sorry for archie!

and remember if you are feeling sad about things around you, it's okay to be feeling that way, it is genuine.

Gus said...

Wow...I'm glad you are still gonna blog. I would miss you lots, and muzzer would waste away without meals your mommi makes for incentive to cook herself.


Kirby said...

YEAH, Asta is still going to blog. I wouldn't know what to do if you weren't blogging. I'd be so sad! So, I'm happy to see you are still blogging. I love how you pounce, I do it the same way. Maybe we all kind of want to be like kitties. He he. And, look at you such a good little nurse. I didn't even know Archie was hurt. I'm sure glad he has someone like you to take care of him.
Keep on blogging girlie!

Your pal,

you got the pouncing right! awww it's so cute you lift your leg just before you pounce!

so happy that you're not going to stop blogging :) reading your blog is part of my happy time everyday! :)


Joe Stains said...

We are so glad you are still blogging and feeling better, plus you have your nursing duties to keep your mind busy! That pounce move is great, even if it was inspired from CATS.

Patience-please said...

Oh our Bloglines didn't tell us that Archie has a diagnosis. We are running over to see him now. Good job, Nurse Asta!!!

Lorenza said...

Hi, Asta!
I really hope you and your mom are doing well!
I love that video. I ignore my mom too and she calls me "big head"!
I am sure you are going to take good care of Archie!
Kisses and hugs

Stanley said...

Hey, Astaroni!

That's my girl! You are bouncing back, and cuter than EVER! You are so dainty with your ball, and your mommi is completely silly asking you what you're doing? Can't she see you're loving on your ball? (My girl is ALWAYS asking me questions she already knows the answers to).

You nursies don't forget to take care of yourselves too. I'm going over now to give the ArchMan some healing goob smooches!

Goober love & smoocharoonies,

Koobuss said...

I loved your video, kousin Asta. You are a very good pouncer. It kept me on the edge of my seat, waiting to see the next pounce.

Our friends Agatha and Archie need us. We have to keep Archie cheered up and Agatha rested. Bring your pouncing video. I am sure they will like that.

And don't be sad, dear little kousin. We love you.

Love and Koobuss Kisses,

Amber-Mae said...

Asta, glad you're not gonna stop blogging! Opy the gruff puppy will be sooo gruff if you did...We heard about Archie's knees & we hope that it will be back to normal soon.

Love licks,

Hello Asta

Molly the Airedale said...

We can't imagine not knowing how you're doing from day to day, Asta! We need you to keep us smiling, ya know!
Archie is going to need lots of care! We're so glad you're on the job!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Princess Patches said...

Hi Asta,
You better hurry and get Archie well in case you are needed at Maggie's house, when she gets home. Or maybe that snowmobile is fast enough for you to zip back and forth from Boston to California! We're glad you decided to keep blogging. Your antics always make us smile!

Poppy & Penny

Mack said...

You got some mad pouncing skillz!


Petra said...

Poor Archie! A whole month is a very very very long time to keep off his legs. When he gets better, maybe you can show him how you pounce. It might be a good exercise for him to do to strenthen his legs.

Motch says she would LOVE to come & visit you AND BRING ME ALONG! You're right -- I would fit right inside her pocket!

Lenny said...

What a good, kind WFT and nurse you are Asta. We're glad you're sticking around. Impressive pouncing!

Your friend, Lenny

Daisy said...

I hope your friend Archie is all better soon!

Asta, you are very good at pouncing. My favorite part was at the end when you picked the ball up and threw it to the ground!

Tesla and Hansel said...

i'm certains you and your fwiends will take good care of him!

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

Hey Asta...Scruffy is spreading rumors that all we are doin' is sippin' dogtinis with Asta in the bomb shelter...the nerve of him..

Um...I made a run out to the store...we need more ice, straws, do we want wum or vod ka? Hey, wait...I'm not one yet...can I buy this stuff??

Well, I'll try and stop at the grocery store for more snackies and PL2 needed some things for dinner...Call my cell if u need me...


Pee Ess...It's a good thing you caught Archie in an upright postion on those crutches...member how he wiped out right after u snapped that pic???!!!!

Murphey said...

Archie sure has mastered those crutches! Hope his legs feel better real soon.


Cat Naps in Italy said...

Oh Asta, we miss you too! We will work on being better bloggers! We want to say how happy we are that you are going to keep blogging. We know that sometimes it is sad to hear about our friends who are sick or who passed over the rainbow bridge, but there is also much happiness in the world. Reading your blog and seeing your funny pictures always puts a smile on our face. As long as you make people and animals happy, you HAVE to keep blogging!

Sending a big hug from Italy!
Opus and Roscoe
ps. Great job on the pouncing! You did that as good as any cat! We are so proud!

Jackson's J1 and J2 said...

Hey Asta, glad to hear you're not giving up blogging. What would we do without you???
Great pouncing technique. I can see it's taken a while to perfect. Archie will recover in no time with you on the dream nurses team! J x

Noah the Airedale said...

Oh thank goodness you've decided to keep on blogging. Good decision!!

You are such a good friend to Archie and Agatha. Always ready to help out.

Hugs and tail wags

Clover said...

Hi Asta,
I liked your pouncing video! I like to do that too... I rock a little bit before I pounce, just like you!
Thanks for the pictures of your city in the post before this one... it looks so beautiful and cool!!!
Love Clover xo

Angel MoMo and Charlotte said...

Oh no, Asta, you definitiely CAN'T stop blogging. I'll miss you tooooooo much! Please promise you WON'T!

Charlotte said...

Asta, you are a very good pouncer! As good as any catses that I know. Hope you are not going to stop blogging because you are such a friendly and fun doggie and I'll miss you.

My aunt lives in Manhatten. Near the big park. Is your house close to there?

Anonymous said...


Please do not stop blogging who would make me smile every day?

I know you were just kidding, right!

Well Lana is probably working on my pug by now, can't wait till I see her, oops I gues it is a girl, Ruby has not responded to help in my search for a name so, that means you and Mom will help right!

I promise the minute she arrives we will be on the train to see you. By the way it just dawned on me "Myrna" Duh like in Loy.

Gotta go now miss you

Love hugs bellyrubs and smoochies


pee ess did I tell you that Mack, Jackson, Scruffy, Lacie and Baby Stan adopted me as there Nanny too?

Lizzy said...

Wow, you're good at pouncing, Asta! Just like a real cat! But please don't really turn into a cat, 'cause they just can't be trusted!


Harry said...

Ouch, poor Archie, no wonder he was feeling so glum. I'm sure with the crack team of nurses on hand he'll soon be smiling again.

Toodle pip,
