a tired dog is a good dog

Thursday, January 17, 2008


My Mommi has had a welapse..this means she stays mainly in bed cause she fells tewwible and woosy, but this doesn't mean we don't get to play..she sits in bed watching some junk on TV and I play on the bed ow chase things she thwows fow me..the hall is just outside the woom and if she aims wight she can make me wun to the vewy end chasing my ball..this time hew aim wasn't that good..but we still had fun

This is my cuwwent toy box..it oosed to be my little house, but these days I only get put in thewe when I'm weally annoying(nevew!)..besides thewe is no woom fwom all the toys
I sometimes get tiwed of the toys I have out and have to go seawching fow something mowe intewesting

the toy box is conveniantly located next to the bed so I can wun and get a new toy at any time while watching TV ow just hanging out with my pawents
I still haven't killed this snow guy fwom Chwissmuss..I think it's because I'm still longing fow snow, and this is as close as i've gotten this yeawAftew a while I juswt settle down fow a good chew..I love being with my pawents even if theiw stationawy,hehehe

Hey Asta, really sorry to hear that your Mum is ill. Please take good care of her!
I love your dog house/toy box. J1 wanted to get one for me but they're not big enough! Look at all those toys! And they all look as though they're in one piece. Are you slacking on the toy destruction front? Want me to help? J x

Poor mummy. I hope she stays tucked up in bed. We all know what a good nurse maid you are.

Hi Asta,

We know you can nurse your mommi back to health soon! Love your toy box. Our personal servant built one for us, but Mom took it over to keep her needle felting stuff in. So not fair! Your toys look like they are in better shape than most of ours. We absolutely MUST perform destructomania on every toy that comes in to our house!

Sorry to hear mommi is not well again, take good care of her.

I would come over to take you for a walkie but I too am home with the flu bug, the doctor said bed for 3 days hee, hee, I still sit at the pooter, all the blogs make me feel better.

Time to take some yucky medicine, talk to you later.

Hugs, belly rubs and smoochies

Take good care of your mommi, Asta -- and let us know how she's doing. See, it's a good thing you stayed home and didn't go to Boston with the other nurses.

Love to you and your mommi!!!

Jake, Just Harry and our Mom.

Well wishes for you Mommy from Wyoming! Staying in bed is the best thing she can do!

Unknown said...

Oh Asta Babe!

I am so sorry to hear your Mommy isn't feeling up to par! I sure hope she feels bestest soonest ever!

I destroyed me bikini chicken I got for my birthday last night...I ate off her lips and head...then I pulled out her squeaker...Mom fixed her, but won't let me play with her unless she is watching now...I resorted to my Chops...My lamb...I call her chops...short for lamb chops...mmm!

Love, Hercules

Daisy said...

I am sorry to hear that your mom is not feeling well. I hope she gets better soon! But it does look like you are still having lots of fun. I love the big smile on your face when you brought the toy back!

Gus said...

Asta and Mommi:

We are sorry to hear that you are housebound, but it looks like Asta, at least, is not suffering too much. We hope Mommi is feeling better soon, and that you get at least a little snow to play in soon.

We hope your mommy feels better soon!!
But at least you're still having fun, right? Maybe some of your happiness will rub on to her and make her feel better...
Oh, and the question you asked on our post about the fourth picture, the doggy was actually peeing and I went over to go check it out...and yes, that's one reason I really needed the bath... hee hee..

Stanley said...

Hey, Astaroni Sweetpea!

Looks like you're taking good care of your mommi! She's getting some physical therapy even while resting in bed. You're very clever to get her to exercise like that. Give her a big juicy goob smooch from me to get her back on her feet again soon!

That is an unusual looking little house you used to live in. It's very George Jetson. I like it as your toy basket.

Be sure to take time to snuggle up to your mommi so she gets the heat she needs!

Goober love & smooches for you,
Stanley Boy

Patience-please said...

Oh Asta, I know your mommi will feel better soon because you are trying sooooo hard to make her all well. What a great cheerer-upper you are!
I will get the rest of the Waggle to help me send her our best miracle whippet healing vibes.
I heard you squeak your squeaky and tried to jump through the monitor, but it didn't work.

We hope your mommi feels better soon. You have such a great big smile in that first video, Asta. It's super cute. I can tell you love to play with your mommi.


Luna "The Scruffy Yacht Dog" said...

Hope your Mom feels better faster than you can destuff that snowman!
My Mom was playing your video, I came running and was looking for that squeaking sound coming from. I thought she had one of my toys. Boy, that was a bad joke...but I did get a bone, so thanks Asta!

With wagging tail,

Petra said...

You have a very cool toy box and your mom was thinking when she put it next to her bed.

I hope your mom's relapse soon turns into a prolapse and you have a great weekend, Asta!

Kousin Asta,

Those were two great videos. You did an excellent job of keeping Mommi company, but she didn't do a good job of resting!

You are a real sweetie. I love your smile!

Hope Mommi is feeling better soon.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

The WriggleButts said...

Hi Asta darling. Hope your mommie is feeling better very soon, but at least she's made sure to have your house specially designed for dog-play even with sick hoomans. We're very impressed! Mom should be switching interior decorator (so at least we'll have a house that hooman-proofed)...

We gave you an award since we enjoy your blog so very much!

Bajas, Coco & Nimbus (so that's a lot of kisses... you might wanna share a few with your mom to help her heal up nicely)

hey Asta, we finally got to do our post about mom's old poodle, Tony. the only picture that she could find was pretty bad, but at least it's something!


Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Sorry to hear that your mommy is not well. Hope she gets better soon, especially since you are such a good nurse.

You have a great toy box and lots of wonderful toys. Can't imagine you being put in there for being annoying! You're never annoying.

I would LOVE to be your sissy!!!! Momo dog is also my sissy. What lovely sisters I have - I am ecstatic! Sissy Asta!!!!!!

Ozzie, Rocky and Lola said...

We sure hope your mom starts feeling better soon! We bet you are the best nurse ever Asta!

Charlotte said...

Your mom is sick? Gee I'm so sorry to hear it. Hope she is better soon. My SMS is back! I told her about all my new friends and she was astounded, even more so when there is a doggie amongst them. She is so glad I am getting over the fear of doggie.

Mack said...

I would cuddle with you any day!!

Kirby said...

Nurse Asta to the rescue again. You are one busy dog, girl! I'm so sorry that your Mommy isn't feeling too well, but I'm glad that you are there to take care of her and cuddle and keep her warm. I love your toy bin, I often dig in mine to keep myself busy as well. It's been so COLD here this weekend, that I've been in the bin A LOT! I hope Mommy is feeling better real soon, so you can go out and about!

Your pal,

Jan Price said...

I stopped by to thank you for your nice comment. Yes, the cornbread batter was delicious! And Jan did forgive me but she doesn't understand the rule of dogs. If it's within smelling distance, it must be for us.

Hi, Asta! A froot bat is more of c-a-t thing. It means you have giant, giant ears and a sort of small, wedge-shaped head. My ears look sort of froot batty sometimes, so I'm sort of an honorary froot bat. Mom tried to link these but she's html-challenged. heh (That deleted comment above came from us, by the way.)
On our bloggie's sidebar, you can check out "Dragonheart" (and his new brother, Merlin), Kaze, Luxor,
and everybody's friend, Skeezix, to see some real, live froot bats.
Hope you had a great weekend and hope your mom is feeling lots better.


Sassy Kat said...

I'm sorry that your mom isn't feeling good, it is nice though that she is well enough to play a little with ya. Hope she gets feeling good soon.
