Thanks, Asta, for letting us see Opal. She looks like a very wonderful dog for Nanny!

The wind was howling last night and blowing so hard I refused to go outside to potty. I couldn't believe that Motch even thought of putting me out there.

I'm ready for warm sunshine and gentle winds and green grass to romp around in.

Molly the Airedale said...

Myrna is so cute! Maybe you can play together if you keep your distance! How about baking cookies together in the kitchen!
Congratulations on your award, Asta!

Love ya lots,
Maggie & Mitch

Mack said...

Those are such cute pics of you Asta! You know you are a very photogenic little girl! Too bad your sissy has a cold. And we hear you on the weather situation. Every time it rains we are stuck inside. That's just so wrong!

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Hey Sissy Asta, why don't you come and visit me? We have great weather and Sassy is here, plus two other mystery cat friends. Come and see if you could recognize them.

Stanley said...

Astaroni FB!!

Your efelant is tough, just like you. I think he can take whatever you dish out. (By the way, that photo of you with part of efelant hanging out of your mouth shows your tough side very well). Too bad I can't live the life of our efelant and have you play bitey with me.

Goober love & smooches,

Unknown said...

Thank you for honoring us with the award!! I am glad I can make you think outside the treat box like they say. But really, who wants anything but what is IN the treat box. I am now confused. ANYWAY I hope your weather improves very soon!

Anonymous said...

Huskee and Hershey said...

Congrats on the award Asta!
I like your elephant.. it looks very girlie. I think I had one just like it when I was a pup but umm.. it 'died of an overdose of too much lovin'! Remember to treat yours with LOVE!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Amber-Mae said...

I hate it when the weather is rotten too becoz that means we can't go play in the rain & go for walkies becoz of the soggy grass & all...Oh my, I haven't' been visiting Opal's blog for sometimes already! I'm gonna head over there right now! Thanks for reminding!

Love licks,
Solid Gold Dancer

Daisy said...

Asta, if you cannot go outside and play, at least you have a very fun elephant toy to keep you busy. I'm sorry Myrna got a cold; wearing that cute coat should keep her warm and help her get better fast. Congratulations on your award, and thanks for thinking of me, too! And now I am off to visit Opal!

Sophie Brador said...

Hey Asta, It's super windy here too, and cold. Everything is covered with ice, because it rained and then froze. It's no fun, even for me. But we are getting 20 cm of snow tomorrow. I'll try to send some your way.

The Furry Kids said...

Aww, Asta! I feel your pain. It's too cold to be outside for very long. I just run out and do my business and run back to the door. It's way to cold to even hunt for bunny poo. :(
Hopefully, we'll be able to play outside again soon!


Koobuss said...

Congratulation on the award Asta. You so deserve it. And, Thank You, kousin Asta for passing this beautiful award on to me. It was so nice and thoughtful of you to do that. I am glad that I can cheer you up when you are sad. It makes me sad when those I love are sad, and I don't like being sad.

Thank You again.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,
Kousin Koobie

Princess Patches said...

Hi Asta, we are sorry you are having such rotten weather! Here, it isn't bad right now, but this afternoon and tomorrow we are supposed to have loads of rain! Mom will be mopping the floor constantly! The wind is so strong it's enough to blow a doggie over! It's a good thing we are pretty big girls! I hope you get to go to the wun soon!

Poppy & Penny

Isis said...

Sweet Asta, you're not alone in this misery, this terrible weather... I am with you, er, 10 cats and our 2 woofies are with you. In the Netherlands is exact the same as in NY.

Can I borrow your elephant??

Hammer said...

Hi Asta
I sent you an e-mail message. Thank you for thinking of me on my barkday.
It wasn't raining today but it was soooo hot. My mum took me to the beach but I didn't want to walk .. it was too hot.
Mum bought me 3 cream barkday cakes this week, even though my nickname is now "Fatso".
Are you going to Gaucho's surprise barkday pawty ? Hope I see you there.
Love from Hammer

Ruby Bleu said...
