beautiful original fur colors!
Good luck joining the club!
Have a good night

Ruby Bleu said...

Oh Asta...
don't go changing to just be part of some club...you are pawfect just the way you are!!! Like my Nanny said...just start your own club! Can I be part of it???

Lots of Licks, ruby

Sassy Kat said...

Oh sweetie, why did ya dye your beautiful fur. It would have been easier to start your own club. I think when your fur grows out you will be the right color again. But ya know what????? No matter what color ya are ya aare a cutie. If I had a club ya could join, and I would even make ya president!! Ya almost look like ya have a sun burn.

Joe Stains said...

Oh Asta, LOL, we are laughing um WITH you, not at you. I don't think you should have to change to be in any club, just be happy with who you are!!

Jan Price said...

Hey, Asta, We're trying to figure out why you dyed yourself orange to join a black and brown club? Good thing that club was quashed by the mom before another dog tried the same thing.

We think you are adorable whatever color you are.

Kirby said...

Hi Asta,

Oh, I liked you just the way you were as a WFT. That's what makes you so special. You are still the sweet Asta that we all love no matter if you're black & tan or white & tan. Babystan and Lacie are silly little pups still and they don't understand. Sounds like their mumsie will set them right. You do make a cute Lakie or Welshie or baby aire girl, but I like you as Asta the adorable WFT best!

Your pal,

Gus said...

ooooh.. I don't want you to change sweetie. You are a WFT! And bootful. Even Orange. This sounds sooooo much like a Teka Trick!

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh dearie... What have you done to yourself lil' Asta??! Brings to my mind the song 'Just the way you are' by Diana Krall...
'Don't go trying some new fashion
Don't change the color of your hair'

Islay said...

Hi Asta - just checking in to ground control! We really enjoyed your post about your parents, and the B&W photos came out beautifully. My human was in Hungary about 20 years ago and found it a marvellous place with lively people, so she especially enjoyed that post! As for your new colour, I think you look pretty psychedelic - ready for a real club, in Berlin, London or California!

Cheerios, smoochies, & happy happy new year


Mrs Mac said...

Hmmm.... well mine need doing every 5 weeks or so!


Oh Asta, I think you looked perfect as you were! Why not start your own club, and say that terriers of ANY colour can join? You'd soon have more members than them, and more fun!

Hugs, (I need them at the mo, and Bob, Dilly and the other Bears are all a bed) and a tickler under the chin (my dog, Tog, used to love that).


Mrs Mac said...

(a tickle, I meant, not a tickler. Though I do have a feather duster under the stairs. I could use that, if you like. But you mustn't chew it.)

(Oh, and I didn't mean to imply that Dilly was one of the 'other bears'. Please don't tell her.)

Sassy Kat said...

I am so happy that ya can be in their clue. Cause if they didn't let ya in it would be their loss for not having such a sweetie around.
Oh, hurry with your guess, ya only have one day left!

Maya and Kena said...

Aww..you're right! Maybe you should ask your parents fur a furbling! But it's really hard work, let me tell ya!! Ya gotta share EVERYTHING!!
Thanks fur the comment on our pics! Hee hee..mommy just learned to make animations on photoshop and she's been having lots of fun on the program!
Wags and licks,
Maya and Kena

ooooh Asta! wouldn't it be easier to just roll in the mud? it washes off, i know, but it's not as smelly as that hair-coloring stuff is it?

what a sweet story about why your mommy chose a WFT to keep her company :) she must have loved little Vieli alot. i'm glad that your mommy and her best friend still keep in touch :) she must have been excited when your mommy got you!


Koobuss said...

Oh Kousin Asta,

What did you do to yourself?? Don't you know that it's what's on the inside of you that matters, not the outside!! And on the inside we are all the same. A doctor once told my mom that our insides are kind of a neutral color when she asked him if her gall bladder was green.

Did anyone tell you that you look like one of those cheeze-its?

What were you thinking, Asta? You will probably need lots of baths now. I hope that you don't turn pink like Koobus II did when he got a tomato juice back after being sprayed by a skunk.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

pee ess Are we still related even though I am not orange?

Girl Girl Hamster said...

Woh Asta, you look very orange now. Do I have to color myself orange too to be in the same group as you?

~ Girl girl

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, I know that orange is your favourite colour, but I think you look better au natural! J1's hair went that colour once when she put henna on it and then fell asleep! J x

Snowball said...

I think its a good idea to have a change in hair colour once in a while. Hmm...mm... Let me think what colour will look nice on me...


Noah the Airedale said...

Oh little Asta, you don't have to change your colours, you were perfect the way you were. Don't you change ok.

Hugs and tail wags
Noah Willow Tess & Lucy

Harry said...

Oh my Asta! I hope it was a wash in wash out dye as I tthink you are perfect just the way you are.

Toodle pip,

Simba and Jazzi said...

I wonder if eating too many oranges has the same effect?

Stanley said...

Sweetpea Astaroni!

I think it's all already been said, but we all love you just as you are (though you look cute in any color fur). I already told BabyStan and Lacie that I wanted NOTHING to do with their little club and that I didn't like the way they were treating Scruffy.

I think you could start your own club... maybe you've heard of the "Cashmere Mafia?" You could start a club called the Fluff Fur Mafia, or something like that.

Goober love & smooches to my WFT girlie,

Amber-Mae said...

Asta, why change your color to just join the club! I think everydoggies should be allowed to join the club no matter what breed we are & what color we are. Please wash away the paint...

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

The Black and Tans. said...

Ooh Asta we think you are very daring to use your Mummy's special magic paint. Did you get in very big trouble?
We agree with everybody else, you are a very special WFT in her natural colours and you don't need to change. We do hope it all goes away soon the orangey colour.

Molly and Taffy

Daisy said...

Oh Asta, your natural fur colors are already the most beautiful of all!

Sassy Kat said...

Oh no, is it too late to be in your guest book? I tried once to put myself in it but didn't know how to do it and forgot to ask ya about it? If I sent ya a photo could ya put me in it?

Mack said...

You are soo funny. I bet your mom was mad when she found out you stole her hair paint!
I think I like your original color much better!

Amber said...

Oh Asta!! I prefer your normal fur color!! But if this is what it takes to join the club.. good luck!! :)

Amber :)

Martha said...

Asta, you should start your own club! I much prefer our original color, which is just beeyooteeful! Love, Martha

Balboa said...

I agree with Peanut, you're just perfect the way you are!!!!!!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Oh Asta, you are such a hoot!!!!! SS just laughed and laughed when she saw you and this was in the quiet research centre. All the others thought she had finally flipped. We love you as you are or however you like to be, orange, green, blue or brown.

Jan Price said...

We read Sassy's comment and had the same problem. We tried to put in a collage photo a week or two ago but it wouldn't accept it. Every time we think about trying again, it says we are in San Francisco, CA. Not even close! We changed it but don't know if that was the problem. Perhaps our file was too large?

PS - Are you still orange?

Jan Price said...

Hey, Asta, We're glad you're going to tell your friends about Haggis.

And we came back to let you know this time we were successful in siging your guestbook. Don't know why it didn't go through the last time.
